The Mining Cannon

At least that's what it was intended for. Mining. But until we have a mining projectile I'll have to settle for vaporizing asteroids. It accelerates to ~8 u/s quite quickly and turns very easily. Great mobility for 800 tonnes of heavy titanium. There is a lot of heavy titanium in this thing. View the images for larger size.

9 personnel cannons for now since they are the most powerful and we don't have a mining cannon yet. The aluminium thing at the front helps with aiming and the floating glass shows where the projectiles hit when looking through the camera.

Plenty of storage place and crafting capabilities.

I cheated with the power generators a little. You only see a few generators but there are over 20 generators in total behind the main thrusters.

The center console is for movement and the right side console controls the cannon and auxiliary thrusters that aim the cannon. Left console does nothing.

My point is that you do not want this thing to be aimed at you. This asteroid was ~3000 tonnes a 1-2 minutes ago. Not it's 980 tonnes.
