C.O.P. signature weapon
Join to comment
 Group admin 
Hi guys, sorry I haven't been active lately, I lost internet for a few months, but I've got it back now.

I was just thinking: we should make a name for all our standard ballistic cannons, I mean like the UNSC have their MAC guns, and High Velocity cannons on their Scorpion tanks. I think we should make up a name for our own sort of ballistic cannon(s).

Here are my ideas: ARC: short for Air-friction Resistant Cannon, So the projectiles launched from this cannon are designed to have minimal air friction, making them hit targets just as hard 20 miles away as a target 100 yards away. I was thinking this could be our standard ballistic tank-mounted weapon. I'll add more ideas if I can think of any.

So what do you think?

Cool idea!

Maybe ship-mounted cannons could be ZGMAC (Zero Gravity Magnetic Acclerator Cannon).

Actually, the signature weapon is still our own version of the MAC. Because naming it that is copyright infringement, Sammy and I hammered this out a while ago:

Magnetic Accelerator Projectile Driver. The MAPD.

Magnetically Accelerated Projectile Driver works too.

Hmmm, I think you could change the 'MAC' bit, sounds to halo-ish. Keep the 'ZG' though!

So, can this weapon be small enough to be mounted on tanks?

If you have a big tank. The rail gun the US Navy tested took as much energy to fire as Chicago uses in 6 months. And COP railguns are much more powerful. So you're gonna need a lot of power.

well, if thats the case, can we make a lighter ballistic cannon? I mean, you see a lot of COP vehicles with small guns and cannons on it. I was just hoping to put a name to them...

Call them what you want. Doesn't matter all that much.

We also have PlasmX, Ian's plasma company. And yes, these ones actually are feasible, because they accelerate the plasma to near the speed of light to make it into a functioning weapon. Good for space and anti-armor.

Ok, so can I call the cannons on my new COP tank that I'm working on: ARC guns?

And since the Limitation Pact is intended to apply to projectiles, and since plasma is an ionized gas, they're legal.

Mainly because they can't go on and on and on and on and on and really mess up somebody's day a million years in the future.

The Coalition has millions of arms manufacturing and weapons develpment corporations, more likely than not.

I seriously doubt they'd agree to ditch their trademark Deathbore Cannons (TM) and Doommaker Paininflictor brand rotary railguns for some government catch-all term.

So what do you think of the A.R.C.? If no one's got a name for a standard small tank cannon, I think I'll use the A.R.C.

I like ARC, but the words themselves oughta be changed. I'm hoping that most of your cannons are "air resistant" anyways, so how bout Automatic Rotary Cannon?

Yeah i like that, how about... Automatic Rail Cannon, or Auto Repulse Cannon.... Any other ideas?
