I think I've got a working spreadsheet for vehicles, an early 'sheet, and am now trying do a fuzzi-wuzzi WiGE BA transport for planetary invasions only I have no idea what I'm doing. Rolling Eyes

'Cause WiGEs get a 100% price markup at 25 tons, I'm trying to shrink them as much as possible?

'Cause moving faster then cruise speed causes a control roll, I'm trying to keep the design speed up so you can stay below flank?

'Cause armor weight buys you the turn you slow down to unload with, and the goal was to keep you troops from moving much while exposed, how far do you bump the weight for protection?

'Cause SRM infantry is your lowest common denominator fear, and laser-bearing light aerospace fighters are the second, what armor do you mount? How much do you value a L-AMS, and a turret for it? How about a small x-pulse?

How much armor do you need to see before you dilute it with a turret?

I'm begining to think a 16-tonner, moving only 11, and with just a L-AMS on the bow, is the cheapskate model (~1.15m-cbills, 12-9-6 armor) I'm looking for
