I was going for lot's of straight lines, kind of a theme I have in other Zelsen stuff, though ignore the models' overall ugliness as they were just thrown together pretty quickly.

Post subject:  Re: Con-Weapons

Carrier tank? how does that work? sort of a heavily-armed APC ?

problem with your boxy tank, which looks nice otherwise, is that straight angles are a gunner's wet dream; if you hit that thing with a big cannon it's dead, because the energy doesn't have anywhere else to go but into the tank, whereas stuff with angled sides are sturdier, for the opposite reason.

Also, regarding the boxy and cool short SMG-like thing *goes to check the post* yeah, the KHZ960.1, it's got a real short barrel, so it only makes sense it's poor at long ranges. Still, forest or no forest, Zelse weaponeers are probably gonna make some longer-range stuff, like rifles or carabines. The thing with the bayonet probably fills that role, but it looks too bulky to be practical to wield, much less as a mélee weapon. I'd recommend either making it thinner or having the bayonet be ceremonial or symbolic; such a heavy rifle can hardly be used practically in mélee.

Also, I loved the story of the Daka Ye; it would make a great narrative setting... sort of a D-day on land. love it.

Melvillians go as far as genetic engineering. Yes, some soldiers are actually happy to give birth to "gifted" children.

(Not that they all go to the military. As a result, Melvillians don't believe in any sport event as a display of human limits.)

axes, sticks, pikes, javelins, composite bows and, of course, maces and short sword; standard issue bronze age weaponry. I should really think about how a denser atmosphere [Somewhere around 1.2atm] and a lower gravity ['round 0.80m/s^2] affect weapons development and stuff, not to mention an abundance of easy-to-mine cupronickel deposits [which I understand is a pretty strong alloy, and which often fullfils the role of the harder-to-smelt iron].

The Myonian T-3 tank, which I happened to have information for already laying around.


(The background is not mine, but the tank model is)

Basic stats
Length: 9.1m hull, 12.8m gun forward
Height: 3.68m
Width: 4m
Main gun: 120mm railgun (rails hidden within the barrel itself), also equipped for missile launching.
Main gun movement: 15° down, 30° up
Secondary guns: 40mm railguns
Secondary gun movement: 15° down, 45° up
Crew: 4

Power is generated by a miniaturized fusion reactor.

Saltha is very far behind in terms of technology. No tanks or machine guns (or really fire arms for that mf atter). In fact, Saltha's first fire arms, an assault riffle were recently purchased from another country (on NationStates). Hopefully Saltha won't need to go to war until they catch up. :P

Fidasek ("Trap four")

A spear handle with four sharp curved blades. that can be used to disarm opponents.

One "weapon" they have isn't really one, it's a stick with padding on one end (kind of like those things in american gladiator, only on one end). I forget what it's called. It's used by children in training. The children sneak up on other children who are in other clans to "assasinate" them.

Unoriginal weapons Salthans use include spears, swords and daggers.

Here's the smoking lance, an important 16th - 19th century cavalry weapon.

The smoking lance was invented after the Bessarhusian colonists made contact with the Harykanid Zama-Khans and began trading gunpowder. The smoking lance is effectively a very very very long bayonet. They used broad Murkha bamboo for the shaft, which could be 3 - 4 metres long. On the end was affixed a large bore gun, at first using wheellock mechanisms but eventually switching over to flintlock in the mid 1700s. The gun was frequently 60 - 90 cm long and fired balls 3 - 4 cm in diameter, and a bayonet of 70 - 80 cm was attached to the end. A large counterbalance would be needed. The total length of the lance could be 5 - 6 metres. At first these were used in a devastating cavalry charge, where the first line would hand gallop, perform a sliding stop, fire their lances, then retreat to the back of the column, followed by the second rank doing the same, etc, the cavalry would only charge home if they needed to after at least half had fired off their lances. The lance was typically held in both hands, only the legs and the seat were used to control the horse.

Reloading these was a pain, and after the charge, they had to retreat to baggage trains where footmen would reload or give them fresh lances.

In the mid-late 1800s, muzzleloaders became obsolete, and the smoking lance became slightly shorter. The 1843 Gurkhan pattern was 4.7 metres long. In the 1850s, repeating rifles became available and the smoking lance became a repeating smoking lance, often using bolt or pump action. The 1858 Urkhanka model was 5.2 metres long. These were extremely capable weapons in the right hands. The last use of the smoking lance happened during the Appalan War in 1911, in the Ala-Khanid cavalry charge against the Wardoz at Pouhannast.

I've designed several other sets of arms and armour from different civs and time periods, but they are not particularly strange, although some of them have some interesting styles.

I always thought the idea of War-Scissors was an interesting one. These would be scissors anywhere from the size of ones hand to maybe 4 times as big. One would place one or more of ones fingers (depending on the size, in the hole, and swing it about, using specific arm/hand movements to open/close the blade (this would obviously take a lot of training). It would be really cool to watch
