SOAR with me
« on: 04 October 2018, 01:40:52 »
Has anyone ever gotten the SOAR search and rescue vtol to work within the rules from TechManual?  I’ve tried building it as a support vehicle and end up with 3.5 tons left over and the range calculations don’t match.   As far as I can tell you can’t build a combat vehicle with commercial armor (BAR 4).

Just quickly retried the chassis and range calculations and I get them bang on. For the chassis did you remember the x2 modifier due to the environmental sealing?

Can you provide a page reference to the original source?  I'll take a look at it if you can give me something to work backward from.

Chris,

Partially yes, but it looks a little confused. Will go through it tomorrow with working out unless anyone beats me to it.

Right here we go:

The Soar is a 15t, Tech Level C support vehicle VTOL.

Chassis: 0.25 (medium VTOL base chassis) x 1.15 (TL C) x 2 (environmental sealing mod) x 15 (tonnage) = 8.625, which rounds up to 9
Engine: 0.0025 (medium VTOL base engine) x 68 (support vehicle movement factor) x 1.2 (fuel cell engine weight multiplier) x 15 (tonnage) = 3.06, which rounds up to 3.5
Fuel: 0.5
Armour: 15 (points) x 0.032 (weight per point at TL C) = 0.48 tons, which rounds up to .5
Equipment: 4 Paramedic Gear = 4 x 0.25 = 1
6 Passenger seats = 6 x 0.075 = .45
Cargo: 0.05

Adding that up we have 9 + 3.5 + 0.5 + 0.5 + 1 + 0.45 + 0.05 = 15 tons 

Hope that helps,

Chris
