Default SW Statblock Thread for Imperial Starfighters

Hello, everyone. I decided to do something for fun with Spaceships: statting out Imperial Starfighters. Be warned that I'm a novice and all are welcome to critique the stats that I've put out for starfighters affiliated with the Galactic Empire. I'll be trying my best to stat out fighters so don't expect it to be canonical. If you wish to correct specific parts of my statblocks on any starfighters, do let me know.

I did say I would write up the Alpha Xg-1 Assault Gunboat... I present to you in this thread the first statblock of many to come soon:

CYGNUS SPACEWORKS ALPHA XG-1 ASSAULT GUNBOAT

Created using the GURPS Spaceship Design Spreadsheet Version 2.0 Release Candidate 10 based on the GURPS Spaceships series of books. http://gurpsland.no-ip.org/#GURPSSpa...ignSpreadsheet

NOTES

Do note that for ammunition in the Gunboat we're referring to XvT: BoP. Assault Gunboats are known to carry any type of warheads; the maximum number of warheads are 12, either solo or twin-linked. The missile launchers are 2 racks; 6 missiles per rack. 1st Major Weapons is Laser Cannon; 2nd Major Weapons is Ion Cannon (designed to disable craft). I don't know how to configure this but if you have any suggestions as to how to change the damage to something where the craft is disabled instead of being destroyed, I'm all ears.

Compact Super Fusion Reactors were put there to increase PP so the pilot could change PP to adjust his Light Force Screen partially or fully frontal or aft. Also, the weapons on the mount could be switched at any time, including the missile launchers.

The Xg-1 is hyperdrive capable. It can make at least 4 jumps, according to the GURPS Imperial Sourcebook. As for the low-thrust or high-thrust, not sure how I'd do that on the spreadsheet.

NOTES

I don't know about the engines in SW. The Bomber is simulated to be a slow bomber but capable of delivering devastating firepower. It carries 12 Photon torpedoes, 12 Concussion Missiles, and 12 Space Bombs, the standard layout for the Bomber. However, the missiles can be swapped out to suit the role per mission.

Created using the GURPS Spaceship Design Spreadsheet Version 2.0 Release Candidate 10 based on the GURPS Spaceships series of books. http://gurpsland.no-ip.org/#GURPSSpa...ignSpreadsheet

NOTES

Fast, nimble, and maneuverable. The TIE Interceptor has two different weapon mounts. One is the solo-, twin-, or quad-linked cannons, and the other is the "Choose 1" option, whether it be ECM (Area Jammer), Tractor Beam), or other types of weapons.

While it goes go at 4Gs, it's to simulate the TIE/in as the faster of the bunch, even if it's more improved than the TIE/Ln Fighter.

I note that you have given the TIE interceptor shields. As far as I am aware this doesn't fit the official information that is given about them.

Unless you just decided it didn't make sense they didn't, which is obviously fine.

The only TIE's which have shield are the TIE/d Defender and the later models of the advanced series, the TIE/ad Avenger).

The TIE Advanced x1, Vader's personal ship, had shields (and a hyperdrive), but that was a limited production ship built to his preferred specifications.

I just watched the original movie (original theatrical release!) last night, and noted the x1 had four thrust nozzles on the back while the regular TIE had two. Does that actually make it a Quad Ion Engine craft, or just two engines with two thrust nozzles per engine (like how X-Wings have been described)?

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't XvT: BoP give TIE/in its shields in specific missions? I could be wrong. I'll take down the shields and give it something else.

I will be working on the TIE/ad and TIE/d in the future and will be adding shielding as appropriate.

By the way, I added myself to your forums. Got some real interesting mathematical questions for you regarding fighters and capital ships.

Check here. It says twin ion engines so it could account for only two engines. I don't know how canon Wookiepedia can be so I just sourced it.

I noticed. :)

Although GURPS Spaceships (or my modification) looks nice, escpecially if the players want to create their own ship), I prefer my old building rules. Just using the information on different sites such as Starwars.com, wookieepedia, and others and noting down the spacecrafts in the old way as in the Basic Set.

But is "twin ion engine" actually "twin (ion engine)" or "(twin ion) engine". In other words, could you have any number of engines that use whatever "twin ion" technology is?
