Does TL 18 antimatter engines(100MW/m3) make the need for jump fuel and the fast burning fusion powerplants that jump engines actually are,obsolete? Recently I noticed that some hydrogen is released in a gas around the ship to help protect it in jump space and as coolant for some process.Taking all of these factors into account, shouldn't we be able to drop most of the weight and tonnage of fuel and j-engines for other more useful things(Guns,BIGGER GUNS [img]graemlins/file_22.gif[/img] ) I also noticed a problem with the fuel consumption for Ic turbines(x2)and fuel cells needing Higrade hydrocarbons.Iknow they use Lhydrogen and L methane but expensive fuels like gas,diesel or alcohol come on.this fuel consumption rate is horrible when u think about planes ,I ran across this problem when trying to do an MBT TL8 M1(560L/4hrs REAL LIFE)1.12MW vs. 336L/hrFF&S both editions.I went on the web and found a site that talks abotu a lot of rocketry from nasa eggheads/traveller fans(thrust,impulse etc.german v2 provides 20-40tons thrust etc.),does any body know similar sites for this stuff
