Medium Gunboat

Medium Gunboat1 (7K)

BACKGROUND

A bombardment type space warship retained by the Zentraadi Forces. It is a vessel that excels in bombardment abilities. The Medium Gunboat is configured so that the main armament is exposed from the inside and is prepared for firing when the warship's bow separates up and down. The gunboat was operated in order to target such things as enemy ships and positions from long range.

Original Description:
By a vessel that excels in bombardment ability, the Medium Gunboat is configured so that the main armament is exposed from the inside and is prepared for firing when the warship's bow separates up and down. The gunboat was operated in order to aim at such things as enemy ships and positions from long distance.

The Gunboat's control room is equipped with a great number of different kinds of equipment and route maps.

Designed for a single main purpose, the Medium Gunboat is primarily a heavy particle beam cannon with engines. It is also the smallest ship equipped with a heavy particle beam cannon and built mainly for large fleet engagements using the particle beam cannon to supplement the Nupetiet-Vergnitz, and Queadol-Magdomilla Class of ships.

MDC BY LOCATION

(1) Main Body                                  50,000

    Outer Hull (per 40ft area)                    150
    Interior walls (per 20ft)                      20
NOTES:
  1. Depleting the MDC of the main body will put the Gun Destroyer out of commission. All internal systems will shut down, including life support and internal gravity. The ship itself will be an unsalvageable floating wreck.
  2. Depleting the MDC of the main engines will force the ship to rely on its secondary engines. Depleting the MDC of the main engines AND secondary engines will leave the ship adrift in space. If in an atmosphere, the ship will crash (destruction of the main engines will render the antigravity system useless due to loss of power).

Medium Gunboat3 (4K)

WEAPON SYSTEMS:

1. HEAVY PARTICLE BEAM CANNON (1):

The most powerful known weapon and the primary weapon and purpose of the Medium Gunship. The cannon can fire a beam up to 192,000 km long and 1.6 km wide that essentially destroys EVERYTHING in its path. The disadvantage of the weapon is the tremendous power it consumes. It takes a full 5 MINUTES (20 melee rounds) to recharge between shots.


2. FORWARD LIGHT LASERS (8):

Designed for forward firelinked volleys. Although compared to the other weapons they are weak, when combined together they can still make an impressive volley of damage.


3. RETRACTABLE LASER TURRETS (10):

The primary anti-warship weapons, (not including the Heavy Particle Beam,) are the retractable laser turrets positionaed across the hull of the Medium Gunboat behind armoured sliding section of the hull. Due to turrets size and lack of agility, the laser turrets have great difficulty in attempting to hit Variable Fighters and other mobile weapons, and have a -12 to hit against mecha, and gain an automatic dodge against blasts from this weapon.


4. RETRACTABLE MISSILE TURRETS (40):

As defence against mecha units that may attempt to attack the ship and for additional Anti-Warship offensive capability the Medium Gunship is equipped with retractable missile turrets.
