Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Confederation Marines: Patrol Cruiser Detachment 1. I picked out a ten Marine squad because it was a neat round number, probably the reason Games Workshop did as well. 2. I thought I'd divide it into three three Marine cells, but a little research found that the Marine Raiders got there first, and ...

Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Confederation Navy: Battle Rider Squadrons 10. It would appear that the Imperium Navy applied a faulty doctrine to the utilization of battle riders. 11. I suspect their new one isn't much better. 12. Confederation Navy have come to the conclusion that they need their jump capable fast dreadnoughts ...

LED lightning is low hanging fruit, that the Vilani obviously never discovered.

Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Confederation Navy: Battle Rider Squadrons 1. I've never seen an one, and doubt there is a canonical example; maybe MegaTraveller? 2. We know they exist, as it's mentioned the Rim fleet has it's in strategic reserve, probably one or two subsectors back. 3. Going by Sector Fleet, six to ten battle r...

Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Confederation Navy: Carrier Squadrons 1. Originally, I thought that what happens is that the carrier squadron would be split into two carrier groups, around which the Confederation Navy Fleet Squadrons would coalesce into battle fleets. 2. The carriers might be split up in peace time, but I think i...

Re: Rethinking Athletics Specialties

Athletics give one boon per combat session.

Specify physical characteristic to apply, for example strength to break a hold, dexterity to slip out of one, or endurance to outwait the opponent.

Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Confederation Navy: Patrol Cruisers 10. After due consideration, the Confederation Navy wouldn't use Fleet Frigates for presence missions, they're much more valuable for fast reaction, and pinning down as to where and in how many numbers, the enemy combatants are. 11. I wouldn't be too thrilled wit...

Confederation Navy: Patrol Cruisers 1. Despite being vanilla, might be quite an interesting spacecraft to examine. 2. Based on the one hundred five tonne jump drive, it has a strategic movement of four. 3. Add two thirty five tonne manoeuvre drives, it can accelerate at seven gees, allowing it to k...

Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Confederation Navy: Fleet Frigates 40. Another aspect to consider is exactly how much the Confederation is prepared to invest per minor combatant. 41. While it's not clarified, I do expect squadron escorts to be two kilotonnes. 42. The number of Fleet Frigates should be double the number of major (...

Confederation Navy: Fleet Frigates 30. My take on the Confederation Navy is that at least for engineering, they prefer to modularize, which allows easier manufacture, repair and subsequent maintenance, especially for massive motors. 31. This becomes an issue when you use multiples of jump drives, s...

Re: Revisiting the Fifth Frontier War narrative

Difference between Sword Worlders and Vargr could be they're late stage Vikings, thus more organized and culturally homogeneous.

Though I don't recall a trading tradition with the doggies.

Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Confederation Navy: Fleet Frigates 20. My instinct says to try and squeeze in a five hundred tonne bay; doable, it allows concentration of gunnery skill and computer prediction, but likely overkill against most opposition. 21. Going by the Harrier, you can squeeze in two torpedo cradles in one hard...

Re: Solomani Confederation (Military)

Confederation Navy: Fleet Frigates 10. While it's possible to squeeze in a five hundred tonne bay, it tends to tighten possible options, for what should be a multi role warship. 11. By itself, acceptable capability would be to mission kill an Imperium Navy destroyer or fleet escort, as well as act ...
