One battery of fusion guns. Crew=l. TL=14. Fuel=5.8. Agility=6.

Fer-de-lance     Tonnage A, Agility 6, Computer J = 9fib    Armor 0
Gazelle          Tonnage 3, Agility 0, Computer 6 = 6       Armor 3

Strike Cruiser   Tonnage B, Agility 4, Computer E = 5fib    Armor 3
Fighter          Tonnage 0, Agility 6, Computer 3 = 3       Armor 9?

To-hit Information:

Fer-de-lance against Strike Cruiser:
DM 0 for tonnage
DM -4 for agility
DM +4 for computer
Base DM nets out to 0!

3 Laser Batteries at Factor 5 have base to-hit 6.
(DM -1 at long range)

4 Missile Batteries at Factor 3 have base to-hit 5.
(DM -1 at short range)
Beam Point Defense: none?
Nuclear Damper Rating 3: Defends against each missile hit on 10+.

Gazelle against Strike Cruiser:
DM 0 for tonnage
DM -4 for agility
DM +1 for computer
Base DM nets out to -3!

2 Laser Batteries at Factor 4 have base to-hit of 6.
(DM -1 at long range)

2 Particle Accelerator Batteries at factor 1 have base to-hit of 9.

Strike Cruiser against Fer-de-Lance:
DM -1 for tonnage
DM -6 for agility
dm -4 for computer
Base DM nets out to -11!

2 Energy Weapon Batteries at factor 7 has a base to-hit of 5.
DM +2 for energy weapons... they can't hit!

1 Particle Accelerator at factor 9 has a base to-hit of 4.
Still can't hit!

2 Missile Batteries at factor 9 has a base to-hit of 2.
(-1 at short range)
Still can't hit! Doh!

Okay... I was going to analyze this further, but if the Strike Cruiser can't hit the Fer-de-lance, then this is a done deal.

That's two attempts to create an interesting fleet battle and both of them are pointless!

(Were any scenarios or "serious" fleets ever published for High Guard? I have the second volume BFB for JTAS issues... there are articles in there for TCS. I didn't see anything about interesting fleet battles, though....)

(I'm afraid to run the huge ships-- the number of bearing batteries is just insanely large.... Are you really supposed to be playing this with 10+ ships to a side?)
