I have created a spreadsheet to automate the contract generation process in the Force Operations chapter of CO and noticed a few things.
There are 2 ways to be reimbursed for some amount of travel expenses in the contract rules.
1. Payment of 1.0% of the value of a DropShip if it is regularly risked in combat.
2. Under Transport Payment section of supplemental contract terms a unit may be reimbursed a portion of their expenses if they don't own DropShips or JumpShips.
I think you should get reimbursed under the Transport Payment terms regardless of whether or not the unit owns its DropShips or not, but there is a way to get around this.
If a unit has its own DropShips and/or JumpShips set them up as an independent unit in a manner like a wholly owned subsidiary company. The parent company owns and controls the subsidiary but there is legal separation so the lawyers can count them as independent of the parent.
Thoughts on the rules and the work around?
