I gotta say Texas, You Argue well, sorry I wasn't on for so long guys,been having computer issues lately.
And yeah I tend to count plasma in between, But MOSTLY it's an energy weapon not kinetic.
As for a Portable MAC gun like was mentioned..... that would be EXTREMELY difficult simply in terms of power, For example a minigun : Works
beautifully when mounted on helicopters and various other mechanized transports, but has MAJOR issues trying to make portable. The highest of which is
quite simple : The power required to spin the gun at the speed necassary to make it even HALf as powerful as the mounted versions would require (even
with micronized components) about 20-30 pounds of backpack weight. That's not even counting the AMMO you would have to carry.
Just in case I was wrong, I asked an informant of mine in the army , This info is his and he stands by it.
This makes something like a rail gun or MAC cannon simply too heavy for anything short of of a spartan to use properly.... And if you want my opinions
on THAt subject, please message me, don't want to put those out on possible search engines alerts...
