Later FASA, FM:FS 5th Crucis Lancers. Thugees ambush and kill two entire battalions worth of MechWarriors and tankers but leave the equipment. So the AFFS/C just shrug and throw new bodies into the machines. Not even pausing to clean them to take down the personal pictures apparently, they then scratch their heads when the new guys start getting sick after using the equipment the Thugees were crawling over for days.
It's been resolved?  Is there an explanation for the error? ???
Yep, that's exactly how you play a design like that!  :thumbsup:
Aerospace Combat / Re: What to call the "sensors" officer?

Sorry I'm late!

For the radars and such, the current Department Head title is "Combat Systems Officer (CSO)", at least for big enouigh ships.

On smaller ships, my community's DIVOs are called "SIGWO" for "Signals Warfare Officer".

Radar and other pure sensors are generally lumped into the Operations Department.

Ultimately it's up to the CO how they organize their ship.  Navies over the centuries always default to that...  ^-^
Cheers. Thanks for the update!

Great images of the Fitter, chanman. Always loved the brutal aesthetic, even if it wasn't shall we say, a world-beater. The black Polish bird is quite striking. "RAF impression..."  ;D

Here's another:

Ahem, point of order, Vonshroom?  "Rate of Fire" isn't as important as volume of fire.  Particularly in the machinegun role.  too high a rate? and you run out of ammo without doing very much.  Miniguns are typically vehicle mount (outside of hollywood movies) because you need the bigger platform to carry all the ammo.

Also to handle the recoil.  Jesse Ventura was a big, jacked dude when he costarred in Predator and he could barely carry the minigun, and the recoil (while firing blanks) was so strong that he needed to have someone standing out of view of the camera pushing on his back to avoid being knocked over by it.
