Buccaneer Pocket WarShip conversion; check my math?
« on: 23 January 2023, 01:21:53 »
Doing a refit of a standard Buccaneer into a Pocket WarShip.  I'm not really into AeroSpace, can somebody check my assumptions?  Its for a project, and even if it isn't very effective, it should at least not be riddled with errors like being over-sinked, etc.

I decided it should have some extra cabins and escape pods; figured sooner or later they'd be needed, and this wasn't going to be the Titanic all over again.


Overview
  Once just another civilian ship among many, the Wandering Minstrel was selected by the Imperator and representatives of Hadrian Mechanized Industries of Pompeii to provide the shell of the first of the Hegemony‚Äôs Pocket WarShips, undergoing nearly a decade of refits and assembly.

Capabilities
  Built around a Heavy Sub-Capital Cannon, the Monitor-class can perform most duties required of it; Able to operate a Maniple of ASF as escorts, it carries a single boarding craft and a Contuberim of BA troopers to capture enemy vessels.
  The Monitor-class also carries defensive weapons, Bays of Large- and Medium Pulse lasers designed to accurately target enemy ASF close to the DropShip, and paired AMS in every arc as a last-ditch defense from enemy Capital missiles. 
  Despite the Heavy SCC, the Monitor-class is not intended to be an offensive weapon; as the name implies, it is intended to fight as part of a flotilla, defending later Pocket WarShip classes at close range from Assault DropShips and AeroSpace Fighters
