Back in the heady days of my first Traveller campaign (i.e. the infamous Ursula T20 IRC campaign) our party obtained possession of an advanced, sleek, and deadly 200 dTon system defense boat, or "pocket battlerider" since it was designed to be dropped off in-system via a jump-capable tender. This little ship has gotten us through one or two firefights, and now that Mongoose Traveller is being released, I'd like to pay homage to that campaign with my own version of this feisty little boat.

Using Liam Devlin's original design, I tried to match it to Mongoose Traveller as closely as I could. I'm waiting for their new High Guard supplement so I can modify it further (I have to use up some of that cargo space!) but this should do for now.

This is my first foray in creating ships in Mongoose Traveller, but feel free to double check and critique my design.
