HELP: What is the cargo for...
« on: 17 September 2023, 14:19:11 »
Ares Landing Craft and it's variants.

https://www.sarna.net/wiki/Ares_Landing_Craft#Variants

I can read...

But II, III, IV, V and VI are missing..

Anyone got numbers?

II added 3 LL+ heatsinks
III added 1 LL + heatsinks, better armor and larger engine
IV - VI are unknown

Wanting official records but MML doesn't show any, neither sarna's links.

Any help from the peanut gallery?

Thanks,

I think it would an evolutionary incremental marking. Its an old design so upgrading armor, changing engines, adjusting equipment (from lasers to missiles), maybe some kind of artillery carrier (The Type IV Arrow IV Launcher).

I did a whole series of "Landing Craft" but tied them to the most efficient engine sizes (so they look nothing like the Ares).

I can see that, just like CGL, wanting to keep the history alive and complete.

Like how they fixed 1st and 2nd Successor Wars, the Dark Ages and the future IlClan.

Because, not only does it allow players to use them in their campaigns, either era specific or other.

Heck, I can see models where the number just added better components like the Drost IIa/b.

Better engines, Armor and upgraded weapon components.

" We added heated toilet seats and Cyro-Gen cupholders to chill that subsy beverage choice of yours. Our Anti-Gravity Micro-Fiber carpet is stain resistance, soil resistance and comes in a rainbow of colours! "

Or something...

I'm looking at 1,2,3 and 7(7C) for know...
