    When they figure out how to mount that to a Jet we are all in trouble. The germans were full of ideas that just didn't work. That gun was one of them. It was mounted on a train track so you couldn't aim it left or right. You could only hit targets in line with the track.

    The most fire power on a current plant now is the AC- 130 gunship. It's a C-130 Hercules with Gatling guns, 40mm and 105mm cannons mounted on it. They are all computer aimed. They have similuar software that the Apache helicopters have. If I remember right, they can put a round in almost every inch of a football feild with in a few seconds.



    Now Let's talk about ground based single weapon firepower.

    Here is my .50 cal Barrett rifle.



    It shoots rounds the size of my hand.



    I'm in the process of mounting this on the bow of my new Kayak. Imagine fishing on the side of a river and seeing that mounted to a kayak float by.

    Wow, that photo is incredible, are they just making a display with some kind of smoke trace dummy rounds? Is that a wartime shot? Your weapon is beautiful--

    They are shooting flares that defends the aircraft from heat seeking missles.

    The track was circular. You rotated it by moving it forward or backward on the track.

    True, I didn't read the page. I said what I said based on the gun that the Germans built called Big Bertha that they used to bomb France with. I assumed that the gun on the page was similar.

    Big bertha was pretty effective considering... the french had no idea what was hitting them for the longest time.
    that makes no logic

    Even though the Germans had used it on Belgium just to get through to France.

    I'd be interested in hearing more about that! They've got some pretty cool designs going on. Some are planned future reactors, and some of them are additions/modifications that can currently make to the Gen III reactors.
    Have you read up on Pebble Bed reactors at all? And interesting implementation of failsafe: they were able to figure it out to a point where the heat that the reactions create determines the speed of the reactions. So if things start running hot, then it forces less successfull fission reactions from ocurring all without mechanical or human intervention.

    I take it that you've heard about the prototype Fusion reactor that they've been working on in France for the past year or two? A while back they were deciding whether to build it in France or Japan. For some strange reason, they decided on France despite the fact that a) they are making some plans to phase out nuclear power (the last I heard and despite the fact that it gives them the majority of their energy,) most of the PARTS will be coming from Japan, and I think that even the project manager is Japanese. lol Consrtuction wont be done for a while, but it's an interesting thing to follow!

    But back to the topic of the weaponry, I've heard that the shells they use don't emmitt a lot of radiation. I've got access to some good sources that I'll be looking through, and I'll figure out a way for me to reproduce them for you guys.
