This is a weekly posting with GURPS vehicles (and the like) to the GURPSnet mailing list. I grant the permission for all non-commercial redistribution of my work, but I would like to know if you put it on a website or the like. With a slight delay, old vehicles appear at http://omeyer.gmxhome.de/GURPSnet_files/summary.html Onno Meyer, 2006-09-11 Artemis-Class 200-ton Safari Ship v1.0 (GT TL12) Copyright 2006 by Onno Meyer The Artemis-class Safari Ship is less luxurious than the more common Animal-class or Leaping Snowcat-class Safari Ships. Instead she mounts more powerful engines, larger tanks and and a docking and maintenance bay for a variety of ground vehicles. The upper deck of the streamlined spaceframe holds the bridge, crew quarters, passenger quarters and the main engine room. The lower deck holds the ground vehicle dock, most of the hydrogen fuel and the jump drives. The bridge and two crew staterooms have a reduced deck height to allow for higher vehicles below. Two empty turrets are mounted on either side of the bridge. The Artemis can be armed when she ventures into insecure frontier areas, but at least one owner has decided to mount a giant, telescoping fishing rod instead. The usual crew are the captain, a navigator, a sensor operator, two engineers, a medic and a steward, with four double staterooms. The listed payload includes 2 stons of weaponry, 10 stons of ground vehicles and 20 stons of general supplies. The complement of vehicles varies with worlds on the flight plan and the hobbies of the owner. A typical loadout would be one Safari ATV, four Safari Buggies and four Safari Monocycles for the hunters and two air/rafts and four grav platforms for the retainers.
