I like the Sleuth; it's a good looking ship. Unfortunately, WEG kind of shafted it by giving it the exact same sensors as a standard Y-Wing, a craft noted for its underpowered sensors. Considering a scout ship depends on its sensors, I thought I'd give the Sleuth the CRMcNeill treatment.


Incom A-24 Sleuth

The A-24 was designed and released during the heyday of INCOM. The A-24 is a scout ship, capable of carrying only two persons: a single pilot and passenger; an astromech droid may serve as co-pilot. While older than more popular scout ships, the A-24 has excellent maneuverability and sublight speed for a vehicle of this class. (Text copied from Wanted by Cracken, pg. 81).

    ALLIANCE ARMED SCOUT
    Description: The Alliance has modified Sleuths to serve as long range multi-role scouts.

    -Tight-Beam Transmission: Requires a Very Difficult Communications skill roll to intercept comm signals, and then only if the characters are in the same fire arc as the transmission (-5 if they know the specific vector, -5 if they know the specific frequency). Additional rolls may be required to decode the transmission if it is scrambled.

I like it. My only gripe is that the search range needs to be a little longer, not just 10 more SU than the scan..

The Sleuth isn't that much bigger than the Y-Wing, so I just gave it the same sensor package they put on the Longprobe, and all they did for it was double the ranges for the Y-Wing's stock package. I'd be more inclined to roll the Scan range back to 60, which would still give the Search mode a good range advantage, and gives the Sleuth one of the best sensor packages of any scout ship.

That could work. Perhaps you could also make a slightly longer (say 2meter) version, which has a little comfort for the 2 crew (or even knock the crew down to 1, so he has a bit more comfort) for those long flights..

The SWDA design has enough room to fit in a crew rest bunk, along with a galley and a fresher stall. If the crew goes on 12 on / 12 off (which is how I drove my first year on the road), with one flying while the other sleeps, they can hot bunk just fine in the available space. I figure whatever cargo space was left from stock was taken up by the added equipment.

The civilian version would have more room for some creature comforts, if the owner was willing to sacrifice cargo space. But IMO, the military version would be more concerned with mission requirements than creature comforts for the crew. And from what I hear, a bunk to sleep in, a galley to prep food and a toilet to do your business on count as luxuries in military service...
