N. Going by the current armouring scheme, basic systems only need to cover non wastage volume, so for a hundred tonne hull, that would be eighty tonnes, at most.

O. So depending on what size primary hull turns out to be optimal, whether forty nine, a hundred or hundred and twenty tonnes, basic systems default/minimum for a degravitated hull, 3.92/1.86, 8/4, and 9.6/4.8 power points.

P. Basically, artificial gravity consumes five power points per hundred tonnes.

Q. A one tonne budgetted/increased size early fusion reactor would have an output of eight power points, which would be enough to cover basic system requirements for a hundred tonne planetoid, minus artificial gravity.

R. If we kept the manoeuvre drive switched on for a budgetted/increased size one tonne manoeuvre drive, for a hundred tonne hull, that would be another eight power points.

S. So in tailsitter configuration, that gives eighty percent Terran norm gravity, even in jumpspace.

T. In a way, it would be a killing two birds with one stone, the manoeuvre drive creates onboard artificial gravity, as long as it continues to thrust.

U. So that does indicate a two tonne early fusion budgetted/increased size reactor, for three fifths megastarbux.

V. That would brings us up to ten megastarbux so far, in costs.
