Reminds me of that moment in Halo:Reach where you man the giant MAC cannon near the end.

This would be awesome to face against Striders with.

i forgot to mention that the gun and the base are separate, the base is installed on wherever they plan to use it, then the gun is brought by a chopper/truck and installed on top of the base. it's not a single piece.

another important piece is the reactor, which powers and provides ammo for the gun. the military didn't find out how black mesa kept the reactor so small on the original weapon, therefore the reactor had to be built on an even larger scale. the reactor is about 5m tall, and one of the main objectives in the rand avenue map is to protect it from being destroyed by the combine.

the military preferred to keep the full blast as an emergency, you can only unlock the full blast by manually overriding the security code. the gun initially only charges up to 40% which is enough to kill a strider. you'll see what happens when you charge it up to 100% when we release the first chapter.

looks pretty nice. what are your plans for texture work? something like the original perhaps, or maybe a dull, not so design-centric piece (to reflect that it's still new technology)?

Well guess this mean that some of the retreating HECU marines or the few that got left behind n managed to make it out made a pact with the BM scientist or scientists that played a part in actually building & designing the 1st Gauss cannons.

Thats the only real explanation as to how the Phoenix Marines would have been able to replicate such a seriously advanced piece of tech like that. That & or one or more prototype Gauss guns happened to be taken from Black Mesa before it was erased with a thermonuclear bomb.

Would be pretty dam cool to see some X Black Mesa scientists working with the Phoenix Marines tho.

As for the gun its self is it a sentry type gun or is it manually controlled via some kind of an inter face like a lap top for example?

Also will any be capable of being mounted on some kind of a vehicle like a modified M113 APC or Bradly chassis?

the gun started its construction even before the seven hour war, was put on a 2 month hold due to the invasion, then accomplished a month/3 weeks before the events in of2.

this is a military version of the gauss cannon. as you obviously know, the original project already had its blueprints and prototypes back in black mesa. a few HECU marines decided to steal those on the operation, soon after that the military started working on the GAUSS-2, a bigger, stronger version of the portable gauss cannon, from their own blueprints and renditions of the original black mesa concept.

read a post the made on this comment page btw, there's more info there.
