Regarding the G-forces and sensitive equipment of the satellites:
Nanotechnology and MEMS starts delivering sensors and circuits that can stand tremendous high G forces. Emerging nanoexplosives could add some extra
muscle to your gunlaunch while reducing the costs.
Meanwhile I would think that a gun is worth researching for the purpose of shooting capsules containig liquid propellant/oxygen etc to be captured by
freighter in LEO and further transport/relay it to a spacestation.
I don't say its a cakewalk and I am sure you would have to throw many buckets of money at it, but I would think it is worth trying...
Such superguns would be able to deliver all kinds of nasty stuff to your average rogue state on the other side of the globe l, so they would become
matter of discussion in ICBM treaties as well i guess.
