Default Re: [Spaceships] SS Mecha vs. HT/UT Tanks, and 'ships vs. jets

Looking at the write-ups for the F-22 it got me thinking about my own questions on space fighters based off the modern model. Is it pretty typical to model a weapon bay as a "Hanger" and external hard points as an "External Clamp" and hand wave away the details of them actually carrying weapons? And for that matter, might this be addressed in Spaceships 7?

well once SS7 comes out to e23 I'm sure this thread will be modified.
All these lasers and blasters. But still, you can't beat a slugthrower with hyperdense ammo.

Tried making a UT Light Battle Tank with the new SS rules, including the official optional armour density option. End result is actually pretty close to the stats found in Ultra-Tech.

Changing the (single) 2-PP Tracked Drivetrain to a single system worth of Robot Legs changes Acceleration and Move from 2 yards per second squared & 20 yards per second to 5 & 5 respectively. However, Hnd/SR changes from -3/5 to +3/1. That's an improvement of +6 to Dodge. With Driving (Mecha) of 12, this grants an average Dodge of 9, which is kinda OK; with an ace driver at Driving-16, it becomes 11, which is nothing to sneeze at. (For comparison, a tank will have a Dodge of 3 at skill-12 and 5 at skill-16.)

I'll take a look at the MBT found in HT a bit later.

I made a TL8 Main Battle Tank based on the Spaceships rules a while ago. You can find it here.
