Tigress class
 
How big is the Tigress? Are her dimensions listed anywhere? Other than ACS are dimensions for any of the capital ships available?

If memory serves, there's a section in GT:Starships dealing with the Tigress class. It includes dimensions, a cutaway diagram, and other goodies.

You memory serves you well. On p. 100, based on the scale shown, it looks like the sphere proper is about 240m in diameter, the engines in the rear section adding about another 60m.

It's basically a sphere.

Volume is 14x500,000 = 7,000,000m^3

Volume of a sphere = 4/3.pi.r^3

So the radius is = cube root of (0.75.volume/pi)

Which I get to be 118.67m, this is the radius. So diameter is 237.34m.

Maths first thing in the morning - got to love Traveller :)

I can either spend ~$6.00 on Warehouse23 for a PDF, or $227 on Amazon for a hard copy. Neat.

I asked because in a render I found somewhere online the vessel, compared to something like a Beowulf, wasn't the monster that I thought it might be for a new adventure seed on my blog. It's still big, but well...thanks anyway.

Or, you can spend about $35.00 at FFE and get the GURPS Traveller CD-ROM #2 (GT:Starships) and get both the sourcebook and a bunch of other sourcebooks and deckplans for GT vessels published for GURPS Traveller by SJGames.

Interesting, and a deal considering what those items are going for individually. But the Paypal window is requiring I type in my information all over again, when on other sites all I have to do is log in and Paypal takes care of the rest. Oh well. Few things are easy in life.

Thanks for the link.

Fixed the paypal problem. I think was clicking on the wrong tab. Still not sure whether or not I'm going to use the Tigress in the next seed offering. Probably not.

I'm curious if the "eye" design was an intended aesthetic for her configuration, or whether it was really just something that came to be because of the designer's imagination.
