Pole Cat (Fusion Ferret)
« on: 10 April 2022, 08:29:22 »
Playing around with Fractional Accounting, it seems it doesn't cost that much more to drop a Savannah Master engine in a Ferret, and you get a little more armor.  Cutting the MG ammo back to 25 shots also gets you a bit more.  Enough, in fact, to take a Medium Laser from any direction and not explode.  Of course, all that extra armor also jacks up the price.

SAW doesn't quite do Fractional Accounting right, but the cost is correct because Controls and Standard Armor cost the same.  BV, not so much, but I'm not sure how far off it is.  A 'slick' version could carry three tons of cargo internally, or eight tons slung at half speed (if they ever let VTOLs carry external cargo again; if it's back and I missed an errata, please let me know!).
