So how does that AG round work? Is it made from some material that is negatively affected by gravitons? Like when normal matter is affected by particles (or photons), force is excerted upon that matter as if hit by tiny objects. Gravitons hitting normal matter create an attractive force towards the source of said gravitons. So in your material gravitons hit like normal particles unto it?

well, anyway, it ain't real artillery, more of an Anti Aircraft Gun, or Flugabwehrkanone if you're german.

Technically, artillery is any cannon-grade weapon designed for indirect fire at long range, and often uses explosive rounds (but not always).

So yes, this is anti-aircraft artillery (AAA).

Nicely done my friend! I agree with you about the potential for anti-grav. That should be our next IDW topic(even though I haven't played in a while). Sweet rendering and that whole barrel assembly is fan-freakin-tastic. Always a pleasure to see you pump em out Guido.

It's a very good painting, but I give you zero points for technical plausibility.

what do you mean with technical plausibility?

I don't think it sounds or looks realistic enough for me to suspend my disbelief over it technically. It's meant to engage targets orbiting a planet with bullets.

I don't think an AA gun would be engaging lower targets with DU rounds. Aircraft aren't flying tanks. It would be better with a high explosive round of some sort. Otherwise, you'll require a direct hit.

But, I'm not trying to be a pain in the ass. I just think it's feedback that can be given. He's a obviously a very good artist.

I do appreciate the feedback, however I did do some homework for this.

High explosive rounds against aircraft are really something from WWII. If you search on google or youtube for the Flugabwehrpanzer Gepard, the Russian Tunguska or CIWS systems (or the actual Vulcan cannon) you'll see that with accurate Rader aiming Tungsten and DU rounds are perfect for the job.

I used the idea of anti-grav rounds in the same manner, except that they obviously don't exist. Their trajectory and that of the target can definately be calculated by a radar guided onboard computer system though, even taking into account earths rotation, targets speed etc.

Technically impossible, not really except for the fact that anti-grav simply hasn't been invented yet :P

I think it's an awesome design, and concept, but I must agree that it doesn't look like something one would expect to take down a satellite (even if it really could). It doesn't detract from the rendering for me, though.
