Auto Credit Based on SledDriver's The Gun of Navarone

Link to video

This howitzer can destroy Snowstone, and both bridges on Krakabloa all the way from Wright Airport. The USS Beast fleet is child's play by comparison.

Controls

Custom Camera 1: shell orbit cam.

Fire control computer

The fire control computer (well, a readout of elevation, bearing, and time, really) is accessed through cockpit view.

Elevation

Each activation group from 1 through 6 elevates the gun by 10 degrees. For fine adjustments, Trim adds plus or minus 5 degrees. So if you want 34 degrees, activate AG 1, 2, and 3, then use Trim to add 4 degrees.

Traverse

Traverse is controlled by VTOL and Throttle. VTOL is for major adjustments and will traverse the gun from -20 degrees to 20 degrees. Throttle lets you add plus minus 0.5 degrees.

Target settings

Snowstone: elevation 60, bearing -0.73
East bridge: elevation 11.77, bearing 17.77
West bridge: elevation 12.47, bearing 9.77

Projectile flight time from Wright to Snowstone is 3 minutes and 40 seconds.

    @BillyBobBang380 For a howitzer that can hit targets 100 miles away, there wouldn't be much point if you couldn't follow the shells. If you watch the video linked in the description, you can see orbit camera views of the shells in flight and hitting their targets. To view the camera, select Custom Camera 1.

    You cant follow the shells by any chance right?

    @KlydeVenierez Since the bridge is not a point target but has length, width and height, a range of bearings and elevations will hit it. The settings in the description are just the ones I happened to choose.

    Bearing for west bridge is actually 9.78 (not sure if this was already covered or not)

    @CDRxavier I'm not sure I understand everything you're saying, but I'm glad you liked it. I just enjoy making outlandishly overpowered weapons.

    @SledDriver
    I liked the feeling of setting the cameras to "chase" camera and then watch the shells fly through
    clearly the big 250cm did not have the correct velocity or the camera.
    Damn that shot was so close ...
    Using this feel more like a doomsday device rather than a proper cannon, by the way. Feels good.
    WHAM! There you go, bridge!

    @yeahboi These? Nah, these are fairly basic. I wanted to keep the part count to a minimum on this one. Wait till you see what's next.

    @Panzer828 Well, it's just a suggestion, if you want to make something else, go for it.

    @Panzer828 Hmm, I don't know, just make whatever you want to make... maybe a bomber that flies at a very stable speed and altitude so it can be shot down?
