Note: For the examples of spacecraft design posted on this blog, I mostly use 2ed. Mongoose Traveller rules, but some examples using 1ed. rules will persist until they can be upgraded.

Look at the side column for variant rules I use in my campaign.

100dt Sublight Scout

Custom design for Baron Jetson

This scout is usually dropped into a system with one of Baron Jetson's modified 1000dt Bulk Carriers. During the action against Belgardian Sojourn authority, the Baron procured and deployed ten of these with the Particle Beam barbette installed. Three of the first ten of these vessels, numbers 3, 5, & 7, were later refitted with variant engine system noted below.


100dt hull, TL16, H/S=4/4, SL, SS, AF12 BSD. Darrian manufactured, transhipped to Vip (0210, Florian League) for outfitting.
