According to Solomani & Aslan by DGP, a Solomani Sundowner-class Free Trader has 1944 kl of cargo space. In MegaTraveller terms, that's 144 displacement tons.

FWIW some other stats:
Crew = 4
Staterooms = 13
Jump 2
Maneuver 2

Is the ship mentioned, as sourced from the DGP book different from the 400Ton Free Trader (Type SA) described in the GDW Traveller Alien Module 6-Solomani ?

If not, it declares the cargo hold capacity as 160 tons.

And checking in Mongoose's Third Imperium -Alien Module Five-Solomani, the Sundowner-Class Free Trader notes the cargo bay as set at 163 tons.

I don't have my books handy, but IIRC it's the same ship. Just the adaptation to MT needs some more volume, so reducing cargo tonnage.

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.

If the MT version's fuel numbers are still monolithic, the ship should be adjustable by late MT techniques to regain the lost cargo volume.

160 ... 163 ... whatever, as long as I get close to the actual figure, I'm good. I have to ask my silent partner what he thinks.

thanks for the responses

Very much appreciated.
