Funny enough the secondary guns on the heavy cruiser design I've been working on has a total force of 2,094.375107 kilotons of energy, that's kind of ridiculous for a shell the size of a flipping car. Which there are six of these guns on the ship I've designed, 2 X 3 turret guns on staboard and portside.

The main guns apparently spit out 75,182.675086 megatons per shot, which is absurdly high in terms of firepower.

Umm, what's the total energy output on Loroi warships, per gun?

hi hi

75 gigatons isn't that big. It's only just shy of annihilating 2 tons of antimatter with 2 tons of matter. Not quite up to glassing the entire surface of a planet in a single shot. :lol:

You know, I don't know if we've actually discussed weapon energy output. The Wave-Loom Device may be in that range, but most shipboard weapons are probably much, much less. To paraphrase a certain game, Sir Isaac Newton is a deadly son of a bitch.

"So, you turned a mountain into a crater? Pshaw, a mere trifle." :P

Jeez I think I'll have to reserve this level of firepower for a capital sized warships, not the a heavy cruiser. I think I'll draw my guns on a different scale for those ships.

Two large forward prow mounted guns and a pair of smaller guns afixed along a rotating arm control, loaded with 2 ton projectiles, they'll do the trick alright, at least in terms of matching ships of similar weight and size.

The standard sized UN Earth Federation warship would probably need to be around 458 meters, two pronged helix hull design of 181 meters and a width of 158, crewed by 980 personnel including marines. Powered by mutli-fusion induction drives, total output I'm still thinking about. So realistically, I feel maxiing out the firepower on this would put it around a few megatons at most, since projectiles any larger would exceed most ships in science fiction in terms of sheer firepower to size of ships.

I'm not even counting Star Trek or Stargate, they've got excuses beyond belief there.
