túngeting tufash - railgun

First, if you remember, tung tung tung was the sound of a gun. Túngeting = gun. Now, a railgun is one that accelerates the projectile to a very high velocity (explosive powered guns' muzzle velocity no more than 2 km/s, railguns of the future could conceivably achieve 10x that). So, very fast - too fast - tufash. To be clear, it's not the rate of firing, but the speed of the projectile that is fast.
