LMR BALLISTA railgun by FutureFavorite LMR BALLISTA railgun by FutureFavorite
An unfinished design sitting in my computer for nearly 6 months now, decided to dust it off and finish it.

a personal Railgun design being use by a personal soldier design.

wanting to design an incredibly powerful but sub-compact or weapon able to use with hands and thought a railgun would work absolutely perfect, but wanted to do it in such a way that it looked like a tech sheet or conceptual piece

(semi-inspired by the glorious AARON BECK.)

a personal fav of mine :)

I _thought_ it looked kinda Aaron Beck. Always nice to see such an awesome-looking railgun :)

At almost 57 pounds, I'm impressed he's shouldering it like that. Powered armor?

Ah my mistake, I need to fix some of the info, it should actually be like, 37 pounds, including the weapon, battery, charger, and weapon laptop that it's plugged into,

No a combination of tech and fabric soft armor

Ah, that makes more sense. By the way, I dig all the company logos you've got here.

Really good piece but on a technical side, could personal railguns even be practical as a personal firearm with guns still about? Maybe in some point in the future magnetic propulsion reaches efficiency greater than traditional firearms? 
Still, there is one thing that railguns will always have more than firearms: their awesomeness :D

Well, possibly, magnetic motors 10 x more efficient then oil or convential power means are already made, and uses practically no energy.

So the issue of power isn't really the problem more so of containing it and directing it, which I'm not entirely sure how. 

Real life rail guns sure attached on special war naval ships and are absolutely devastating to anything in hits.

Hah, neat. It's always a pleasure to see other people's interpretations of what man-portable rail-guns will be like in the future. My personal take is micro-coils, but... alas, in some distant universe where every weapon is detectable via electro-thermal disruption.
