I Started laughing at the words "Hyper death cannon and 1,000mm"
I mean I know gundam isn't exactly the epitome of naming weapons but really. really? Hyper Death Cannon. surely you forgot the mega prefix for the cannon right? right? Also, 1,000mm? wtf. I doubt the mobile suit deployed beam weapons were that caliber.
Correction, the bore of either of it's bazooka's was about the width of it's wrists. [link]
when it comes to mobile suit weapons I think somebody dropped the ball. the giant bazooka (360mm) and the raketen (880mm) actually look to be similar in bore size to one another, but if we where to believe the measurements listed the Raketen's design would have to more than double it's size.
And why would people freak out about a 1,000mm round? probably because 360mm is pushing it for the biggest bore size of modern artillery.
I wasn't talking about the model kits. I was just working with the numbers I was given. So yeah, someone fucked up. It just annoys me when someone talks about numbers but doesn't actually think about what the numbers mean.
I honestly don't care about modern military standards. That doesn't have anything to do with Gundam. Just so you know, the largest cannon we've created is an 800mm cannon: [link]
So, 880 or 1000mm by GUNDAM standards should be nothing. And yes, the Hyper-Death Cannon is basically a short-barrel artillery gun, as funny as that sounds.
I think this is whee scales get a little odd. durring the OYW the average height of MS ws about 18 meters tall, roughly 10x the size of a human male.
going with the 100m machingun (since it's about average in bore size and a nice neat number) that'd be the equivliant of a .40 caliber smg in a human's hands. That sounds about right.
The majority of the bazookas, specficly the Zaku BZ(120mm) andDom's giant BZ/gundam's hyper BZ (360mm) are both the size of common modern artliery.
ofcourse when you scale this to that 6ft tall man the weapons do look a bit puny. Specficly to match up to the actual bazookas you'd need it in 570mm. other rocket launchers could easily scale into the 880mm and even 1,000mm launchers. Hell a MS sized Law would be a 840mm.
At the same tiem you've got to look at the way the majority of these MS Bazookas are designed, they'd more often then not clip fed. so scaling them up to mete this scale would result in them look rather odd.
So, by Gundam standards a 880mm rpg would be more like anti-Mobile armor or anti-ship then a weapon to use against other MS.
