Cannon construction by AdamBurn Cannon construction by AdamBurn
So in an attempt to show off how ridiculously big the ships in the game Novus Aeterno are I made this painting of a huge gauss cannon being constructed. As you can see its pretty big. Also when out of ammunition it has the option to fire an assortment of famous landmarks... That might have just been a dream I had.

Follow the games progress on Facebook, twitter and its new website.

I'm assuming it's a:
Bass cannon

The copper wiring on the exposed bits of the barrel indicate to me that this is a rail gun, so why is the interior of the barrel rifled? Besides that, this picture is pretty amazing. Keep up the good work!

More of a Gauss cannon which is slightly different form a Railgun in that it has no rails and is a cylindrical barrel, the rifling is purely aesthetic though regarding a Gauss cannon it may actually do something.

That MAC canon can rip a hole clean through a Covenant capital ship. With coordinated fire from the Athens and the Malta nothing's getting through this battlecluster in one piece.

"And here we have the Westinghouse Class-1 Gauss Super-Railgun. This baby fires a 900-ton slug of depleted uranium-titanium alloy, magnetically accelerated to 70% light-speed. The kinetic shock from the impact can gut a ship from bow to stern instantly. And if they somehow survive, the impact can throw them wildly off-course, leaving the enemy open for another salvo.

Maximum effective range is 850,000 kilometers."

Maximum effective range? It's space. There's no friction in the void. It goes on at the same speed and momentum until it hits something, whether in the next day or the next ten thousand years. Targeting range perhaps?

Great! I shudder to imagine being hit by a shell THAT big at 70% speed of light...
