        Hmm. Was a bit confused about the three types. I was thinking
somewhat of small massdrivers (small EMs along the tube to accelerate the
round sequentially) rather than coilgun or railgun.

        Railguns are probably best suited for MA -- smaller energy
requirement, simplicity in design, though coilguns are also suitable,
although the magnetic field of the coil might be problematic.

I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection.
Excellence I can reach for; perfection is God's business.
