Default "The ubiquitous Type SN"

In White Dwarf #70, there's a new "bounty hunter" career with a mustering-out benefit of a Type H Hunter ship.

The write-up says it is a variant of "the ubiquitous Type SN". The variant displaces 100t and costs aout MCr37.82.

What is the type SN? Is it a Seeker? Just how ubiqitous is it?

I believe the "type SN" is the Serpent-class scout ship from JTAS #2, but I could not find my JTAS #2 to confirm...

A good thought Don, but I checked, no mention of Type SN in that article, just listed as Type S. And the price is different.

Taking it as the standard LBB5 code Type SN would make it a Scout - Nonstandard. The very antithesis of ubiquitous

It's not ringing any bells for me.

Thanks, fellas. I've done a quick low-quality scan here just to show the plan shape (there's a side view too, but it's a bit obscured):

That one!

I have seen the plans for that before. Somewhere. And that's about the sum total of my knowledge on it

I thought that White Dwarf actually published some (pretty decent) plans for the Bounty Hunter vessel. It was a variant of the standard Type S scout/courier, IIRC.

Wow, I'd forgotten that I knew that!

You'd have to figure that there were a number of ship builders out to get the Imperial contract (or still are) for supplying the IISS with 100dT M2J2 scouts. A lot of those designs would be re-designated for other purposes when the competitors lost out on the contract.

Maybe the Serpent was first, then the Sulieman was selected as a successor, and the others found their way into service as yachts, prospectors, couriers, or even bounty hunters.

Always thought there weren't enough small boys jetting around.

Beautiful plans.

And lots of clever references to movies in there.
