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.

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! :)
