CMS Pelican (Scout Tender and Troop Transport)

Postby jedion357 » Thu Sep 03, 2009 2:06 pm

CMS Pelican, armed freighter- because of the expense of replacing three assault scouts the RM took into service a freighter confiscated from smugglers to serve as a courier, scout tender, and troop transport. After a few modifications, the Pelican has become a workhorse re-supplying assault scouts to extend their patrol patterns, inspecting freighters, and performing the occasional courier run to Clarion’s half dozen embassies in other systems.

The Pelican's freighter design is typical of most commercial vessels with a long boom between the engine room and the rest of the ship that facilitates connecting of cargo modules.

Excellent deck plans.

Do you have a side-cut view?
(Or silhouette)

I could work on that but no- no side view or silhouette but a silhouette might be easiest to work up.


Your question makes me think that next time I should try to find an interesting miniature and just work backwards from the miniature to do up deck plans.

Her stats say one LB, but the plans show two.

Which is right?

I see three. :?

In my opinion, LB in Knight Hawks can be a single gun or a battery of guns.
I get this imagery from some of the images throughout the KH books.

Battery = multiple guns.
