Tiny VTOL squad transport
« on: 13 January 2018, 23:27:07 »
So, err, it can carry 7 guys w jump packs or 10 guys on foot, three VTOLs per platoon.  The 0.5t cargo space actually represents pintle mounts on each side w up to 500kg of medium infantry support weapons and ammo.

Equipment
500kg Pintle mount weapons

Carrying Capacity:  Troops - 1.0 tons     

You can actually do this on 4 tons if you reduce armor to 0.5t, and only allocate 700kg to infantry, leaving 300kg for pintle mounted weapons. MPs go up to 18/27, cost to 40k c-bills, BV50.

That looks a lot like a Ferret to me...

Eh, just call it a variant... there can never be too many Ferret variants!

Speaking of variants... here's a fusion powered one that can provide decent protection to a single squad.  Granted, it needs fractional accounting to get there, but it's still quite cheap (just over 68,000 C-Bills).  SAW won't quite be able to reproduce it because it doesn't apply fractional accounting to the controls for some reason.
