Title: Question about the Aurora
Post by: Hellraiser on 16 December 2021, 17:10:37
Hey all,  I'm trying to reconcile what Sarna says about the Aurora & I think its got to have some typos.

Specifically it mentions 164 tons of cargo in the main body & then 154 in the variant descriptions.
Assuming the 164 is wrong.

Also, I can't seem to make the math work for the Battle Armor Variant & Combined Arms Variant cargo bay pod layouts.
Anyone have access to the RS3075UnAbr-Cutting Edge that can confirm the layout of the 4 pods?

It seems like there is either not enough BA/Infantry in the descriptions or the Cargo #s are also off in those descriptions too.

BA seems to work for me. 4 Mech bays = 600 tons.

8 light vehicle bays = 400 tons. 24 squads = 192 tons (24 x 8). 2 bays with 4 tons of cargo = 8 tons = 600 tons. Two Bays have 3 vehicles each, then 2 BA bays have 1 vehicle and 12 squads and 4 tons of cargo.

CA 10 light bays = 500 tons 48 tons of infantry and 52 tons of cargo. Sarna lists 202 tons of cargo, but I think it should be 206.

Okay so I just realized from your math what I had done wrong w/ the BA.   That one is on me, helps if you have the right starting BA tonnage.


The other question is what is the composition of the 48 tons of Infantry for the Combined Arms?

5-Foot
6-Jump
7-Motor

24 Tons per cargo pod.

12 Tons could be 2x6 or 5+7.

The infantry bays aren't that specific. They're literally stat'd as 24 tons each rather than split up into types of bays.
