yes we understand the twin barrel was cancelled in 2010 but yet and operational concept slide w/ the twin barrel can be found in an operational concept slide. Gaining the firepower first initiative is everything. Maybe not something to be publicized.

Searching news concerning the New Generation Fighter on the Dassault website, I found a little video about Dassault and the Cleansky program.

IMO there were three interesting "projects" :

-A twin-tailed "Falcon"

-A "Falcon" with canard

-New wing parts for a four-engines civilian transport planes

The upper cruiser-carrier image is a fake. It's from Damien Burke's 'Admiral Furashita' alternate history.

What is that double-barrel "CoCrusader"?  Russia had a double barrel prototype they were working with but it looks like the version in service reverted to a single barrel.  What is the advantage of a double barrel on a SP gun?  I'd think the extra weight, space, complexity, and reduced ammo loadout would make it a non-starter.  ???

As for a 1000-mile gun. . .

I mentioned the overkill somewhere else and was shot down, apparently the idea is to get two shells close together.  IMHO, overlap possibly but smart munitions and a single barrel make more sense.  Of course there will always be those who believe some is good but more is better.

 That is the fourth time you have posted that pic. Tacky and uncalled for especially since there is a real US Army task force studying 1000 mile gun..

Didn't know I had a fan club monitoring my posts.  As for "tacky and uncalled for" I'll bet you're a blast at parties.  It's called a J-O-K-E.  ::)   

Ultimately, when they get railguns / coilguns figured out, I wouldn't be surprised if they had fixed installations in the States that could toss a projectile anywhere in the world.  Would also be a good argument for nuclear powered battle cruisers.
