Normally ships don't. That one? Depends on the ship's dimensions.

I would of thought it would be more of a problem when aiming low as that would have a greater rocking action rolling the ship over. Either way its a problem that can be solved by firing in salvos. The main thing that looks off is that in cruising position half the main guns are pointing at the bridge!

You may remember my walker design called the Cockroach. It was, exactly like it says on the tin, a walker resembling a cockroach.
It was quite absurd, both in design and armament. So I've gone and redesigned it, on Paint no less. More legs, less weapons; it is more like a walking land battleship than a comically large robotic insect.
It is still a heavily-armed walker, of course. Armed mainly with various guns and missiles, most notably SRBMs, as well as a small aircraft hangar. Deployed at the divisional level, the Cockroach operates as a mobile field base for the main command element, protecting it within its armoured, shielded hull and giving it greater offensive capability with the vehicle's arsenal. However, it is not without its drawbacks; the Mk.171 is incredibly heavy, almost 2000 tons, and its not particularly manoeuvrable, given its single-unit body construction. It is best suited for heavy assaults or static defence operations; in these situations, however, its unparalleled in its capabilities.

Model: Mk.171 "Cockroach" Mobile Field Base/Walker Artillery Platform
Crew: 15 (commander, driver, communications crew, gunnery crew)
Height: 50 meters
Length: 170 meters
Mass: 1910 tons
Powerplant: tokamak fusion reactor; 100 x MHD generators
Power output: net 10 GWe; 100 MWe per generator
Armour: boron carbide composite
Shields: 6.3 terajoule burst capacity
Armaments: 2 x 405mm Positron Cannons, impact yield 4 kilotons; 2 x Single-Gun 210mm Rifle Turrets; 2 x 20 12 x 155mm Casemate Rifles; 2 x 250mm Retractable Linear Accelerator Mortars; 10 x Free Electron Lasers, 15 megawatt output; 10 x Twin-Gun 127mm Rifle Turrets; 6 x Neutral Particle Beam Gun, 2.3 gigajoules; 4 x retractable MGM-801 "Hoe" Missile racks; 2 x 64-cell VLS module; 48 x MGM-256 "Ares" Short Range Ballistic Missile vertical launch tubes.
Troop capacity: One Army Battalion (500 soldiers) plus vehicles.

Hapsburg, I like your redesigned vehicles and I agree the 'older' Cockroach was terrible! your "Whaleshark class Regimental Landing Craft" looks terrible may I suggest a redesign. I have a request I'd like to see a land-mobile aircraft carrier and a siege Walker like the "Cockroach"?

See Ya

Um...no. I just recently designed it.
Beside, I like the ovular ship design. It really wouldn't work otherwise.

Not really. If you distribute weight to all twelve legs, and combine that with a repulsor system underneath, it can suspend itself above the ground and plod along just fine.
I'm tempted to have it that it stays suspended due to its repulsorlift and uses the legs for locomotion. Not quite sure about that solution, though.

This is my first post, have been coming on and off for a while, but only signed up recently.

These are a few weapons of the Paradigm of Mannain's Mannin Shirveish Cheerey (Mannanin Military Service), Provost Service's Penal Legions.

Gorree Sidooragh Industries Automatic Legionaries Rifle (ALR)



The ALR was designed by Gorree Sidooragh Industries solely for the newly raised Penal Legions. It has an amazing feature in being able to be activated or disabled by the Provost Guards in the event of Legionaries finding themselves with a little too much time on their hands.

It uses a Mannanin 7.62x51mm round and uses a 20-round Magazine. It has Semi-automatic and 3 round burst fire functions. It has a rate of fire of 550 rounds a minute. Muzzle velocity of 840 m/s (2,755.9 ft/s), it has an effective range of 700 metres. It has a built in Iron Sight system which can be at 100m, 300m and 500m.

The ALR does not contain magnetic accelerators that all the other Mannanin Military rifles contain and as such it does not have the same penetration ability.

Gorree Sidooragh Industries Legionnaire Support Weapon (LSW)



Shortly after the establishment of Penal Legions it was decided that 1 in every 10 Legionnaires should carry some form of support weapon. Gorree Sidooragh Industries, who designed and produce the ALR, was approached. Soon they came to the Provost Service with a cheap, cost-effective design. It was called the Legionnaire Support Weapon or LSW for short. It has the same enabler that the ALR has.


It uses a Mannanin 7.62x51mm round and uses a 100 Round Box magazine. It has Semi-automatic 3 round burst and fully automatic fire functions. It has a rate of fire of 900 Rounds a minute. Muzzle velocity of 840 m/s (2,755.9 ft/s), it has an effective range of 850 metres. It has a built in Iron Sight system which can be at 100m, 300m, 500m and 700m.

It has a quick-change barrel which must be replaced every 1,000 rounds. Like the ALR it does not have magnetic accelerators so its penetration ability is about the same as the ALR.

I want to see a tank with a bayonet fixture...

"Fix bayonets!"

"But sir, we're driving a tank."

"I said. Fix. Bayonets!"

Ooh. I quite like the first one, though it does look a bit foobly. Mostly because the stock doesn't line up quite right with the rest of the gun. You might need to adjust the size.

Anywho. Hot off the scanner:
Nuclear weapons of the Armed Forces of the Central Galactic Union. The Union military utilises modular warhead designs for maximum versatility. A single warhead type can be used in various Army, Air Force, Naval, Coast Guard, and Marines weapon platforms, ranging from artillery shells, to missiles, to guided and unguided bombs.
These are the primary warhead types, as well as common bomb systems used by the Union Army Air Forces. The B101 is the most common nuclear weapon deployed in the UAAF, housing a modified W100 warhead with a programmable yield between 1 and 300 kilotons. The B121 is a larger weapon, used in bombers and attack aircraft for strategic and theatre nuclear strike, with a modified W160 warhead providing a variable yield range of 100 kilotons to 1.5 megatons. The B205 bomb is the largest nuclear bomb used by the UAAF, deployed only on large strategic bombers, with a highly specialised warhead providing a yield range between 1 and 10 megatons.
The warheads themselves are very versatile tools. The W100 and W160 warheads were originally developed as guided MIRV weapons, mounted on ballistic missiles. They can be modified for use on the Naval "Orca" anti-ship missile for space use, as well. The W100 had programmable yield ranging between 100 and 500 kilotons; the W160 ranges between 250 kilotons and 1 megaton.

The W2, W9, and W10 are tactical warheads with various applications in missiles and artillery. The W2 is a light nuclear weapon, mountable in 210mm, 280mm, 380mm, and 405mm artillery shells as well as atomic demolition munitions; it has a yield between 10 tons and 1 kiloton. The W9 Tactical Nuclear weapon is a larger device, possessing a yield between 50 tons and 100 kilotons; it is used in larger surface-to-surface rockets, as well as in 420mm and larger artillery shells. The W10 Tactical Aerial Nuclear warhead is a specialised warhead using the same physics package as the W9, but is designed for integration into anti-ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, and nuclear air-to-air rockets.

The final weapon is the W1000 Thermonuclear Attack Vehicle. An immense re-entry vehicle, it is only mounted on the largest of missiles: the massive Zeus ICBM and the Naval "Humpback" antiship missile. The Zeus is only capable of mounting one of these, while the Humpback can carry five on a MIRV bus. The W1000 is a pure-fusion weapon, using high-energy lasers to induce an unrestrained nuclear fusion reaction, unleashing a massive amount of energy. It has a variable-yield setting, ranging between one and one hundred megatons.

How do you mean Hapsburg? It is meant to be slightly large, I based it apon the SLR (FN FAL), I could redo it with a folding stock.

No, I mean the part where the stock connects to the gun isn't large enough. It doesn't line up right. Though I like your suggested solution- a folding stock would be interesting.

EDIT: this is what I meant:

Postmodern weapons design. I only thought I'd seen everything.

Well do you think it would work the way I've described it? Roll it down mountains, explode and kill stuff. Would it be effective?

Seems more like a mad weapon design than anything greatly plausible.

But speaking of implausible weapons of madmen...
Redesign of the SCBN, or submersible nuclear carrier, utilised by the Central Galactic Union Coast Guard. Top view. Side view (both solid and cutaway) is forthcoming.
The Johann Wolfgang von Goethe class Submersible Carrier is one of the ultimate weapons in the Coast Guard's arsenal; though it more closely can be described as an amphibious assault vessel than a true carrier. With a crew of only one hundred, it can traverse the seas and deploy an amphibious special operations force of over 200 Marines plus vehicles, including amphibious mechs and tanks. Supported by an Marine Air Group of 24 aircraft, the double-strength Marine Shock Force Company can be used to great effectiveness.
Combining the design of a trimaran and a submarine, the Goethe features a broad "wingspan" to aid in surface activities by acting as a hydrostatic plane to keep the vessel stable when launching and receiving aircraft.
The vessel also includes an array of weapons; thirty ballistic missile vertical launch tubes house UGM-909 missiles, while a 64-cell strike pack VLS can deploy a variety of surface-to-air, anti-ship, and ground-attack missiles while the Goethe is surfaced. Two high-energy dual-use Laser/Maser mounts cover both forward and rear approaches, capable of being used both submerged and surfaced. Rounding out the armament is a series of four internal and four "wing-mounted" torpedo tubes, linked to the ship's main magazine stores to facilitate automatic reloading.
Acting in concert with its weapons, massive sonar, and nuclear powerplant is a limited Artificial Intelligence system, coordinating this all while also providing cyberwarfare attacks against enemy computer systems.

The Goethe class is used in expeditionary warfare and domestic Coast Guard duties. In expeditions, it is used to bolster Marine amphibious forces with an array of missile weapons, cyberwarfare capabilities, and Marine special forces. On the home front, they can police large oceanic areas due to its ability to launch massive strikes and deploy Marines in any hotspot in their area of responsibility. While not quite fulfilling the roles of CVN's in domestic defence, or LHD's in expeditions, the Goethe does provide a cheaper alternative in situations where a CVN or LHD cannot be spared, or in low-intensity operations where it would be too much to commit an entire carrier or MEU.
