Today in the Company, head of the department of advanced mechanical automation was pleased to announce the final prototype of the Vangaurd armsuit, MkI.

The undeniably effective mechanical monster was designed to demonstrate vast amounts of power a heavy mech could bring into a combat scenario.

Its primary payload includes 2 Autofed 160mm Genotide railguns

Secondary weapon systems include 2 40mm Advanced tactical submachine cannons,
and a 20mm Gau-81 minigun.

A main concern with mechs was that because they stood in an upright position, armor couldn’t be as heavy as a tracked tank. Besides the Vangaurd having more sloped armor in the front than most tanks, and an advanced hydraulics system to support over 400 tons of armor, It still seemed necessary to include a SECT-02 magnetic countermeasure system.

SECT systems use high power magnetic waves to deflect most missile systems from mid air.
They suck up 40% of the vehicles power, making the rail guns go offline, but protecting the vehicle from attack. The focused magnetic waved have even shown to hold small shoulder fired missiles in mid air upon attack.

We expect to produce 70 units within the first two months of release.

It would be nice if it worked that way, but it doesn't. If you want a super power faction, work for it.

YOu get no resources from blowing stuff up...

And this isn't about if this makes sense, it's about the fact that space is not allowed, and you can't just decide you have a fleet of that size.

On a side note, should we ever choose to add space, I would like to propose a ban on orbital bombardment. It would eliminate space as the end-all-be-all, and just turn it into a place for superpowers to compete.

yes, it will take a while to get there. After the continent is full, we'll wage war and do stuff like that until we vote that I move the map to a global scale, and that will take much longer to fill up than this one will. only after the world map is done will I add the galaxy map, or some cluster of stars.

What I am trying to do with this is elongate the life of the group. When a group like this fill the planet, 2 or 3 super alliances form, and basically obliterate everything, and we have to start over. By making the scale of the group larger as we go on, I'm trying to keep it fun and interesting, as well as make it last longer.

Sounds good, but I dont like the obliterate everything part. Maybe just have Bablon as nuertral grounds, maybe unable to annexed.

I also like the idea of the galactic map having three, to five systems in each grid space, that way the bulk of fighting wont just be in ships. An attackig enemy might need to capture the planets to annex a territory.

A chart at the bottom could have the list of planets in every grid space.

I don't know, I personally like the idea of orbital bombardment, at least in a limited form, so while ships could be used for naval fire support, you would still need conventional forces.

I'm well aware of the shorter distances involved, but I was referring to the fact that Chris would either either be facing having a very long and vulnerable logistics trail, or simply invading by aircraft only. Either way, he would be at a significant disadvantage in a theoretical war since his opponent borders the disputed territory and therefore has a much better ability to project his forces. Chris's numbers may be impressive, but he currently can't actually project more than a small fraction of them.

Due to recent tensions between The Socialist Republic of Costigar and the Landsknechte Republic, Costigar has begun construction of the Victoria Line, a line of defensive outposts, gun emplacements, watch towers, and radar stations along the country's north-western border. When finished the line will span: http://i.imgur.com/ftCCYsg.jpg (The red line represents "The Line").

Well, bunkers certainly are obsolete (I honestly have no idea why recently building bunkers is the new big thing with certain members of this group XD ), but while I wouldn't go as to call railgun tank destroyers obsolete so quickly, I too am dubious of the concept. However, the modern form of the TD is most certainly not obsolete.

It would appear you don't understand the question. It's not railgun VS SABOT round, it's railgun VS chemical propellant guns (aka modern tank cannons). The advantage is clearly in the railgun's favor to due higher velocity, range, and not storing a large amount of explosives onboard the tank (so no ammunition cook offs). Also, I'm not sure if you are aware of this, but a railgun is perfectly capable of firing SABOT rounds. ;) In fact, SABOT rounds are quite possibly the most common railgun projectile used today.

A railgun is a gun using magnetic "rails" to fire a projectile right?
If that's true, it would require an immense amount of energy to accomplish throwing a projectile faster than a chemical propellant would, necessitating it own generator. Seems impractical to me, needs to be bulkier, and less versatile, and have a plethora of more things capable of goin wrong, justfor additional range, which tanks don't need much more of (modern MBTs can fire effectively at ranges over a mile). Additional velocity is the only real upside I see, but again, is the additional velocity necessary?

I could see railgun artillery having a purpose, but not a tank gun.

It's not just range , a railgun propels its rounds at much higher velocity, giving their rounds much better armor piercing capabilities. I also think you underestimate the importance of range, railgun armed tanks potentially being able to attack conventional tanks long before their opponets can return fire is a clear advantage. Railguns/coilguns are also capable of firing as fast as ammunition is fed into them, so a tank with railgun could have a much higher potential firing rate, and are smaller to boot. It should also be remembered that there is a good chance that guided railgun rounds will be possible (modern earth has guided artillery rounds), so a tank armed with a railgun could theoretically double as an artillery piece.

To sum it up, a railgun armed tank will hit harder, farther, faster, and will have perhaps 50% more ammo to work with.

The downsides about increased complexity are correct however, a railgun is quite a bit more advanced than a conventional cannon and has more potential points of failure. Rail wear is also an issue that needs to be considered. It should be pointed out though that reactors are not necessary, high-efficiency capacitors could be used instead, effectively acting as really big batteries. However, a reacter would still be better in the long run due to not having to be recharged. Overall, I would say your points are most definitely valid to a limited extent, but you should consider the wide variety of advantages the railgun brings to the table.

You might find this to be an interesting read on the subject (in fact, this whole site has a lot of cool ideas in it): http://www.orbitalvector.com/Tactical%20Weapons/Railguns/RAILGUNS.htm

Alrighty, I look forward to see what you have built, and my scientists look forward to reverse engineering if it's better than what we have ;) . I agree about airships being so expensive to make relative to what it would take to shoot them down.

Any missile that fast would easily evade modern CIWSs and give very little time for even a gauss weapon to engage, but lasers? He said it doesn't use very advanced technology, so I am guessing speed and a solid metal head to shield the explosives. I will admit, it sounds dangerous, but right now, I am more concerned by the eagle class battleship.

I myself am not willing willing to say any specific strategy I might use against it, but it takes an insanely long time to build ships of its class, and they would die far quicker compared to convential ships due to the simple fact that aircraft don't take damage well relative to an ocean going ship.

Today in the company, talk has circulated amongst military officials of a new top secret aircraft. The nimble 6th generation stealth fighter was dubbed the Naberius, by its creators.
This aircraft won’t be available for trade, and is expected in the next few weeks, along with the new battleshell hardsuit.
Its by far one of my favorite creations yet, I just don’t know how I should make the wings.

Personally, I would make the wings/entire aircraft wedge-shaped to allow for speeds a good deal faster than modern fighters.

try forward swept wings and canard foreplanes, like the Su 47. that is what my fighters will look like. I am doing an extended project on how nazi german aero technology influences modern aircraft designs, and the forward swept wing is in it. They provide the same high speed performance as backwards swept designs, but give fantastic low speed performance as they stall at the centre first, keeping wingtip stability. the foreplanes give extreme angles of attack.

While it's true that the swing wing design helps for extra manueverbility, from what I understand it might not be as useful of a feature as it would have been a few decades ago due to improvements in other areas of aircraft design. It should also be remembered that an aircraft with forward swept wings wouldn't be able to use stuff like scramjets.

Scramjets are not really practical for any plane that flies lower than the upper atmosphere. Surface heating poses too many problems and you need another engine capable of getting the craft up to Mach six first. I do agree that other improvements like thrust vectoring have also improved manoeuvrability, but I do not intend to get rid of them. I am thinking of a variable forward swept design, where the forward swept wing can increase its angle until it meets with the fore planes and becomes a delta design. Just an idea though, I will probably make something with a conventional tail, forward sweep, canard foreplanes and a new control surface connecting the two vertical stabilisers together.

That's only slightly better, but any such vehicle is automatically going to be a good deal inferior to conventional mechs and aircraft. If they do end up being allowed don't be surprised when they get slaughtered.

Would you like me to take out the word 'laser'? regardless, you still have anti-missile defenses. A tungsten shell at mach 12 is going to be a lot harder for your CIWS turrets to hit.

It doesn't even matter if the CIWS does hit since the tungsten is very dense and has so much velocity that there won't be a noticeable effect on the projectile. :) Personally, I mainly use hypersonic missiles protected by albative armor that carry 2 kiloton warheads to deal with this kind of threat, but either way an airship would be in big trouble if under attack from either weapon.

Missiles, yes. Gun armed fighter, no. Those are short barrelled guns, wing mounted. Even if they didn't tear the wings off, those large calibre shells would not be able to accelerate to Mach twelve over the tiny distance of the barrel. A small calibre round from a long barrel would be much better. When these large low velocity rounds hit an airship, either the armour thickness (eagle/reaper) or the gel layer (dreadnought) will absorb the energy. And what is to say that those missile defences won't turn on the fighter?

After looking at his fighter, I'm going to have to agree with you on this, I don't think his system would work as advertised.

The FNK has today tested a new project, which could, in theory, make an airship almost un-hittable by current weaponary. It's not some big fancy weapon, it's even quite cheap and can be installed on most existing airships if it proves to be effective enough.

Quite the businessman aren't you. Offer an airship killing missile to anyone who feels threatened by such machines, then make a defence system and offer it to the proud owners of said airships. When I see it, I will consider it. What price are you putting forward for the rights to arm all my ships? And will I be able to make it myself and take pictures of it on the dreadnought?

Tongoria is interested as it started to grow an air fleet lately. Currently my ships use 30mm CIWS gatligs and long range AA missiles that can shoot down either jets or one of your missile. Any ETA for more information?

We are happy to see that Tongoria is interested. Ofcourse we will first wait for the demand (aka my imported missiles destroy some airships in a future war) and then offer this system as a cheap last resort solution to any creditworthy nation. Against a 'fair' price ofcourse.

You might want to not post it until then, or my spies might just steal some blueprints and you may see a dreadnought with said weapon attached. Also, although your missile would be unstoppable when it splits open, I have found a few weaknesses.

How long do squid and I have to keep up this chivalry? If this was real life and we had declared war without the enemy making a move, we would have attacked already. Is Valk active at the moment, because if he isn't then I understand why he hasn't posted a strategy in a private group, but surely after several weeks he has something ready to post? Matthew, do you know anything further on this? We are pretty much ready to invite you to our private group to view our strategies. Also, the longer Valk waits, the more weeks of double production we all get, and as the entire CFF has dreadnoughts in their stats, that means a lot of airships.

It would seem neither Paladin or Valk are active at the moment...

Paladin is involved in this? As he is so inactive, I figured he wouldn't be involved.
BTW, as an admin, can you make an INF3 please, this one is way too cramped.
