A3_4 Babylon Gun
This paper investigates the Iraqi supergun that was under construction in 1988. The gun was never completed so its performance will be investigated using a model constructed from information about the gun. The maximum height of a projectile fired from the gun was calculated and compared to the project leaders original claims of the weapon. It was found that the projectile would rise to a height of 1046km, which was very close to the 1000km originally predicted.
