Dynamic multi-barreled Ion wave cannon by JB1992 Dynamic multi-barreled Ion wave cannon by JB1992
Dynamic multi-barreled Ion wave cannon.


manufacturer: Eramo Empire Heavy Arsenals.
projectile type: stabilized Ionized plasma. 
Projectile TOP speed: 88% Speed of light.
Fire speed: 230 rpm
power source: Zero point flux reactor.
Weapon arcs: 90 UP, 360 TURN,

Ion wave cannons are the main weapon of choice in the Eramo space navy, having used it in thousands of wars around the galaxy.
the design of the cannons has been altered many times to ultimately become super efficient an powerful. the latest designs feature multiple barrels.

One multi barrel cannon is made up out of 61 individual cannons, the dual version has a total of 122 ion wave barrels packed together. this makes it a fearsome weapon.
the cannon barrels can be set to fire in sync or in a given pattern or just fire individually. Usually the cannons main AI computer decides how to shoot a target,
it can calculate and predict a targets move and make a plan of engagement shooting at multiple predicted outcomes.
The cannon can also be used as a flank caster, multiple cannons in a battery shoot rapid nets of Ion bolts casting a wall of super heated Ion plasma bolts.

Model made in: Google sketchup 8.
Rendered in: Kerkythea.
Render Time: 2 hours 48 min 149 frames on (Intel Core I7).
After effects added in: RW-paint, ( layout watermark)
Total time spent making: Approximately 2,5 day.

 Do they also used force fields to direct the individual beams? I'd imagine that would make it for a more effective precision fire and point defensive weapon as well.

Well this is an old weapon not really in use by the Eramon space navy anymore, they are replaced by this monster:
This version however is best described as an shotgun, not really that accurate at long distance but perfect for Close in range against bombers and such, the energy fired from this obsolete weapon
decreases over distance very fast, but at close in range the energy fired can be abnormal high, it's this given that makes it work, basically don't get to close to this weapons range for it to obliterate you,
although, this is exactly why it's decommissioned by the navy and only used by civilian crafts as Anti boarding flak weapon, (the thing space pirates tend to do,..)

the Type H4 (the replacement of this weapon) However uses far more advanced technology, in that it can direct the beams by use of plasma field manipulation,
this also makes it possible to shoot through an active plasma shield of the ship, whereas normally a ship could only engage without shields up, also the 
beams per barrel can be individually directed (or timed per shot) via an muzzle coil, this coil changes the the direction a singe beam Ion travels, that means it can direct 244 ion waves individually per shot,
and those cannons have an idle
340 rpm, well you get the picture, also the cannons are not mean as flak, in-fact they use enhanced targeting algorithmics to pre-determine a targets location in space
and anticipate fire upon those spots, and every cannon uses it's own targeting module, and share data alike over a network, if parts of this network are crippled or if a cannon is not linked up with the network
for whatever reason it still has the computing power to engage on it's own, see they don't use one singe targeting radar and sensor or multiple scattered around the ship, the cannon itself has the module,
making every cannon of this type on a ship have an individual advanced radar electronic suite, that works together in hive or can go on its own data,...

Here's and example of how it looks in a fight, (the enemy was obliterated at the end of this battle (this was an role play battle) with another nation that used Tachyon weapons
basically one of the most powerful weapons out there) anyways the Eramon ships are basically Floating heavily AA weapon pontoons, as there ships are literally scattered with tons of those weapons 
and that's just the outside, as the Type H4 has an retractile system that can store 2 or 3 of those weapons in the hull, meaning if one is destructed it replaces itself up to 3 times over, and dumps the damaged
H4 base in space. And given the ships have a three or two layer structural armored hull and an deeply buried internal bridge, makes it an impossible ship to fight a one VS one battle with, in-fact
they are classified to take on two or three enemy ships on there own, but yeah the Eramon Empire is pretty much a super military power not to be messed with.
