simple Challenge, should be easy.
« on: 17 May 2022, 10:46:13 »
Ingredients:  any advanced tech base, but you have to use a 400 rated fusion engine and Standard, Single Heat sinks.

That is, a Standard 400 rated fusion engine.  You can do anything you want with it otherwise.

Grading: the usual applies, faster for the weight is better, consider either role or bomb-load, and watch your costs.

the tranquility of servitude
better than the animating contest of freedom,
go home from us in peace.
We ask not your counsels or your arms.
Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.
May your chains set lightly upon you,
and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."-Samuel Adams

YUP.

It says "Challenge" right there in the title.

very nice! you remembered that introtech energy weapons make less heat than the advanced models for only a bit of loss in range bands! :)
