Pulp Hunters

A Traveller20 PBEM

The Grav Pickup


I started with the same 6000vl chassis, but put in more Grav DTUs. This gave this air/raft a cruising speed of 100kph & max speed of 200kph.
I added a pintle mount (set on the roof, just ahead of a hatch to the enclosed cabin), a sturdy (str 40) winch, two high powered spotlights (300m range), a 500km 2-way radio and a layer of armor (AR 1).

It has room for four in the enclosed cabin.

Agility 0
AC: 9 (-2 size, +1 AR)
Max Speed: 200kph
Fast Speed: 150kph
Cruising Speed: 100kph
Very Slow Speed: 20kph
Acceleration: 20kph

Good for field work. It's a bit sturdier (armored), using the winch you can handle cargo easier and raise/lower gear in spots too small for it land in. It's got a tad more cargo space than the standard air/raft.
As for the pintle mount, well...three characters in my PBEM game have the Combat Rifleman feat, so I should give 'em something to play with.
