My take on the missile boat It comes with two missile pod sets one of which is a standard twin concussion missile pod system and the other one a set of heavy ordnance pods for bombs and either heavy rockets or proton torpedoes.



Opinions both good and bad welcome

Will it have a special ability that it doesn't have to discard missile/torpedo cards when it uses them?

Good question. Considering the fact that it is suppose to carry 40 concussion missiles standard and then in the top launchers another either 40 missiles or 30 proton torpedoes or 20 heavy rockets etc. it should be the little ship that keeps on giving but im pretty sure that would unbalance the game just a bit *L*.
Perhaps it does volley fire like a Macross fighter for game purposes and gains a hit bonus or something along those lines but then doesn't have missiles to spare. that would make it lethal in the beginning but after that point the single laser would be its only weapon which might be challenge some would enjoy

Well, I was thinking you could adjust its point value to reflect its missile/torp carrying abilities. It could still only attack with them once per round, and still need to use required TL's and such.
