Re: Ship Combat: The Particle Barbette

If I recall correctly, particle accelerator weapon systems could only be mounted in monoturrets, compared to laser optional triturrets.

Re: Fuel Expenditure from Surface to Highport

Re: Who Would Spec A Budget Power Plant?

If there's one thing I wouldn't screw around with on a starship, it would be the hyperdrive; for Traveller, you're intruding into a different dimension, this is something you'd want to be completely confident in that it will work as intended. As regards consumer electronics, my upgrade cycle is two ...

Re: Ship Combat: The Particle Barbette

1. I'm just guessing here, partially because it was never an issue in the past, but either the radioactive weapon systems are heavily shielded, or the beam does a neutron dance later on; that leads to the question of minimum range. 2.

Re: Who Would Spec A Budget Power Plant?

For electronics, except for Apple's, it's usually more cost effective to throw them away and replace them, if you can't figure out a solution within a quarter of an hour.

And for Apple's, find a gray market technician.

Re: Who Would Spec A Budget Power Plant?

Maintenance in Traveller is incredibly cheap.

The only time expense is an issue is with damage and possible acquired quirks.

Re: Weapons for a special-operations ship

Three things really stopped the Mongols: amphibious operations, jungle warfare and probably congested European terrain. As regards the fragility of their institutions, it worked as long as you had a Khan of khans that all respected, probably the reason everyone had to return home, do some politickin...

Re: Is there a list of systems that require jump N to reach, or ones that require a major detour for lower jump?

It really comes down to how hard the thirty two point six light year hop is.

If it's an absolute, you have to build hubs equidistant from each other.
