I have issues with fire control. Never look at anything I write as an example, as it probably doesn't count towards officialdom :P

Re: Traveller 5

Just to chime in, Gorgon Press will also be continuing it's support of MgT, though we may add some bits and pieces of T5 (stats and such) to books.

Re: heavy missile barbette/bay/etc

Though, if its a homing missile (of any kind) then the rack doesn't need to be positioned as much as it would normally need to be, ALL missiles in Trav have to be homing. Otherwise it would be impossible to hit another ship. I think the difference is between 'terminal' guidance and 'total' guidance...

Re: heavy missile barbette/bay/etc

** There is a sort of logic - mostly that even the most armoured naval battlewagon still dies horribly when faced with antiship torpedoes from a sub, whereas a traveller starship doesn't have to deal with a situation like this and can't "sink". You're making the common mistake of comparing the 2 be...

Re: Fast Cruiser Designs: Rakasha, Pazuzu, Abishai - Jump 6

Catch and board sounds fun. May I suggest those emergency rocket boosters that are poking about somewhere? The real problem with traveller is the lack of different speeds of ships. yes, it's a abstraction (probably?), but as soon as something has 6G's, it's uncatchable unless you get the drop on it....

Re: Fast Cruiser Designs: Rakasha, Pazuzu, Abishai - Jump 6

Well, I drop my concerns. I like the designs generally. I'm still not totally in agreement with the UNREP equipment, but I shan't argue with you over it :) But then I much prefer looking at line squadrons (See TCS) with their easy access to resources over these crazy protagonist-style warships :P

Re: Fast Cruiser Designs: Rakasha, Pazuzu, Abishai - Jump 6

Yes, and to provide options, better to do some damage than none, depending on what you are up against if it's 'big', and if they're small they'll both do damage regardless. I wont argue with that one. While personally I would stick to one type of main gun, they're only second tier to the spinal mou...

Well at that point... where are they getting their hands on this stuff? Battledress, combat armour, DSAP rounds, these are all High end military gear, not explorer grade. Look in the CSC, there are a set of rather basic rules on weapon licenses which can help you control what they and their enemies ...

*ahem* Didn't you get the memo? Seems the civilians and bureaucrats back home don't so much like the term 'jump and clobber' so we are now referring to such operations as either 'arrive and supress' or 'sweep and clear' - are we all OK with that? We can do better than that... Long range peace reass...

Re: Capital ship construction questions

Edit: hmmm... interesting conundrum these gunboats. That much hasn't changed. Need to be heavily armoured enough not to be blown away by a massed torpedo salvo, yet against their own type battle is hugely attritional. The heavy type B meson canon gunboat still rules the roost but the railguns offer...

Re: Capital ship construction questions

I'd certainly run with something like that. Torpedoes are farr too massy for what they can do, so anything to give you a couple more shots without crippling your internals would be good. Locarno, I love the SLAM's. Would they be operating as deployed drones? And was there ever a limitation placed on...
