OK, please tell us the designation of any weapon in any current or
past real-world military inventory that when dropped from an aircraft
is drawn to an object below it by magnetism.

And please explain what you believe maglev trains have to do with

it does not work the way the movie depicts it.

However, anybody expecting anything resembling real-world physics from
Star Wars has come to the wrong shop.
