What do we do about e guns, e cannons, drones and other electronic based weapons in future wars? How will these machines respond to tech like EMPs and multilayered radars?

 No.987

my e sides

Hey the first guns made weren’t great either
Just give the tech time to develop, I’m interested in this shit because when you can control the power of how fast and far a bullet can travel directly based off energy input this offers new opportunities for combat along with the lack of sound produced

gunpowder is superior in every way

I'm laughing at the ridiculous name "e gun".

 No.991

>>988
that is true, but until tech develops to match gunpowder then it's just a project.

 No.992

>>988
This is a stupid argument. We more or less know the limit of directed energy systems and other such junk. It's a mature technology and some technology just plain isn't possible.

They will probably be outclassed. I think we may see a definite change in accepted balance of forces. Considering that a force properly equipped with SAMs in an actual war between somewhat equal forces air-power might be all but useless. If you consider the cost of a MANPAD vs a jet or helicopter the former become rather useless.

no it has a limited rate of expansion, which limits the ejection velocity of a projectile.
To add more speed, it might be useful to add an "e-gun" stage after the expanding gases stage.
the e-gun stage could be powered by converting recoil energy into an electricity pulse.

Gunpowder's rate of expansion is actually well above what most firearms get and there's certain ways to get them faster.
That's an interesting idea, but I am fairly certain that the recoil of most components will happen well after the bullet leaves the barrel.
