Who ever made this is ******* awesome.
You deserve the credit I cannot find.

Look at my gatling gun. This is the kind of gun they used to put PLANES on. It wasn' t a case of ‘Oh, we got this jet fighter, it
kinda needs something besides missiles and bombs and **** , let' s strap this thing on'. NO. It was a case of a guy making a
gun SC) awesome, that he just stepped back, and said, "This **** needs to fly'. And everyone else is like, 'You cant make a
gun fly!'. And the first guy is all like, **** you, yes I can. I will strap a PLANE to this GUN.' And everyone' s like, ‘You mean
strap the gun to a plane? And the first guy is like, Tlo, man. I am strapping the plane to the gun. The plane is an AC) .'
And then everyone' s minds were blown. Like, there was some serious mind blowing going on there. Ears were bleeding.

4,200 rounds a second, at 3,500 feet per second. Each one of those rounds weighs a kilo. This is the best way to say **** you. EVER.
User avatar #109 to #1 - Konigsteiger (09/08/2012) [-]
....it's definitely not 4,200 rounds per second, that's how many rounds per minute it fires. 4,200 rps would be 252,000 rpm, which is unheard of for even a 6 barreled weapon.
#2 to #1 - techketzer (09/07/2012) [-]
Except for a 32 Megajoule railgun maybe.

I dunno man, you don't the NOISE with one of those. As cool as it is.

"you don't the NOISE with one of those."

did you accidentally your sentence?
User avatar #4 to #3 - techketzer (09/07/2012) [-]
Are you kidding me?
You see that string-like thing left to the projectile?
That's a lens. ******* air compressed so dense it starts refracting light!
I really don't understand what could be more awesome that that.

Oh, and that fireball behind the "bullet"?
That's not fire. Just air and friction.
Damn.
User avatar #5 to #4 - sonsofsol (09/07/2012) [-]
Oh it's fast, it's got some awesome tech behind it.
With the shape of the projectile it is the best way to fling a spanner in the works.
It saddens me that they're just gonna stick it on littoral cruisers though. Each Gau comes with a free warthog.

Actually, the "fire" is plasma...o.o
User avatar #64 to #4 - mynamemax (09/08/2012) [-]
its not friction from the air its friction after busting through a wall to hit a plate of metal.
User avatar #114 to #64 - techketzer (09/09/2012) [-]
No, it is actually friction in air.
User avatar #125 to #114 - mynamemax (09/09/2012) [-]
also heres something that you'll like
www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1yYuMgpHkA

also there is studies being done on force fields made of cold and hot plasma dont know where the clip is but it ******* awsome
User avatar #122 to #114 - mynamemax (09/09/2012) [-]
trust me on this. That is the picture of it leaving the chamber of the rail gun. Massive amounts of heat are created by the electricity flowing through the rails, as well as by the friction of the projectile leaving the device. The heat created by this friction itself can cause thermal expansion of the rails and projectile, further increasing the frictional heat. Yes air does generate friction on the projectile and thus creates heat, its not enough to generate plasma.
User avatar #123 to #122 - mynamemax (09/09/2012) [-]
and yes it is plasma behind the projectile
User avatar #124 to #123 - mynamemax (09/09/2012) [-]
and i was wrong about the wall
User avatar #15 to #2 - Mortuus (09/08/2012) [-]
So bad ass you don't even need a warhead.
User avatar #113 to #15 - techketzer (09/09/2012) [-]
That's the beauty of kinetic energy.
We can destroy everything there is, no exceptions. We just have to hit it hard enough.
User avatar #115 to #113 - Mortuus (09/09/2012) [-]
Kinetic energy, because **** that wall and the internal organs of the people behind it.
User avatar #116 to #115 - techketzer (09/09/2012) [-]
Hell yeah, but that's small fry.

We could detroy planets. We could kill even stars!
Kinetic energy is the means to total domination of this universe.
User avatar #117 to #116 - Mortuus (09/09/2012) [-]
It's a 'clean nuke' but it doesn't make it any less scary to think about.
User avatar #118 to #117 - techketzer (09/09/2012) [-]
On the contrary. Imagine such a projectile bearing a nuclear warhead, too.
Overkill is the best kill, afterall.
User avatar #119 to #118 - Mortuus (09/09/2012) [-]
No, the idea of the nuclear bomb is a dumb one. Sure it saved countless lives and time by stopping the war in the pacific but if we could have realized what it was capable of...Well I can only hope we, as a race, would have shuttered at the idea.
There's no reason anyone on earth should have the power to decimate the semi-civilized world in a press of a button.

Sorry to the long-winded response, I feel very strongly about the subject.

(Nukes Suck)
User avatar #120 to #119 - techketzer (09/09/2012) [-]
Hell yes they do. Setting one off in our only biosphere should be punished by death of everyone involved.

You can't ignore their technical potential however. In case of a large asteroid about to collide with our planet for example, at the moment our best and probably only hope is to shower the thing with nukes until the only thing that falls to earth is radioactive dust.
Still sucks.
Giant railguns would be so much better.
User avatar #121 to #120 - Mortuus (09/09/2012) [-]
A magnetic cannon would be more useful at shooting a comet off-course.

Sadly however, scientists have done simulations and fusion bombs would just cause the comet to chip pieces of itself off, not to mention we lack the adaptive targeting solutions we'd need to even manage an impact and detonation on one before the warhead was crushed by the comet.

ive never really understood what a railgun does? like how does it work, what's so special about it, and how much damage can it do?
User avatar #27 to #23 - heartlessrobot (09/08/2012) [-]
It uses magnetic rails to "sling" quarter ton rounds faster than the speed of sound. The picture above isn't a rail gun, since theres no explosion like that when it's fired.
User avatar #28 to #27 - heartlessrobot (09/08/2012) [-]
I stand corrected, that is a railgun, that's just plasma from superheated air.
User avatar #111 to #27 - techketzer (09/09/2012) [-]
That's not an explosion in the picture, it's a stream of plasma that developes because of the air being superheated solely by the projectile's friction.

So yes, I assure you you're looking at a railgun here.
User avatar #82 to #27 - redrex ONLINE (09/08/2012) [-]
so using magnets, it's launched a very big bomb faster than the speed of sound? is it quiet when it's fired since it's not using any sort of explosion to propel it, and by quiet i mean there's no loud bang?
User avatar #112 to #82 - techketzer (09/09/2012) [-]
It doesn't fire giant bombs. A railgun surely could, but the modern experimental prototypes typically fire projectiles weighing a few kilograms.
Also, while super-sonic speeds is technically correct, it just does not do the railgun any justice. Speed of sound is 343 m/s, a railgun easily achieves 2000-3500 m/s, some even 7000 m/s.

And no, they are sure as hell not quiet. First of all, you have the sonic boom of the projectile and then the plasma stream as seen in the picture that sounds like a thunderclap in itself.
Here's a video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=y54aLcC3G74
Enjoy. :)
User avatar #105 to #82 - heartlessrobot (09/08/2012) [-]
Well, there's no ignition, but the friction of it moving through the air creates a massive explosion anyway.
User avatar #106 to #105 - redrex ONLINE (09/08/2012) [-]
oh yeah, i'm an idiot, if it's moving faster than the speed of sound it would create a sonic boom, i can't believe i asked that...

HOW TO BUILD AN A-10
1. get a gun,
"hows this?"
bigger gun
"what about this one?"
still need a bigger one
"this one is huge!"
BIGGER GODDAMNIT!
"jesus! its the size of a small car!"
good, step 2, slap that bitch on a solid steel bathtub
"like this?"
NO!, on the bottom you moron!
"but where are we going to put the landing gear?"
idk? off to the side?, gun more important
step 3, add some wings
"so it can fly, right?"
NO! so it can CARRY MORE BOMBS!
step 4, attach a jet engine
you know what? buck it, add another one... for good measure
"this doesn't even look like a plane"
Who cares what it looks like whens its descending from the heavens spouting 30mm death at god knows how many per minute?

The A10 is actually build around the Gau 8. I think some one who worked on it described it as a flying Gatling gun.
Oh it also shoots depleted uranium.

Little known fact, because the A-10 only has one seat, it's harder to train people to fly it.

other planes have two seats which means the teacher can sit in the back and correct critical mistakes the student makes to avoid crashing the plane.

Not in the A-10 tho. they fly in pairs and talk to each other instead. this leads to hilarious crashes such as these two fine examples:
1.) plane is upside down. pilot can't tell because she's disoriented. looks at altitude marker. "gotto go up." pulls up. CRASH.
2.) this one's my personal favorite. but it requires a little extra info. In the A-10 there are in cabin cameras that record a pilots action because.... well **** i dunno. either way, the light that says when the tape is full just so happens to be the same light for "eject" (this was before digital technology). Tape fills up during flight: Student bails out of a perfectly good airplane.

Just as CochonDanseur said they have a good amount of experience in the A-10 flight sim before going for a flight and before they get to their flying squadron. they fly **** ton of hours in training aircraft at flight school.
User avatar #88 to #78 - CochonDanseur (09/08/2012) [-]
can't they just use flight simulators?
User avatar #102 to #88 - areo0420 (09/08/2012) [-]
they do, but the fact of the matter is that a simulator and actually being in a plane are two different things. like it or not, no simulator can give the full experience. the only way to do that is to actually fly the plane.
