Not sure about that first one, but the second one? Ever get hit by a train? :angel:
No, I'm not that stupid. :D

I hope you're not envisioning a mobile version of the turret. Flame jet is probably a more apt descriptor: short range, no pools of fire, continuous ankle-biter-melting output that is slightly choppy in practice since the jet has to turn off to achieve it's max radians per second (at least, it appears so to me). It has very good utility for speeding progress through forests should you wish to expedite your return trip or blaze a shortcut.

I saw that too! What could it mean? We know about the spidertron, but... artillery train? Is this like a train car that fires at enemies, long-range? If so, I can see myself making one or two dedicated artillery train cars to keep the perimeter clear. :) That would be fun.

You only have to remove a long inserter per furnace, and upgrade each to electric.
With the three lines of Ore in, you can get a fair level of ore input and keep a LOT of furnaces going at once.
Adding another middle line instead at the start is an option, the two middle lines would then begin as ore+coal, and turn into ore+ore.
Would mean each side got four lines of ore along it's two belts.
The short inserters should be upgraded to fast ones. And you could put a line of crates in before the output lines, like below...

c = Crate
