Alpha Strike Halo Pelican Line
« on: 07 December 2017, 15:44:25 »
Hello. Working on creating the Pelican into a AS VTOL unit.
Since there are multiple variants, I chose to start with the simple first.

That would be Troop Deployment with Pod.
As such, it has light weapons in form of small autocannon to represent a nose-mounted gun. Being a troop transport variant, it is slow. I did the math, and figured it can do IT48 same as the Zugvogel E model.
What Im having an issue now is determining its point value.
Here is what I have so far.
SZ3
MV 4V
Short 2
Medium/Long 1
Armor 6
Structure 2
Special LG,IT48
I have read the AS Core and Companion, and cant seem to find the info I need to complete it. Any help would be appreciated. Had originally used the Planetlifter, but lacked the ability to deploy infantry and have them fight right off the bat.

Where can the CBT stats be found?

I'm guessing he's trying to translate this.  If so, it should probably be a WiGE instead.

Nope both wrong. Though the Boeing Pelican is cool.
Try to make this instead

I'd ditch the VTOL angle completely and go with making it a Small Craft.

http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Mark_VII_Landing_Craft  What about using this as a base. Its a small craft that still has VTOL ability. Would still keep its ability to deploy infantry and for them to fight right out, and still have the traits of a small craft.

It's a bit big to not be a support vehicle though-it's five hexes wide and four long, and can carry a whole company of assault mechs.
