Could somebody help me by, say, working through an example? Eg, a typical large-scale TL10 platform that might or might not detect this SM+2 vessel, when it has its generators, drives, and active sensors turned off (IR signature +0)? Or this tiny vessel's sensors detecting some more typical, SM+8ish, manned vessel? __________________ Thank you for your time, -- DataPacRat "Does aₘᵢₙ=2cē/Θ ?

The trouble is, the armor rules in Pyramid 3/34 are only defined for full-size systems of armor. I tried taking the numbers from 3/34's table, and running them through a best-fit analysis program, which chose 'quintic regression' and gave the numbers: > Smoothed with quintic regression 20: 5.305 19: 4.342 18: 3.594 17: 3.021 16: 2.589 15: 2.267 14: 2.028 13.7: 1.969 13.5: 1.933 13.3: 1.899 13: 1.851 12: 1.717 1: 0.977 The overall equation the analyser spat out is: y = 1.013272 - 0.05964327*x + 0.02570164*x^2 - 0.001971084*x^3 + 0.00003268314*x^4 + 0.000001794768*x^5 ... So, if I go from a baseline of 14 armor systems and 3/34's default 2* multiplier, and go to 13.7 armor systems with a 1.969* multiplier, is anyone going to raise an eyebrow? Does anyone have a, shall we say, saner approach? :) __________________ Thank you for your time, -- DataPacRat "Does aₘᵢₙ=2cē/Θ ? I don't know, but wouldn't it be fascinating if it were?"
