Auto Turret by MeckanicalMind Auto Turret by MeckanicalMind
This started as one of my sketch sketches like some of the previous images. You can see the struts and base are still very loose and not really defined.

I imagine its a remote controlled auto turret, a cross between something from Aliens and Metal Gear Solid.

I also imagine the small cylinder in front of the ammo cart is a part of a shock absorbing system that uses the wait of the ammo to help stabilize the gun while shooting, thus it can shoot faster and more accurately.

Have a good day!

Hi there, I hope I didn't hit a nerve or anything but I hope you don't mind that I modeled this turret for fun. Here is the link and I hope ou will allow me to complete it. I was searching for your da page for a while now and I finally found it.

A helluva lot better than what the Colonial Marines had.

My guess it is in the .50 caliber or the 20mm range. But if you whant more ammo, then make it a railgun and OUCH. It could be used for AA and AP. Anti-aircraft and Anti-personel.

If made into a railgun it would be anti-everything, no vehicle on this earth can stand up to a 12mm slug fired at speeds in excess of mach 10.

mach 10 shit thee recoil would be massive. now keep it under mach 1, just like a M-60. However the ammo count will be unbeliveable.

The recoil for a railgun isn't as massive as you'd think. sure it would still have recoil, but it would be a lot less than the equivalent chemical propelled shell, you'd have more to worry about trying to keep a railgun cool than taking the recoil it produces

Well yes. But remeber it is the ammo count that counts. instead of carrying say 30 rounds in the ammo clip, it could be considerible to carry 90 or 120 rounds per magazine. M-16 style magazine.
