(Answered) Transport Bays Question
« on: 03 February 2011, 17:16:31 »
I understand that the weight of transport bays includes the bunking for the transported units crew and support crew ie. A mech bays weight includes bunking for the mechwarrior and his techs.

Does the room that is provide for the support crew include the full technical team (7 men) per StratOps or does it include only enough room for the single chief tech?

Looking at bay personnel stats in TRO 3057rev seems to not provide enough for all individuals if its for the full tech team. Like the Leopard lists 12 bay personnel which would seem to indicate 6 pilots (4 mechs, 2 Aero) and 6 techs.

Obviously I understand that the stats in 3057rev are not based on Techmanual construction and the TRO predates the rules in StratOps for Tech teams.

Some insight from someone in the know would be helpful.

Greetings,

TechManual Errata added a column to the Bay Table to include the number of personnel each bay type carries. This varies by bay type. A short answer is, no Mech bays do not carry an entire Tech Team, only one pilot and one tech (if the pilot has other quarters, two techs).

Note- This same information can be found in Tactical Operations.

Best,
