If they were flying straight, they would perform much better.

Still it's a problem with electric guns, the amount of power they need even for basic performance is tremendous because they have such poor efficiency.

space guns wrote: Although both coilguns and railguns sound exotic, they are not new ideas. Speculations about coilguns for use as military artillery predate the First World War, and in 1917 a Frenchman named Fauchon-Villeplee actually built a working model of a railgun, with the shells fitted with "wings" that served as an armature. In 1937, an employee of the German Siemens company named Otto Muck started looking at railguns again, and in 1943 proposed the construction of a long-range railgun that could fire twelve 200 kilogram shells every minute, driven by a 100 megawatt power station. The German military was already committed to the development of long-range missiles and other V-weapons, and the project was not funded.

In 1944, another German engineer named Hansler proposed the development of a 40 millimeter antiaircraft railgun, and the Luftwaffe awarded him a development contract. However, with Germany collapsing under the weight of Allied armies, nothing came of Hansler's weapon. The Allies investigated the railgun concept after the war, but quickly discovered the limitations of the technology and gave up on it for a few decades.

The major problems with both railguns and coilguns are that they require very large power supplies, possibly unrealistically large for a space launch application, and also have to switch very large amounts of power in very short times. In addition, railguns are inclined to erosion of the rails after a few launches, and the designs based on plasma arcs have difficulties with uncontrolled arcing around the projectile or to the muzzle. The simple violence of firing a railgun also tends to impose destructive stresses on it.


Of course if you're the government...

For some reason I'm getting "suggested video" views on my youtube channel linked from this:

I've watched it intently for 2,736 times but I still can't see the link to airsoft pen guns :roll:

clearly youtube has become 'self aware' and using most popular search tactics it has given you smut.

raise the total searches for airguns, and we should see 'suggested video' with both smut and airguns, only logical...

suggested videos might be based on your search history... ads are even worse than that - google something and you can be sure to see ads related to that

These days I see mostly ads from hobbyking a few months ago all I got was industial valves and microcontrollers

This is views from other people though, where they were watching the music video and youtube suggested the pen gun as a related video. Does this indicate a corelation between a love for concealed weapons and Eastern European beauties :D

Only word I got out of it was "DANCE" but I don't think I'd have enjoyed it any more even if I understood every word :D

Oh we're all heterosexual now are we :D

Could have done without the guy flogging his dolphin in some scenes though, at times I thought it was my reflection in the screen :shock:

That's the only way I'd get a doctorate :D

Russian accents don't affect everyone in the same way I guess ;P Maybe you're more of a Nikita person?

In other news, damn precision guided munitions:

I like their target rig, presumably they were attempting to show not only how confident they were in the targeting but also how limited collateral damage was since the truck was seemingly unaffected by the explosion. Definitely saw some fragments hitting the tailgate in that last shot though...

It's a cross between an X-Wing fighter and a tampon.

Don't marry any woman older than 25
Haha really? I think that's one of the more ridiculous things I've read on WordPress, right up there with some RadFem blogs.

You could probably turn it on it's head as well and speculate as to what women might put for marrying a man over 25 (or perhaps an equivalent arbitrary value of a different age).

It sort of reminds me of what teenagers go through when they first become attached to a girl except this is creeping over in to adult life. They are incredibly jealous, want her for themselves, and would rather another man never laid his hands on her ever again. And if, when you become enamoured with this girl in your teens, she already has a "history" with other guys you starting thinking things like "You are eating someone else’s cold leftovers".
