Default 30-ton military lander, TL12

(originally, I had planned on the military lander for the escort frigate to be a simple variation of the SLV-50 lander on p.237. However, it quickly became obvious that is was too large for it's role. The reduction in size does allow the frigate to carry 20 more tons of fuel for the MHD turbine and a v2 of that ship will be posted later this week).

The LA-8 is a small British and Commonwealth military lander used to transport up to a squad of troops and a small cargo. It is capable of extended endurance although lengthy trips with sull passenger capacity can be uncomfortable. It is armed with a single laser.s

The lander uses a VTOL hybrid lifting body that is lightly armored (2). Drives are stutterwarp sG, air-breathing rocket sF and fuel cells power plant sJ. Standard radiators are fitted. Performance is 1.14 ly/day, tactical speed 2 and acceleration 3G. The rocket has 18 hours of reaction mass and the powerplant 168 hours of fuel.

The pilot and co-pilot sit in a cockpit with a Model 3 computer and advanced military sensors. The lander has a single LL-98 laser in a fixed mount forward. Weapon targeting is handled by an UTES. Ten passenger couches are fitted. Cargo is 7.1 tons. Cost is MLv 17.18.
A generous and sadistic GM,
Brandon Cope
