IDW #112: Anti-Orbit Self Propelled Artillery
Topic: Anti-Orbit Self Propelled Artillery
Background: Pretty straightforward theme this week. This piece of artillery (mounted on it's own vehicle so it can relocate fast) should be able to take out any and all that moves both at close range and in the outer layers of the planet's atmosphere.
Edit: With close range I mean objects within the planets' atmosphere (you can decide yourself whether this is a few thousand yards or several hundred kilometeres).
1. Design and draw an AO-SPA!
2. That's it... now draw!
Deadline: Wednesday, September 30

Anti-Orbit Self Propelled Artillery.....
Damn, that just sounds pretty...
Off to work!

Here's a few images I pulled out of my reference folder:
Low Earth orbit is defined as anywhere from 100 miles/200 km to 1,200 miles/2000 km. That is really, really far.
Some thoughts that immediately came to mind: How many people does it take to man this thing? Modern artillery pieces need around a dozen people, this is futuristic, so less, right? Wheeled, tracked, or mecha? The brief specially states that the AO SPA must be able to attack terrestrial targets as well.... Should that be line-of-sight, parabolic or orbital-parabolic? All three?
Now off to work...

Are we limited to this thing being on ground or can it be anywhere?

n00dles: Yeh I'd say on the ground or close to it. Otherwise it wouldn't really classify as artillery I think, as it becomes more of an airplane or floating turret or stuff. If you find an elegant solution that still reads like a Self Propelled Gun than feel free to give it a try.

Another sketch of an idea, prob gonna go with this one.
Idea behind it: An artificial intelligent artilliry tank, the front part is its brain and targeter, it locks on to a target, which can be high up hundreds of kilometers in the atmosphere and steady's its main gun. In case any sneeky engineer wanna sabotage this baby it activates its anti-personal rockets mounted on the left and right side of the hull. It is also armed with a 9 mm machine gun mounted on the front. This mech is all terrain and is extremely precise.
