Notes

  • Values listed for Price and Mass do *not* include any Shuttles.
  • The exact performance (range) and fuel use of the jump drive, as well as the power and fuel use of the maneuver drive, vary according to the displacement tonnage, as shown below.

    Tonnage Jump Range & Fuel Maneuver Power & Fuel
    100 tons 3 pc.; 280 m^3 (93.333/pc.) 50 MW; 6.25 m^3/G-turn
    150 tons 3 pc.; 420 m^3 (140/pc.) 75 MW; 9.375 m^3/G-turn
    200 tons 2 pc.; 420 m^3 (210/pc.) 100 MW; 12.5 m^3/G-turn
    250 tons 1 parsec; 350 m^3 125 MW; 15.625 m^3/G-turn
    300 tons 1 parsec; 420 m^3 150 MW; 18.75 m^3/G-turn

  • Relic high-tech jump drives could be installed to improve range (and fuel economy; at 100 tons displacement) and mass. (Imagine salvaging TL-15 Jump-4 drives from the classic 100-ton Express Boat.)
  • Turret sockets on the Shuttles are treated as being at locations 6, 7, 8, and 9, respectively, when docked; thus, they can all fire into arcs 1, 2, 3, and 4.
