    If that thing works like you said it would it might actually be usable as planetary artillery platform

    Back when rotors had more structural integrety than tissue paper i had a ship i called the kraken where it had a bunch of grinder lined arms that opened wide then snapped shut around an enemy ship and would literally rip a heavy ship in 2 in seconds. Now any attempt to recreate results in the arms breaking off as soon as you move the ship.

    I tried to disconnect with merge blocks while on a planet, to make it reusable, but even with good timing the seperated part wouldn't retain velocity. When I used a warhead to disengage, it somehow all disappeared. The part attached to the ground was blown up, of course, as well as the voxels, but the super long projectile couldn't be found using the space master. Weird.

    Needs more testing. You should try something out as well.

    I got an idea of using 1% constructed light armor as link between projectile and launcher.

    It should be destroyed right away when it snaps into the launcher.

    With large grids i could also tey small warheads for breaking the connection


    I am also curious to see if i could assemble a version that has wheel suspensions on the end of the projectile& setup that does not launch the projectile. It MIGHT be usable as jump-pack for mechs :D

    Or railgun.
