A Certain Railgun by MonkeydanceGuy A Certain Railgun by MonkeydanceGuy
It's not some chick who shoots electrified quarters at people, but still pretty bad-ass. The NEXF-001 "Archangel" equipped with a votage-capacitated railgun (or "Gundam-killer", as I'd like to call it) and a shield. This mass driver use two static capacitors to build up static electricity with a enormous voltage, and when a round is loaded between the rails, the voltage turns into current electricity, and the creation of magnetic force behind the projectile launches it with a muzzle velocity of 4-5 Km/s, while the speed isn't all that impressive, as the US Military already has a prototype that does 3-4 Km/s, the projectile this thing shoots is about the size of a mini-cooper.

I love the concept...based on real-world tech.

One of the best gundam 3d models that I have ever seen great job, and loving the Reference to Misaka :D

thank you very much, although I don't think this is one of my best 3D posts.

Railgunsssssss >:3

*instafaves*

Also, considering the Railgun bullet is the size of a small car, wouldn't that make it pretty inefficient against smaller/ similar sized foes?
And how long would it take to reload that beast anyways D:?

reload isn't a problem, as this particular design has a bolt-action breach, but it's recharging the capacitors that takes forever. Also, the round is a little big for past-paced combat, but excellent for sniping or bringing down ships and stuff.

So it's a long ranged anti-warship type unit?
it makes sense considering it's specs.

Personally, I'd have two railguns instead of one,
tone down their size a bit, and give them extra
addons so that they work well in melee as well as
ranged combat, but that's just me. And sometimes
it's more fun to fire off a big shot and watch the
catastrophic damage unfold :D

for that sort of thing, I've built this "add-on" for it. [link] Sort of an "anti-everything" equipment

You could go the mass effect route and turn the rail-gun into a mini-mass driver--allowing the railgun to sheer off the necessary material from the mass-driver block and have the magnetic acceleraotrs compensate for wind, gravity, coriolis effect, eeven target hardness.

Although, I think that tech is hyper-advanced--even for Gundams.

Hmm interesting concept, but for a world with "lasers" that go less than the speed of light I can only imagine how a railgun would perform. Nicely done though

True, but lasers, even the most high-density soild-state ones, can be deflected or weakened by some kind of polarized coating, and realistically, lack penetrating power to deal with heavy armor. For anything-penetrating properties, a semi-molten tungsten-ceremic slug travelling at 5000 meters per seconds seemed like an adequate solution, although cool-down, reload/recharge time, and ammunition is still a big issue.

That and in gundam they move quite fast, also while in space gravity of any nearby planetoids would deviate the bullet path, and if they were to fire a laser at the round it would be vaporized. That and with some gundams they are made with "gundanium" or some other type of unobtanium-style metal (lol) which can take "any" type of conventional firepower. Also a polarized coating would only be effective for so long, as demonstrated in-show. Lastly there are those fewer gundams which utilize an energy based sheild, which may or may not be able to defend against a round shot through a rail gun. Another idea would be to accelerate a missile (without a motor) at the target and cause concussive damage upon detonation. As shortwaves are extraordinarily difficult to defend against, and are highly capable of killing a human being piloting a gundam/MA/MS through sheer shock power.

I guess you're think at a way more high-tech level... my mobile suits are supposed to be first-generation, still running on compact uranium fission reactors...

the wireframe of the clap trap are only 2 ore 3 mb and it will be a hell of a work ^^;

Actually, a model of just the outside armor covering isn't all that huge (about 50 mB), it's mostly all the infrastructure underneath that's generating all the extra polygons.

but (still dreaming :) ) i guess a lower poly version of this would be the sickest model of all time :D

Who knows, if I have time, I might compress the base model and publish the wireframe DXF for people to play with.
