We Found it on New Dallas
For those of you who haven’t read the write up on New Dallas, the planet had a boneyard where they stored their outdated equipment that was hidden when the nuke that destroyed the capitol city went off and dropped a building on top of the entrance to the old, pre-terraforming living areas. In the lead up to this, much of the modern, or even semi-modern tech was used up fighting the Combine, the Capellans and the League. What I’m looking for here is Retro-tech. Something that would fit in the early to middle Age of War aesthetic, and for each class, I’m going to give an example of what that could be. I request submissions of what you would expect to find in such a site.

The BLT-01 Bullet is a high speed interceptor capable of deploying one nuclear armed ASM per flight, it is backed up by three standard medium lasers for dogfighting.
Wolf wins every fight but one, and in that one he dies, his fangs locked on the throat of his opponent.

How about a nuclear salt water/minimag orion/plasma-core fission drive?  For someone who can't build fusion drives locally, these options might be attractive, if you don't mind quickly/slowly irradiating what you're fighting over.  However, I don't think the RAW support such things, especially for ASFs/smallcraft.

Instead, let's have a typical War of Persuasion era assault shuttle, designed to saturate enemy PD networks and overwhelm the ability of early warships to defend.  too bad about the low speed though...

Used to deploy Platoons of Marines to underway dropships and jumpships, the HRN-01 Harrington could also be used for suborbital insertion of the same Marines as well as mapping and survey work
