The Tojinbo Cannons - Neo Japan 2202 by johnsonting The Tojinbo Cannons - Neo Japan 2202 by johnsonting
Here's another piece for Neo Jap 2202! Getting really excited expanding the universe bit by bit.

Long story short: The Tojinbo Cannons (Located at the Tojinbo cliffs, Japan) were built to shoot the moon in half to decrease the rapid acceleration because it was going to hit earth. Bam.

chinooks... 60th...
why does nobody worries about cannons?
they can be killed with 1st gen ballistic rockets developed in same 60th?
big guns died with Dora.

Just because they use outdated technology doesn't mean they can still make usage of them. Give it some thought, guys.

Shoot the moon in half because its gonna fall into Earth. As an Astronomer, I can say that unless another celestial body of equal size or with sufficient inertia hit the moon, it would take until the 3400s for the moon to hit the Earth. And long before then, we will have perfected space flight and stabilized the moons orbit so we could terraform it.

As for the cannons though, they are awesome. And I agree with everyone else: Chinnoks, really?

2202 and we're still using chinook helicopters that have been around since the 1960's

If this universe has mastered space travel then why didn't Earth just build space based weapons? They'd be easier to position than waiting for the guns on the ground and the moon to align. But still I can't not say this piece is amazing. And yet those 20th century Chinooks.

Awesome guns. By the way most people assume that those guns shoot projectiles. Its the future? they could be giant Particle accelerators, laser cannons or even ray cannons. Anyway I do see however firing a weapon like that in earths atmosphere without the right kind containment field could destroy the ozone layer or worse.

This is amazing! these Cannons are really big!

However, why are you using Chinook helicopters? It does not fit the setting at all, I think you should design some kind of futuristic transport aircraft, looking at your other works, it should look incredible.

Chinook helicopters are not likely to be used in 200 years time.

CH-47s were introduced in 1962 and the first ones (after upgrades) are still in active service, the last variant (CH-47F) rolled out of the production line in 2006. It's a great helicopter with a great design, so hey, who knows.
Also, Kawasaki has a license to produce them (as variant J), so that places them in Japan with local production.

Funny that people are pointing out that the Chinooks would be obsolete in the time of Neo Japan. Anachronism is quite common in scifi - easiest examples I can think of are firearms in movies and anime - which commonly feature guns from the 20th century despite advanced starship technology, colonization, and cybernetics.

If this thing actually broke the moon in half (Which I m going to ignore the fact it would merge back together due to gravity) the amount of debris is going to be astronomical, and I really doubt such a massive gun can be fired that quickly to deal with all of the rocks that got loosen up. Even if we assume more batteries around the world to safeguard America, Europe/Africa, and such.

Think of this as an exponentially worse scenario of why no scientist suggest blowing up asteroids with nukes unless there is absolutely no other way (And even then its debatable), you destroy one rock, but get many more, which would only work if the smaller ones are small enough to burn in entry.
If not, a rock that could have hit a single city you could have evacuated now is five rocks which impact USA, Russia, China, Europe, and Japan. World Wars have started for much less than that.
Look at the picture's background, you can see the moon, and chunks the size of countries flying away. The guns would likely take out those first, while smaller but still devastating ones get past. To say notihng of the fact those cannons do not seem to be mounted on turrets, so no adjusting angle of shot, nor turning around.

All things considered, Earth was screwed one way or the other. :P (But its fiction, so we can ignore this type of problems, of course)
