Also, I figured that, for those who haven't yet read this, I'd put herein my perspective on technology on NS. It will, I hope, provide some food for thought, if nothing else. The crux of the matter, as far as I am able to ascertain from my limited experience, is definitional, more than anything else...

Fixed that for you.


And to answer your questions, no, generally not. And if someone puts them close enough for you to hit with ground-launched missiles, they're doing it wrong.

Apologies to all for my late response. I work hard, and long, and have also just moved house, with all the ancillary issues pertaining to internet connection contained therein. That being said, I'd first like to thank Yohannes for drawing this issue, though I use the term a little broadly, which I t...

The second biggest consideration to keep in mind, in my opinion. Penetration is directly related to the force you can apply to the target in question. speaking of this, can you just make a tank round that's basically a needle? Yes... but you do have to have enough after-armour effect to be worth so...

Lyran and VMK tanks, from what I know, go to wankish levels of protection and firepower. Yohannes even said that himself. This actually quite offends me.

I don't think bullpups offer such a staggering amount of advantages over conventional layout firearms. That being said, the technology isn't 'under-utilized' because surprisingly, R&D of such technology costs this crazy thing called money. The major powers have their own programs, or if not the...

Yuko, main advantage is detecting and tracking opposing fleets and/or aircraft from well outside their engagement envelope, so that you can hit them, while they cant hit you. Very simplistically put.

None of the above issues cannot be solved or mitigated. Will take some electronic work, but eminently do-able. As is the underlying point. Whether or not it looks silly worries me far less.

So six arms, each around 200 meters long, 208 meter beam. They'll hang about 60 meters off each side of the ship and take a full third of the centerline length. 50-odd meters beyond the edge of the main hull over the waterline sounds about right. Supporting structures for the array =/= ship structu...

Hexagonal array. Six arms, each about half a nostradamus arm, give or take. Arguably worth fleshing out more in the write up. But the proof of concept is shown here, the details are another point.

TBN, when we explain something for the purpose of establishing that its doable according to conventional technology and collective humanity's knowledge, for use in this text-based roleplay game, there's only so far I/we are going to go.

The point I was making is that its easier with three arms of antennas than with six. Fewer variables. But you know that, TBN. I have long argued that its doable, and whenever I explain how any particular element fits the criteria, the goalposts shift.

Its getting highly irritating.
