Close Defense SDB


I will also post this in the Trojan Reaches Thread on the IMTU Board, but since it's a ship, here it is. I needed a frontier SDB that could fit within the tiny budgets of the nonaligned systems of the Trojan Reach. It is a heavier version of the standard SDB of the THB, for those cases where it may be the only ship in the "navy."

Any comments? (by the way, credit to Falkayn: this was done on his spreadsheet).

The Golf class close planetary defense SDB is built in Tobia System, Tobia Subsector, and is a common sight in the navies of the non-aligned systems beyond Imperial borders in the Trojan Reach. The Golf class delivers considerable bang for the buck, focusing on speed, armor and weaponry at the expense of jump drives and computer power. With only a Model 4 computer system, the Golf class is usually deployed in a mainworld's orbit where it can receive sensor data from the planet's more powerful sensor arrays. The boat can carry a small contingent of marines, but its primary function is to engage and destroy ships in engagements close to the mainworld.
