There is an X-Boat Tender in The Forgotten War, but it has been slightly modified by pirates.

I know I did build them both years ago. All I seem to be able to find is a saved HGS Beta version of the X-Boat I was working on. Looks mostly finished. Naturally I did not optimize it, preferring to attempt to recreate the spirit of the original with the new rules. Here it is:

Code:
Ship: XB-20-01       Architect: Journeyman Design Bureau

USP       XB-12404D1-000000-00000-0             100 Tons
Bar                                              Crew: 1
Bat                                               TL: 13

Base Cost MCr 116.000
Architects Fee: MCr 1.160
Cost in Quantity: MCr 92.800


Detailed Description (T20 Design)

HULL
100 Cone Configuration - 75 Structure Points

CREW
Pilot

ENGINEERING
Jump-4, 0G Manuever, 8EP Power Plant, Agility 0

AVIONICS
Bridge, Model/4fib Computer(backup x1)
Model/4 Sensors (backup x1)
Model/2 Communications (backup x1)

HARDPOINTS
1 Hard point - No Turret - see Design Comments

FUEL
42 Tons Fuel (4 parsecs jump and 7 days endurance)
No Fuel Scoops, No Fuel Purification Plant

MISCELLANEOUS
2 Staterooms, 1 Commo Suite, 1 Ton Cargo

USER DEFINED COMPONENTS
None

CONSTRUCTION TIME
38 Weeks Singly, 30 Weeks in Quantity

DESIGN COMMENTS
The Commo Suite is installed as a Laboratory and handles all the X-Boat
E-mail traffic.
The hard point does not mount a turret normally and is used for 1ton of
hard mail.
While streamlined the ship has no maneuver drive. It could theoretically
make a safe atmospheric entry and hard landing if close enough to a world.
The oversized power plant permits rapid charging of the jump drive and
quick turnaround. There is only enough fuel to see the ship through jump.
I can probably throw together a classic tender later today.

You're welcome Mike, sorry for the delay on the Tender, it fought me, then stuff came up, retackling it fresh came out more the way I remember but still not quite 100%. Good enough though

Naturally if you wanted, you could just take any CT HG design and it should be pretty much compatible with T20

Now then, first a caveat, this Tender is not your father's Tender. The X-Boat Tender is one of a very few (or the only) that I think is simply wrong.

How do I mean that? Well Jump 1 for a ship that has to get out to systems that serve J4 X-Boats. How does it do that? Very slowly (J1 at a time using the cavernous hold for extra fuel storage)? That's silly, imo. Especially when there is room for J4. I also envision the Tender doing SAR for missing X-Boats (rare as that is) and needing higher jump to do that. And of course in wartime it would be much more valuable an asset if it could keep up with the fleet. It can manage J4 using demountable tanks in the cavernous hold and still carry a single X-Boat (tough maintenance is not possible). And since it has J4, and the required powerplant, why not M4 as well to speed up chasing down those X-Boats as they pop in.

The extra Engineers for the added drives are not normally engaged in that much maintenance on the Tender's jump drive, but they are kept busy working on the X-Boats.

So, my version of the X-Boat Tender:

Code:
Ship: XT-20-10       Architect: Journeyman Design Bureau

USP       XB-A3442D2-000000-00000-0              1 KTons
Bar
Bat

Base Cost MCr 559.610
Architects Fee: MCr 5.596
Cost in Quantity: MCr 447.688


Detailed Description (T20 Design)

HULL
1,000 Cylinder Configuration - 100 Structure Points

CREW
Pilot, Navigator, 6 Engineers, Medic, Commander

ENGINEERING
Jump-4, 4G Manuever, 42 EP Powerplant, Agility 0

AVIONICS
Bridge, Model/4fib Computer(backup x1)
Model/4 Sensors (backup x1)
Model/2 Communications (backup x1)

HARDPOINTS
3 Hard points - No Turrets - see Design Comments

CRAFT
Capacity for 4 100ton ships - see Design Comments

FUEL
142 Tons Fuel (1 parsecs jump and 28 days endurance)
40 Tons of additional fuel for X-Boat refuelling
On Board Fuel Scoops, On Board Fuel Purification Plant

MISCELLANEOUS
10 Staterooms, 20 Low Berths, 2 Engineering Shops, 1 Mechanical Shop,
1 Commo Suite, 60 Tons Cargo (maintenance and repair parts)

USER DEFINED COMPONENTS
None

CONSTRUCTION TIME
120 Weeks Singly, 96 Weeks in Quantity

DESIGN COMMENTS
The Commo Suite is installed as a Laboratory and handles all the X-Boat
E-mail traffic.
The hard points do not mount a turret normally.
The ship is streamlined and may skim fuel but usually employs scheduled
delivery of fuel in posted systems and purifies on board.
The service bays can carry 4 X-Boats but is more often limited to 2
while undergoing maintenance and service to allow working room.
The X-Boat Tender is effectively a Class B Starport for up to 2 X-Boats
at a time, without the shipyard capability.
If there are any questions on either design fire away. I know I rushed the posting of them and what seems obvious to me might not to anyone else.
