Some of our readers, after reading my article on the DREAD Centrifuge Weapon (Centrifuge Gun), titled World Exclusive Video! DREAD Weapon System: Devastating, Jam-Proof, and Silent., are under the impression that the DREAD creates a gyroscopic effect, or somehow acts like a gyroscope.
According to Charles St. George, the DREAD's inventor, the DREAD does NOT create/cause ANY gyroscopic forces or effects, whatsoever. To put it another way, the DREAD does NOT act like a gyroscope. So, the DREAD will NOT have ANY adverse effect on the mounting vehicle's maneuverability, even while the DREAD is being fired on its highest rpm and velocity settings. NO adverse effect. None, whatsoever. I can't make it any clearer than that.
Unlike a gyroscope, the DREAD has no...
spinning outer ring. Also, the DREAD's housing (top and bottom) is heavier than the internal spinning/rotating mechanism itself. That's all I will say about it, for now.
Over the last few days, Defense Review has received several emails from Mr. St. George. Here's one of them, describing the DREAD's method of operation (re: firing):
"I think this explanation will describe how the DREAD works:
Get any regular 3 speed fan and switch it on. You'll be able to rotate, twist and in fact do any movement with the fan. Now attach a 1/2 inch dia ball to the end of each fan blade with some masking tape and swith the fan on. At the high speed RPM. the G-Forces will tear away the balls from the masking tape and sling the balls in any direction. There will be NO RECOIL generated by the departuring balls.
The only drawback is the balls will fly in any un-controlled 360 degreee direction. The DREAD system controls the balls departure and ensures their release in a straight line, one hehind the other as per the video.
