SQS-TH-002 Sasquatch speed
« on: 07 March 2023, 14:15:56 »
Somebody brought this up on Sarna.

TRO:3055 Upgrade has the SQS-TH-002 Sasquatch with an experimental 425 XXL engine and 4/6 movement. Solaris: The Reaches has the -001 carrying a 340 and moving 4/6 as well, while the TRO:3055U fluff notes the smaller engine and lower speed. The running speed is 63.8 km/h in S:TR and 65 km/h in TRO:3055U, but 6 MP translates to 65 km/h for all designs.

Is this an editing error for the speed/engine size or is the experimental engine producing a whopping 1.2 km/h speed increase?

The heavy shield used by the Sasquatch imposes a -1 reduction to ground MP; as such, its speed is reduced from 5/8 down to 4/6, giving it the final in-universe speed of 65 kph.

If there is an error, it is in The Reach's assertion that the -001 moves 63.8 kph; that should read 64.8 to align with all other 4/6 designs.
