How would you model large naval hovercraft?
« on: 19 March 2018, 19:41:22 »
The support vehicle rules only permit hovercraft of 100 tons and that at a sharply diminishing rate of return.

How could large naval hovercraft; like the various Russian landing craft and SM.4 Hover Ferry be built under BT rules? Could a larger Hover-Warship be built?
Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries

These, in the day when heaven was falling,      Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
The hour when earth's foundations fled,         They stood, and earth's foundations stay;
Followed their mercenary calling,               What God abandoned, these defended,
And took their wages, and are dead.             And saved the sum of things for pay.

Yep..

Think outside the box BH... WIGEs.

Up to 240 tons, works like a heavy hover, but more stable.

Pg. 55, TW has the rules.

I've been very bad because I've already found I can exploit an oversight in my spreadsheet to create 240+ ton WIGE.

By the rules can I have them operate as a large hovercraft would? Stop? Start? Reverse? I thought WIGE really had to *fly*?
