        wait until he works out how much energy is imparted by a Rail-gun slug then compares it to a bullet...

        Add in the above is a single shot weapon as the Rails will get trashed with each shot.

          Fortunately the scientists at S.INC have perfected the technology and the Aggressor Class MBT serving with the Tabletown Army features a fully-operational railgun system.

          Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

              To include members of the feline persuasion as gunners - the better to omit costly and cumbersome "night vision" equipment !

                    5th its not a joke. The gun is in Athens, Georgia. The ball in each barrel were to be joined by a piece of chain and used as and AP weapon at closer ranges.

                    Technology did not allow both barrels to be fired simultaneously. This mean that the linked projectiles could not perform properly and were as dangerous to your'n as their'n.

                          Not the most brilliant of ideas, considering the different burning rates of common fuses of the day.

                              Shame the Paris gun never survived. That truly was a technical marvel.
