Assorted Role Plays: UTN Notes

This is a cool one. I think I typed this while I was supposed to be studying at college. Yes, because I spent most of my time listing science fiction and fantasy lore than doing work. Yet somehow managed to leave with passes and I think a merit? Anyway, this is a very much unfinished raw transcript, and as such some details (such as dates) are not listed, because I was yet to finalise them in the main timeline. This one is actualy a a very slight variation of my "main" timeline, where the UTN is wiped out by an unknown event. This is not too different from my current timeline, where they are almost wiped out by an Alien Invasion (read here). (I clarify it in the current timeline, it wasn't the Maikors) I guess I could say it is "Alt Canon"? Oh my, my universe is really fractured. Everything else here is canon.


I really need to unify it, one day I will, and I will post it here. Maybe I will write a book on it. But I probably won't ;_;

*************Mass Drivers************************************

*************************************************************

Mass Drivers are weapons that accelerate physical mass-based projectiles at high speed. The term can also be used to describe early 20th century gas-expansion weapons, but mainly refers to modern coil, rail and Fission Impulse guns.


*************************************************************

**********Fission Impulse Mass Driver (FIMD)*****************

*************************************************************

The FIMD, or Fission Impulse Mass Driver is a weapon system invented in <date> by the Terran Space Research Corporation, that has been in use with the UTN Armed Forces since it's founding. The weapon utilises a controlled Nuclear Reaction to propel a solid projectile at high velocities. The projectile, often refered to as a "slug", is loaded into the firing chamber, after of which the ignition chamber is filled with a small amount of Nuclear fuel - essentially a 'pellet' of Uranium-235. A high-powered laser is then fired into the fuel pellet, inducing a nuclear reaction, which propels the slug. FIMDs are based on similar principles to firearms of the 20th and 21st centuries, but rather than relying on gas expansion, the slug is propelled by Nuclear energies, and thus achieves a much greater muzzle velocity.


Fission Impulse derived weapons are used by all branches of the UTN Armed Forces, from handheld weapons to the main guns of warships. Despite being many thousands of years old, FIMD based weapons continue to be the primary weapon system, and have been constantly upgraded. The FIMD was replaced by the HMFIMD as the primary weapon of the UTN Navy, though many older warships are still equipped with the FIMD.

****Hybrid Magnetic Fission Impulse Mass Driver (HMFIMD)****

************************************************************

The HMFIMD is a development of the FIMD, first developed in <date> but wasn't introduced until <date>, due to manufacturing limitations with then existing super-conducting technologies. The HMFIMD utilises a Magnetic Accelerator built into the barrel construct that increases accuracy and muzzle velocity, similar to a coilgun. The HMFIMD is now the standard weapon system of the Federal Navy, and has been upgraded significantly.

The Antimatter Impulse Mass Driver is the latest development of Mass Driver technology. Only recently developed by the Naval Research Labs, the AIMD utilises the Nuclear Energies released by colliding Matter with Anti-matter particles. Though this
