The Gravit Cannon by JB1992 The Gravit Cannon by JB1992
The Gravit cannon.


manufacturer: Eramo Empire Heavy Arsenals.
type of weapon: Kinetic
Projectile TOP speed: warp 1
Fire speed: 5 rpm
power source: main Zero point flux reactor.
Weapon arcs: 90 UP, 360 TURN, (slow)

Graviton cannons are a kinetic type weapon and are most effective and super destructive at long range.
The cannons shoot a beam warped graviton particles. The particles on impact unleash a
Furious Bombardment of Subspace gravitronic implosions. Crackling most hulls in a instance.
Small ships ranging up to 800meter are mostly totally disintegrated by the beam,
Leaving a package of Crumbled material the size of a shoe box…


The gravit cannon uses a material that Produces High amounts of super symmetric Gravitons.
The graviton material bears close resemblance to exotic particles like tachyons yet it’s more
stable and has a higher kinetic energy footprint.  The gravitons are super accelerated using a
rail of super conductive magnon crystals. The magnon crystals produce a super dense magnetic-
quantum flux.(The crystals will glow yellowish / orange In this process of charging.)
The Graviton is injected into the barrel and vastly accelerated by the magnetic quantum flux.
An average beam lasts five seconds. The kinetic damage of a graviton beam is huge,
the longer the fire distance the more damage it does, Though in close range combat it’s 
not an efficient weapon.

The Gravit Cannons functions in a similar way to a Mass Drivers and energy cannon.
You can basically say it’s a hybrid of both. First the graviton particles itself needs to be created.
This is done by two graviton reactors inside the turret mount. The gravitons are created by super
accelerating gravitronic-306 atoms in a fusion type reactor. The created gravitons are stored in a
magnetic containment unit until fire signal is given, the gravitronic-306 rods which are used for
the making of gravitronic-306 atoms are stored inside the ship in armored compartments.

The Gravitons are accelerated in the barrel using magnon crystals,  
Magnon crystals produce a super dense magnetic quantum flux, magnon crystals are Magnonics,
this is a type of magnet, that is far more efficient than a normal super magnet. 
Magnonics are used to create a super quantum flux For super-acceleration*.
(In this form of acceleration space time wrapping or warping occurs)
The gravitons are thus accelerated to warp speed. 
The gravitons are fired in a beam of five seconds. 
light is distorted along the beams edge*  (this is the effect of space warping) 
the gravitonic beam travels faster than light, yet it can be seen as a beam because 
of the space-time warping.

Effectiveness and Use:

Graviton Cannons are used as capital weapons and mounted on heavier type ships.
They take the role of being the Eramons navies primary and most effective long range weapon system.
Being extremely potent at long range against both shields and armour the graviton cannons low rate of fire
Limits its effectiveness however one beam can deliver serious destructive power and can easily crumble and
blow open heavily armored hulls, and as well as drain enemy shields very vast.

The cannons has a slow rate of fire and also a slow rate of targeting (moving).
They’re not effective against small fast moving vessels. And can easily overheat.
The cannon mounts two multi barrelled Ion wave cannons along the sides, they function as AA.

Model made in: Google sketchup 8.
Rendered in: Kerkythea.
Render Time: 8 hours 48 min 149 frames on (Intel Core I7). 
After effects added in: RW-paint, ( layout watermark)
Total time spent making: Approximately 3 days.

according to your own design 360 radial is physically impossible. Unless of course the art is so incredibly inaccurate that it must be discarded as fantasy.

Ow I forgot to mentioned it >,<, The cannon has to be fitted inside a specially made 360 radial mount XD, (I'm using it ATM for a ship, but the placements are different for every location on the vessel.)

like a ball turret of sorts?
JB1992 Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I was thinking magnetically (levitating) but I'm currently doing a revision of this cannon and it now has a turntable mount placed under it so it will be able to simply turn.

I'm still having issues with it mechanically. did you mean 350 horizontal plane or 360 spherical? I can clearly see it's likely to have 360 horizontal.
JB1992 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think I've misunderstood what you meant (I was thinking you meant the horizontal plane),  I recently saw the mistake in the "Weapon arcs: 360 UP , 360 TURN (slow)" it had to be: 90 Up and 360 turn (slow), :XD:

OOOH there it is!  :D I'm rather sure I probably made a bad guess somewhere as well, but at least it's clarified.
JB1992 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, thanks to you! =D

Brutally badass! :D

Thanks =D
