Geez, waste of the money. This is what aliens do with modern US ships.

 

 

They should instead get BAE systems to fit laser and gauss cannons on Might Mo.

 

 

 

yea ive watched that movie, Powersliding with a 45000 tons battleship on sea with the bow anchor, much physics. But the CGI model were nice

/facepalm

Why are they even developing (non-rail) guns anymore? Just slap a GPS-guided MLRS on the deck and call it good. Pretty sure the guidance systems are a loooot cheaper when the projectile doesn't have to withstand so many Gs.

bcause Gauss guns are still in development state and bring alot of problems on smaller vessels, for a cruiser sized ship its a good weapon since a cruiser can put up enough Electric charge. Another problem is the Magnetic field that gets created then charging and shooting such a weapon this can damage the digital systemes.
