Modified Far Trader

Another Book 2 redesign of a classic ship, this time the Far Trader from Supplement 7: Traders and Gunboats. My version of the Book 2 starship construction rules uses the Book 5 power plant fuel consumption rules (i.e. power plant fuel = 0.01MPn, where M is the hull size and Pn is the power plant number).

Far Trader

200-ton hull-streamlined, Jump-2, Maneuver-1, Power plant-2, fuel scoops, 44 tons of fuel tankage, bridge, computer model 1-bis, 2 hardpoints, 2 double turrets (no weapons installed), 10 staterooms, 4 low berths, 3 emergency low berths, air/raft, 63 tons of cargo space. 4 crew. MCr 54.27. (including standard design discount).
