This paper is the first part of a series of articles devoted to the researching of the principles designing of the railguns to accelerate the macrobodies. Here the results of comparative analysis of the electrodynamic railgun with increased traction for the acceleration of the large mass bodies are shown. Design of accelerators with multi-blade rotor and coaxial accelerator are illustrated and discussed.
