Partly depends on the Mech's capcity for recoil mitigation, and it's extant ground-pressure... Low velocity HE-lobbers could get pretty big in the bore. Would Semi work then, but full auto available if really needed? Also, what about the machine guns and smoke 'nades? If it's a big-bore recoilless ...

I mean it could be anywhere from 40mm to 155mm depending on how large that mech is. I don't see anything to scale so there is no indication of its size... I would geusstimate about 30-40ft.

In a manner not dissimilar to most constructions, the exact details of every nut and bolt are not something I have gone into. But having an appropriate length to beam to draft ratio was something I checked, as well as keeping the engine proportions and reactor output/throughput within tolerances. TB...

More to the point, putting factories underground makes production (and future renovation in the factories) more expensive. Certain factories (like major aircraft factories) are borderline impossible to put underground. If the fear of your enemy's cruise missiles has caused your civilization to move...

So as far as SPAAGs... How much radar-guided and how much nonradar is ideal? Non-radar SPAAGs are not susceptible to SEAD ARMs. Radar guided have the advantage of well.. Using radar. Gingeska uses both 23mm non-radar SPAAGs and 57mm non-radar SPAAGs. Should these be used in concert? As in a SEAD ai...

And well worth spending a few more bunker-busting cruise missiles on. That being said, factories as targets is a product of flawed strategic thinking. This is no longer WW2, where production during warfare is likely to be a meaningful contribution to the conflict. Once a war has begun, the factorie...

It's only a serious threat if SPAAGs are directly attached to, say, protect the factory I targeted. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semiconductor_fabrication_plant Fabs require many expensive devices to function.

I don't need to 'hug the earth to evade enemy SAMs', because losing missiles to enemy SAMs is preferable to losing aircraft to enemy SAMs. 90% of the world's population lives within 300 km of a coastline. Only in NS can this sort of tomfoolery prevail. Honestly, if you send aircraft in to close in ...

BGM-109 Tomahawks have an operational range of 2,800km. NS-equivalent weapons (such as the LY589 Hellion or LA-1330 Contrado) get a whisker more, at about 3,000km.

Isn't that the whole reason the Longsword is so big? So that it can just barely cram a OTH radar set into it? Thats at least is what Lyras claims anyways, though I have seen that it would be rather hard to cram said OTH radar into the Longsword. Yep, that's his explanation. He still needs another s...

It does seem oddly unjust that the Raider answer to this issue is 'do things which participate in our mechanic, so as to stop us if you can'.

Just more food for thought, if confessors can't trust that their priest will keep their confidence, then they won't go. Then the (theoretical) voice of conscience won't be heard. Thus, nothing is gained, and a social good is lost.
