I'd estimate 400-500 kW. It's just for flavour though, not terribly important. You may find it interesting that something like that is better suited to projectile weapons to offset the power requirement.

What's important (and what I forgot) is the maximum range. For something like a walker it will be fairly short (relative to other vehicles we'll be using, anyway, most Imperial designs seem to be very long-ranged compared to modern ones.) Say... 500 km?

Transporters like the Valkyrie have a range of 2000 km in atmosphere, which is about four times what I'd expect from anything like that built today. So as a general rule (if you're basing it on a modern vehicle), multiply the maximum range by about four.

Maximum Range? You mean how far they can go on a full tank of fuel?

Yeah. It's just for figuring out what sort of a supply chain you'll need if you decide to invade somewhere or whatever. For the most part I don't expect it will be a huge deal due to just how far these things can go.

If you don't want to specify it I'll just assume its something reasonable like around 500km for walkers, 1700km for tanks, 2000km for VTOL, 14000km for stuff like fighters and the like (all depending on scale, of course.)

Okay, new rule because I'm getting confused by some of these designs now;

Tell me what its supposed to do in the name, please. (e.g. "Valkyrie - Airborne Assault Carrier" will do.)

I know, I know, I was hoping it'd be obvious from context, but even I have limits for interpreting obscurities... :P

[hr]

DAC, that Vitality thing is going to be hella expensive if you want that sort of range.
