Tramp Warship
« on: 26 November 2022, 15:41:08 »
Here I go again, converting another standard core jumpship into a warship by knocking three lightyears off of the jump range in order to free up tonnage.
This time it's the Tramp class jumpship. The normal Tramp class is actually pretty good, but I thought that it probably could use some more endurance, some more range, some more capability because when you're way out in the boonies, you essentially need to rely on yourself because no help is coming.

The primitive jumpship template gives me another facing that the normal jumpship template doesn't have so I put another set of ERLL and AMS in those.
Also I added AC-2s to augment the anti-asteroid job, because sometimes there might be an object too big to melt that you might want to start diversion early on so you shoot it to nudge it away. A few milliradians of diversion can mean that the object instead misses by miles.

And also, 4 more smallcraft.
And 6 ASF so that the Tramp crew can actually properly defend themselves against normal pirate attacks.

And there's even more cargo space for supplies or even for things like facilities for spacers to enjoy. A mini-mall perhaps. Or a botanical garden. Or hydro/aquaponics lab to get some fresh veg into your diet. Because on a long circuit, fresh veggies are luxuries.

I might recommend Laser AMS vice the ammo hungry kind...  8)

Oh no. How terrible.
