For what it is worth, this was being used in my traveller Universe for a Lunion campaign. The crew assignments were different than required by Traveller for the most part, because I look at this as an exercise in figuring out what you really need for a 24/7 operation plus actual security needs. Having a platoon of Marines handle perimeter security makes a heck of a lot more sense than the guidelines used in Traveller itself.

Below is an email that I sent to two players in the campaign utilizing the ship:

<begin paste>
The Destroyer has jammers aboard that permit it to act as “blip enhancers”. In plain English, it permits you to seem larger than you really are. A size 11 hull (5,000 dTons) can appear to be anywhere from 5,000 dTons (its real size) on up to 750,000 dTons in size.

In addition, the ship is loaded with Electronic Warfare Drones. Their purpose is to act as area jammers with a rating of 5. This is the penalty to the enemy sensor operator’s skill roll when trying to lock on with targeting lasers. EW Drones are not “stackable”. In other words, once launched by the ship, the missile cruises alongside the ship (taking a dedicated communications/missile turret out of commission). Having TWO missiles do not make the difficulty any higher than would one.

Spoofing: The Electronic Warfare suite permits your destroyer to spoof enemy sensor operators into seeing up to 6 separate targets. Having to divide their fire amongst 6 targets to insure that at least some of their attacks hit you is of course, beneficial. They could of course, specify which of the six targets they’re firing at, and hope that they pick the correct target (giving you a 5 in 6 chance of being missed automatically!). Flip side is, if they pick/guess correctly, then all of their targeted attacks will potentially hit your hull. Do NOT Neglect the health and attention span of your EW officer. 

While discussing the loadout of the ship’s weapons, <name redacted> and I discussed a potential “tactical maneuver”. It requires that the ship dump ALL of its Jump fuel during battle. In so doing, the ship loses its ability to enter jump space, but it grants a roughly .5 G increase in the ship’s tactical top acceleration. You can of course dump half the fuel and only get a lesser increase in top acceleration – but you maintain your capability for entering jump space.

Below is a table showing the increase based on how much fuel you dump:

Top Acceleration with Jump 4 Fuel: 5.04 G
Top Acceleration with Jump 3 Fuel: 5.19 G
Top Acceleration with Jump 2 Fuel: 5.35 G
Top Acceleration with Jump 1 Fuel: 5.52 G
Top Acceleration with Jump 0 Fuel: 5.70 G

</end Paste>

I suggest listing the weapons a bit differently. List that number and type of turrets and bays, then list how they are organized into batteries.
A generous and sadistic GM,
