450mm Super Gun

design by Lewis Roberts


The perfect weapon for your friendly neighborhood TED. The Super Gun is designed as a terror weapon. At its maximum range it is fairly inaccurate. But if firing at an enemy country, the shell will still land somewhere, and hopefully on something important. Examples of such attacks are the SCUD Missle attacks during the Iran-Iraq Gulf War (Pre-Stellar Terran History).

The weapon was designed with Fire Fusion & Steel.
