I would say the nuclear ammo is not an increase (+nD) but a substitution (base → 6DD) and not covered by that text box.
The Zircon nuclear gun drone from CSC (p.147) agrees with you.

Re: Gazelle Class Close Escort

I might be completely wrong, my knowledge of the ancient days is poor (anything before Mongoose) but isn’t the Gazelle one of the early designs from when Traveller was a small-ship universe, where the Kinnunir was considered an imperial cruiser and the two 1,000 ton escorts were proper destroyers? F...

Re: How does the patrol corvette land?

Or the tips can rotate upward, which would give enough clearance for landing gear. That could work too. Come to think about it, the entire wing might fold upwards, just like on many carrier-based aircraft today. Looking at the picture on p.136 of High Guard, it does look like the wing could fold ju...

Re: Gazelle Class Close Escort

Minor nitpick, but I wouldn’t say the Gazelle has the wrong bridge, it is flagged as “small” in High Guard, so it’s a conscious choice.

Why and how a warship is designed with a built-in -1DM to everything bridge-related is another issue...

Looking forward to see those alternate gazelles!

Re: How does the patrol corvette land?

Thanks for the input everyone! While I do agree that the Type T has enough tools to not need to be able to land, I prefer if it can, so that's how I'll play them :) While spindly mantis legs would definitely be interesting, I feel that folding fins and 'regular' landing gear is the way to do it. A r...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Question for those who have run the Treasure Ship Adventure: Irontooth’s vessels include a “300 ton bug-class” salvage hauler. I cant find this vessel. The ships book details a 400 ron vulture class, but no 300 ton. Is there somewhere I’m supposed to be looking for this vessel’s particulars, or is ...

How does the patrol corvette land?

Greetings, I have a simple and perhaps slightly silly question... how does the type T patrol corvette land? Does it: A) use the lower vertical fins on the wingtips as rear landing legs? B) fold the vertical fins and extend landing gear? C) not land (I.e. despite being streamlined and relatively smal...

Re: So, what's with the supplements?

Yeah, that would probably be better! Let these books focus on adventure scale and release a separate “capital ships of the alien races”-book, or perhaps bundle it with Frontier war? I’m not sure which of the other races that have large ships, or how they measure up to the imperium’s, but I’d love to...

Re: So, what's with the supplements?

It sounds like a terrific idea! Are we talking about something along the lines of Pirates of Drinax book 2, pages 26-119, with history, culture, CSC, vehicle handbook and high guard entries for each race? Beacause that would be absolutely awesome! :D Much of the text can be re-used from the existing...

Re: Traveller as a Spaceship Modeling Hobby

According to High Guard, common areas have laundry and it’s not uncommon for staterooms to have food preparation units (possibly autochefs from CSC) ACCOMMODATIONS Most ships utilise the humble stateroom, but other types of accommodation are possible.

Matthew, do you happen to have an outline of the updated Mercenary book that you can share?

Re: The players' covenant

But couldn’t that still result in a clash between characters if one of the players wants to re-roll and create a new character? I mean, if the characters are more important, then the chemistry between them would be too, as opposed to a campaign where the characters are mainly stat blocks? If the sta...

Re: Particle beam radiation damage

Well, the beam laser does have DM+4 to hit (core rulebook p.156) which is useful for civilian traders where the gunner might not be top of the class retired naval gunner. As for standard weapons, it’s cheaper, and for a Free Trader simply having weapons might scare off minor pirates in non-dedicated...
