'LIGHTNING [NL']Before anyone else thinks the dora isn't too big for the FH battlefield, plase watch this movie: (Right click on the file and "save target as..." then open it from your harddrive). (If the attachement is not working go to http://www.panzerlexikon.de. Then go to "video-clips" and watch the first one under "dora").
From that movie I concluded that the Dora is almost the same size or smaller than a Airplane Carrier and the Carrier isn't too big for the battlefield! In BF everything is in a smaller scale so it fits perfectly by it's size. The carriers are just as big! I would say that the Dora would be like a Carrier on land. You can't use the size of it as a reason to not put Dora in the battlefield.
Dora would be a very cool static to play around- and woud cetainly make a cooler destroybale objective then a big boxy factory.. The only way we'd ever see a working railgun thouhg is if one of these smaller http://www.aopt91.dsl.pipex.com/railgun/Content/Models/N%20Scale/n-centrics/n-centrics.htm ones was dont. The smaller ones have got to be workable, like the US-16 incher railcannon. Thats smaller then the batterys on gold beach. Here's the actual dimension of dora: Effective range 40 km Max. elevation 53° Total weight 1350 tonnen Barrel weight 400 tonnen including 110 tonnen breech block & ring Overall lenght 43 m Width 7 m Height 12 m Barrel lenght 32 m (40 times its caliber) Shell type Armor capped 3.75 meter shell (without propellant casing) Shell Weight 7100 kg I got it of here http://palpatine.chez.tiscali.fr/Page13/page13.htm
