No, because there is no credible railgun design that yet exists that also fits onto a ship.

And God help you if Colo sees you bringing up the one from Revenge of the Fallen....

Thank you for your help. I was wondering because I know we are at least testing with them in real life. Thank you again. :lol:

When I saw that Railgun in the film I thought it was the AGS. However, I didn't get a good look at it since it was bootleg quality and I din't really know what an AGS looked like back then. I saw a screencap of it an it looked cool, but considering you said "God help you if Colo sees you bringing up the one from Revenge of the Fallen...." I'm guessing that this weapon is not even a prototype or design concept and is pure fantasy.

So Cool but impractical?

No, is very real. Railgun of course as weapon, but:

Actually, as far as plausible railgun designs go, it's a hell of a lot better than what I was expecting.

He's wanting to build this CV/BB that's 3000 feet long and it's got like 10 railguns on it with a runway that goes through the ship (enclosed), and is all run by computers. His country uses laser rifles and pistols, he has a billion nukes on it's tiny island. I recommended him to this site so he could get feedback on his designs.

That type of ship is actually pretty feasible - if you pump the top 10 GDPs into making it, then wait 50 years at least.

Yeah, but can a 30 million population base support that? And a billion nukes? I don't think so.
