Heh those are usually done from regular launchers, and usually are not carried on vessels that are not Fleet flagships or SM or =I= vessels. So than only battleships would have it .
The fact why they are not used in ship to ship combat is that the propulsion part is smaller, the warhead part much larger, and thus they are so slow that they make a specially easy target for enemies to intercept, and are too rare to waste in such a manner.
As the Ilyaden (or anothe Eldar?) suppelement shows, they are a good thing to shoot at Craftworlds though!
Well then since the creators of the game(TT) and ships failed in this manner I will continue to assume those barrels are some parts of the ships system for peace of mind sake But it is confirmed Nova cannons are rail gun's ( just like non-plasma macros batteries, there is a schematic of it in one of the rulebooks inside the ship) so I cannot personally agree that they are those, more like torpedo launchers or something.
Well not all railguns are nova cannons. Just as not all land projectile weapons are bolters or Quake cannons! (Novas are giant railguns of apocalyptic power , yeah)
