Default TauOnline World 2 [Designs]

Post your unit designs here (if any). Rather than coming up with a detailed cost system, I've decided to simply eyeball new designs. Feel free to either detail the vehicle's systems and what not, or just note its role. If your vehicle includes a feature that you think is advantageous or lends it to a specific role, mention it and we can decide on some tradeoffs.

Stuff in brackets at the beginning is just a name so we know what we're talking about when we describe what's armoured or replaced in variants, etc.

Also, "resistant" implies that something is virtually immune to the weapon in question.

For the sake of my sanity, please use something like the following formats;

Notice: You don't need to specify comm units unless they're capable of communicating across the planet, as even hand-held radios can communicate at ranges of up to 200 km, and this is the 41st millenium. So they're just flavour text, otherwise.

Interesting idea, Zen, but I don't think you could reasonably expect to power anything like a walker (much less a lascannon or plasma cannon) with a 100 kilowatt powerplant. A V12 engine is nearly 500, after all, and walkers are quite power intensive.

Bah. Well, assume the lascannons and what not just draw it from charge packs. The drawback will be reduced ammunition capacity.

Also, Novae, you are consistently spelling 'Hull' with three l's. :P

[hr]

You can also use this as a "dumping ground" for personal weapons. For example;

Name: R19A3 Support Lasgun
Description: 300 kilowatt lasgun with expanded 1 megajoule charge pack (100 shots.)

Name: R19A1 Combat Lasgun
Description: 300-3000 kilowatt lasgun. 600 kilojoule charge pack (6-60 shots depending on fire mode.)

I'm drawing this based on the Sentinel and I'm not quite as apt in engineering designs as you, Novae or Rav. So, how much should it be? And yeah, those weapons are hand-held so they have ammunition clips.
