Ohh after looking at those numbers compared to the reactor-shield output of the Lucifer, the Lucifer will stand to that...  

Needless to say, you can't beat millions of years of technology held back by in-nessecity within a day...

Damn that! You make me look like an idiot   Well, I didn´t care to read through the stuff carefully, so that´s my excuse.
Here comes my sig... oh finished :D

From the Machina Terra Website:
Shielding was found to have no effect upon the field beam, even Lucifer class shielding is expected to be ignored completely

And trust me, those guys know what they're doing.

Ah, and those power output figures are not for the weapon effect itself (it's main effect is disruption at nuclear level, you simply can't avoid that) but for the secondary effects caused by the reaction it initiated. It can take out the Lucifer.


And it wasn't really a conscious achievment - if you read the text carefully, you'll notice that the "military" use for the Conversion Matrix was actually found by accident...

The question now is: WHAT'S THE VIS MAGNUS PROJECT?????

Imagine that the C-M was thought only to give energy to the core of the vis magnus...
Well, yes, they didn't expected that the c-m could be so powerful, but anyway it would be surely much powerful...

About the problems, if I understood the tech things (You know, I'm italian!!! I like sciences and I know a bit o evrything, but it's enough difficult in italian!!!! In english is, if possible, harder!), the greater problem is that there could be some type of feedback effect that brigns the c-m matix reaction on the c-m itself... I imagine that that could destroy the c-m...
But i think that an ole helios in the right place (i.e. the c-m gun, into the cannon i mean) could do something good =)

P.S. Hey guys I'm back =)

No - I know what it is, and how it works, but I'm still amazed by it. Especially with this render.

Okay, okay, you get a cookie for that...

But it's not like "you take out the right cannon and the ship dies". It's more like "you hit the right spot and the Conversion Matrix dies", but I won't get into more details...

Much more efficient to take out the subspace field guides.  It won't be able to fire with one or both destroyed.
WE ARE HARD LIGHT PRODUCTIONS. YOU WILL LOWER YOUR FIREWALLS AND SURRENDER YOUR KEYBOARDS. WE WILL ADD YOUR INTELLECTUAL AND VERNACULAR DISTINCTIVENESS TO OUR OWN. YOUR FORUMS WILL ADAPT TO SERVICE US. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.

do not torment the sleep deprived artist, he may be vicious when cornered,
in case of emergency, administer caffeine to the artist,
he will become docile after that,
and less likely to stab you in the eye with a mechanical pencil

Well... in FS2 I live up to Darkage's title, of 'quite insane'. But you'd have to see for yourself.
