Can someone add an infobox to the article (you know, heat, damage, range, etc.)? Cipher42 19:36, 13 January 2007 (CST)

Prototype Stats[edit]

Prototype Stats should probably go to Gauss Rifle (PROTOTYPE) and be a reproduction of the Gauss Rifle article with the prototype stats in place of the production models stats rather than being out in the main article.

Alternately, Proto could be added where necessary in the infobox... what is the consensus?--Cameron 19:00, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Technical Availability[edit]

This section does not belong in the main article, there are infobox sections for this, they are new, but they do exist, see Help:CreateWeaponArticle and copy the appropriate sections.--Cameron 19:07, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Electromagnetic Missile Launcher (EMML) on Wikipedia[edit]

The other day, I was discussing with my friends about ideas for alternate munitions for the Gauss Rifle in homebrew campaigns, and one person proposed using the Gauss Rifle as a delivery system for missiles to enable them to travel further and outrun AMS tracking systems.

When I was trying to determine if that would actually be possible, I came across something interesting in my research: According to the Wikipedia article for Coilguns, the United States military is actually working on a Gauss Rifle as a launch mechanism for Tomahawk missiles.

Since nothing like that exists in an official BattleTech product, it's not really worth mentioning on any existing pages, and as such the only home for it would be the BattleTech Fanon Wiki, but it is still an interesting read nonetheless. ~Amaroq Starwind~ (talk) 16:23, 23 March 2018 (EDT)

Real world developments have absolutely nothing to do with Battletech after 1993 (I think that is the official point of divergence anyway) and in all honesty I really would not want to bring too much real world into it anyway, it is a fictional universe and probably best left that way. --Dmon (talk) 06:23, 24 March 2018 (EDT)
