Mosquito Light Escort

design by Idiot/Savant


As presented, this was a J4 G4 1000 DspT escort, armed with 6 missile and 4 sand turrets, and with 104 DspT of cargo space. The converted version maintains the original socket layout, but substitutes 4 300 Mj laser barbettes for some of the missiles. Cargo space is reduced to 82 DspT, providing minimal hanger space for one craft, or alternatively docking ring space for two. A minimal hanger is also provided for a 40 DspT utility vehicle, usually a pinnace.

Possible modifications: put the Pinnace in a docking ring, rather than a hanger - but does this allow other craft to be carried?
