I will throw one of our own ideas into the ring for scrutiny,

We were thinking 'Dreadnought' (or its variation 'Dreadnaught').


noun /ˈdredˌnôt/ 

dreadnoughts, plural

A type of battleship introduced in the early 20th century, larger and faster than its predecessors and equipped entirely with large-caliber guns.

In no way am I trying to think any of these are original names... but maybe will help get the wheels turning for something creative.




Mjolnir (Thor's Hammer)

Gungnir (Odin's Spear)

Negh'Var (Geek alert! The largest Klingon warship ever!!)

Mons Meg (A 15th century siege/artillery weapon noted for its HUGE size)

Ursa Major (Big Bear constellation. Save the "Ursa Minor" for your pistol configuration?)

I thought about Dreadnaught, Leviathan and Nautilus (Jules Verne novels)... But they all seemed a little too aquatic to me???

I'll think of more later

What were some of the war engines of antiquity called?  Maybe I am not quite remembering the ram used in one of the big battles in the Lord Of The Rings.  The name the Orcs gave to the ram used to down the gates of the Tower?  Copyrights could be an issue with all this!
