That's a lot of railguns. Wonder what they have in place to counteract recoil.

In relative terms I feel that recoil will be quite insignificant compared to the mass of the ship.

The biggest problem would be horizontal spin due to the torque caused by gun recoil. And while the the ship obviously has a large amount of mass, a prolonged engagement would cause it to start to spin without counterthrusts.

Prolonged engagement will require lots of counter-maneuvering and evasive actions, so I don't think the ship will stay ballistic long enough for spin to build up.

So long as that counter-maneuvering includes thrusts that would cancel out the momentum from the recoil!

This is all mainly assuming that the guns are made for rapid bombardment, of course.
