Modified Scout/Courier (Type S)

So, one of my house rules is that the Book 2 ship design system uses the Book 5 fuel requirements for power plants, namely Power plant fuel = 0.01MPn, where M is the hull size of the ship and Pn the the power plant number. I figure if the Book 2 rules are for "off-the-shelf" ships, the fuel consumption would be the same as for custom ships.

So here I present my updated standard Scout/Courier (Type S), using these house rules.

Scout/Courier (Type S)

TL-9, 100-ton hull-streamlined, Jump-2, Manuever-2, Power plant-2, fuel scoops, 24 tons of fuel tankage, 8 week operating range, bridge, computer model 1-bis, 1 hardpoint, 1 double turret, 4 staterooms, 1 emergency low berth (holds 4), Air/raft, and 18 tons of cargo. MCr 29.52 (with standard design discount).

The extra space was allocated to cargo and an emergency low berth for up to four people.
