Smoking GNU: Animatronik: So let me get this straight: we retired all of battleships because cannon are antiquated in the era of guided munitions, but now we want to build ships with electric cannon because theyre cool??This doesnt sound too smart.If i am not mistaken, The Railguns fitted on those ships have something like a 200 KM accurate range. And the projectiles travel at something like 0.25 light speed. So, a hell of a lot of a range advantage and SHAITLOADS of damage potential over the old cannons. Plus, you don't have to cart around all that gunpowder that can explode.Yeah, they're both totally the same and rails are only being included now cause they're "cool"

ThrobblefootSpectre: Say, why don't we let Taiwan worry about the defense of Taiwan, and save a few hundred billion?
