If you have never been on a ship that fired it's main weapons at the same time, you have never lived. It's incredible, the ship tips as it moves sideways through the water, the entire structure vibrates, and the water directly around it jumps and shakes like a crater for just a fraction o a second. And then downrange you can see the target(in the ship I was on, the target was a scuttled ship for an artificial reef) just go up in smoke and flames. Truly an awe inspiring experience.

mmhmm. mounting a railgun in the next few years.
User avatar #165 to #162 - charagrin (01/27/2013) [-]
Never read about that. makes me curious though what it's going to use for a targeting system. Extreme range with a rail gun on a ship rocking in the ocean is going to create some interesting targeting systems methinks.
User avatar #173 to #165 - davidispissed (01/27/2013) [-]
you should see the new deck housing for it. full composite, ready to house a gun the full length of the ship.

so far thinking laser guidance and dvanced computer algorhythms based on coriolus effect and rotation.

Wind and pressure will surely figure into it at well. For a normal round going a few thousand feet a second, wind is a problem. But for a round going mach 10(11,500 FPS) even a small pressure difference as it travels would equate to hitting a cement wall, it would not stop the round instantly, but it would steal velocity and alter direction. Not to mention ocean spray, mist, rain, etc. I am curious how they will solve that, but haven't found anything yet. We will see what the next few years gives us I guess.

That is the USS Iowa, the first ship of the Iowa class Battleships. She was state of the art back in WW2 and served the United States through every conflict all the way up to the 90's. She was made when pure brute force won battles, those 16" guns could fire 2,700 lb shells 24 miles within 250m of its target, which isn't bad since it could destroy everything within that 250m radius.

God she is beautiful.

This doesn't seem to be a very effective propulsion system

User avatar #159 to #102 - lordofthesea ONLINE (01/27/2013) [-]
what's left?

yfw you realize there is no "left" on a ship.
Port, starboard, fore and aft bro
User avatar #171 to #159 - robertelee (01/27/2013) [-]
yes i understand just didnt know which was which
User avatar #172 to #171 - lordofthesea ONLINE (01/27/2013) [-]
Port = left = even (number of letters), also remembered by both having four letters.
starboard = right.
fore = forward, aft is behind

i have no ******* idea what your talking about
User avatar #134 to #133 - arstya (01/27/2013) [-]
Metric system? You were just talking about it.
User avatar #135 to #134 - robertelee (01/27/2013) [-]
what (just feet) are you talking about
User avatar #136 to #135 - arstya (01/27/2013) [-]
Whatever system the USA uses (I don't know the name.) has a unit of measurement called a foot. 12 inches.
User avatar #169 to #136 - robertelee (01/27/2013) [-]
imperial or (standard) mearument
#154 to #136 - ihaveakeyboard (01/27/2013) [-]
for customary in some places
#149 to #136 - anonymous (01/27/2013) [-]
It's called Imperial
#119 to #118 - isititis (01/27/2013) [-]
whoa, calm down, it was only a joke on america being one of the very few countries to not adopt the metric system. no need to get upset.
#120 to #119 - Metric (01/27/2013) [-]
I still hold a grudge about it too.
User avatar #99 - DoktorHax (01/27/2013) [-]
interesting fact; if you were on deck at that point, you would be a sack of mush, and no longer on that deck, seeing as you would have been sucked right of of it. dunno how far you would go, but certainly in excess of 100 meters.
