Eat Railgun

Written by Vic on . Posted in

So here we see the second use of railgun technology in the comic.  In case you don’t know what a railgun is, it is a weapon that accelerates a projectile using electromagnetism as opposed to combustion. The projectile is guided down two rails and accelerated to extremely high speeds as it leaves the weapon.  I chose this technology because it is still in the experimental phase currently, and because it can be used to fire projectiles in the vaccum of space (IE without oxygen).  The people of Zoz use this technology extensively for their sidearms and on weapons platforms for their ships.  It can also be used to send probes or cargo over long distances without the use of propellant.
