What is the purpose of two Hit Results Charts?
One for Small Ship targets and one for Large ship Targets...

It appears that the target size Chart difference is simply 'equal to' a die roll or column shift modifier ???

Steve,

The damage allocation is a little different for the small ship targets. IIRC they sustain more hull than rigging hits.

Thanks Mike.
Is there a reason for this to impart more hull hits?
Any facts to provide?
Only thing I can think of is a smaller target size ????

Steve,

You made me go back and reexamine the charts (it's been a lot of years since we started using them). The rigging hits are accelerated on the smaller ship chart to match more closely the limited amount of hull hits the smaller ships can take.
