Beschreibung

A brief preface lays out purpose and outlook on cannons and guns in the future. Chapter 1 proposes a star-shape barrel formation for guns in the future, using un-tapered barrels but supported by rings and triangular struts between the star flanges. We discuss segmented guns, setup and breakdown and related matters. These matters include supporting the long barrels by spars, cables, types of ammunition. Chapter 2 goes into accelerants and what the problems are and possible solution. I even posit a dry ice charge rapidly heated to produce a very fast airgun ejected projectile. Chapter 3 considers the future of big guns and guns in general from the point of view of sensing devices. We restate the preface point that guns have a future and will triumph over missiles in the end. Big guns may even launch space payloads after the Jules Verne fashion. I have discussed these matters in other essays of mine as well.
