Been checking in at least once a day to see if youíve posted any more previews, so I guess you could say Iím excited!

Looks like a huge one, especially if all those white round things are turrets, larger than the Moltke even?

Unfortunately, I've had trouble posting images in forums lately. Something seems to be odd or hinky with Imgur over the last couple of days.

Lion is a 5000-ton ship which is something you can do a lot easier with the higher technology level of the Earth Sector setting.

Not really. You should be able to use it without having the ES book though, to fully understand it, you might need to grab Tech Update:2350 even though I think most of it is fairly self-explanatory.

Well, now that Imgur is working again.... here's the preview that I've posted elsewhere.

Ok, so one of my very first Traveller books was Ships of Clement Sector 3:Moltke Class Cruisers. It was the first large warship I got a detailed look at, and naturally it left an impression. Today, reading the Lion ship book, I'm reminded of that same warm, fuzzy feeling of awesomeness... Great book, amazing ship! And it uses Eagle and Meteor smallcraft, some of my favourite designs! Especially the Eagle, that bird is gorgeous.

Serious firepower, as befits a battlecruiser, but also surprisingly solid defence considering the design philosophy of said ship type. If anything, torpedo ammo is perhaps a bit on the low side, and the ship could perhaps use a fresher or two within the office space section. The torpedo situation is easily solved with tenders/supply ships and only really an issue on solo assignments, and to be fair the missile reserves are vast so it's not like it's lacking ordnance.

Great product, 5/5!

Thanks for the kind words. I'll pass them along to the author.
