To all who have Traveller opinions. (Thats all of us right?) I have a question about close escorts in general.
Since the Gazelle's first flight date is 1086 according to the Gazelle article in JTAS #3, and that the article states that "Thousands of close escorts have been built in the past several centuries, ....", just what do they tend to look like? Do they all have drop tanks? (I was always of the unfounded opinion that drop tanks were a new thing with the Gazelles.) Are they always 3 or 4 hundred tons? Always have a particle barbett? The Gazelle only has lasers and particle accelerators do any other classes have missles?
What do people think? Since the Gazelle post dates T20 but the close escort as a common ship does not, just what do they look like?
As a side question the Fiery class is a modifyed Gazelle, are there any gunned escorts before the Fiery?
