Title: Obtuse Support Vehicle Insights?
Post by: Goose on 18 June 2022, 17:02:01
I know they are cheaper, always; But I'm wondering what … jobs might be worth printing a record sheet for?

For instance: I think I just figured out choppers always need to be combat vehicles.

And maybe Thumpers work best as SVU?  :-\

What have y'all noticed?

Robotic mining machines.  For when your PC group gets time-shoved and now has to destroy the machine quickly before someone (https://www.sarna.net/wiki/Simon_Cameron#Peace_Tour_and_Death) gets hurt.

I can see them working as support vehicles, for example having a couple flitting over the map doing CSAR work.

If they're a target (on the map), they need a record sheet...  ^-^

Speaking of, trying to build some earthmover Quadmechs in MegaMekLab had me rather incensed at the lack description for Equipment in Tac Ops/Tech Manual/Total Warfare...
HOW AM I SUPPOSE TO SATISFY MY PRACTICAL GIANT ROBOT AUTISM IF I CAN'T EVEN FIGURE OUT HOW A DUMPER IS SUPPOSE TO WORK?!?!

Don't worry, it'll be covered in a "later publication"... it'll just be over 15 years later at this point ;D
Jokes aside, most of that stuff can be handled by a good GM adapting existing rules.
