OK, so my main character has created a hand held coil gun cannon, the whole coil gun is 6 feet long with the barrel taking 5.5 feet of the said coil gun.
The coil gun is equipped with recoil nullifying module(Don't ask what is it because even I don't know yet. I'll make a separate question for that) so recoil at best is like firing a grenade launcher.
Now as for the ammunition, they are like the current ammo used in guns except that the bullet is a ferromagnetic projectile, and the casing or in this case super capacitors which stores 1.1TJ of energy for a single shot and once discharged it is ejected out from the coil gun cannon like spent casings in modern day gun once spent in a single shot.
Now the objective of this design is to be able to breach 1 meter of thick carbon/steel composite armor of possible giant robots, monsters or barriers of enemies that may be encountered.
With 1.1 Tera joule powering a coilgun for a single shot, how powerful a coilgun can be with 50mm ferromagnetic projectiles?
What kind of figures will I be needing to pierce that kind of level of protection 1 meter of carbon/steel composite?
Coil gun specifications that I have
I have no idea for the wire, I probably need stronger wire to effectively conduct a 1.1 Tera joule power. Since I need to loop it around a single coil 400 times, it needs to be thin. probably thinner than the current wires of today.
There are 8 coils 18 centimeter each that is looped 400 times(Tight and no spacing) in triple layer configuration which is evenly distributed over the 5.5 feet length of the barrel.
Of course insulators.
"Bullet" or projectile length is 9cm.
The projectile is fin stabilized using flexible materials.
Projectile is spun by an electric motor running at 60,000 rpm.
Internal battery for internal computer and electric motor.
Tell me if I am missing something from the design.
