So, next up is the Repulsor Sled. Once again, WEG touched on some useful items, but then neglected to include them in the stats...
Quote:
Other features include a clamping hook launcher, a front-mounted blaster cannon, and the newest scanning and communications jamming equipment. A modular design allows engineers to refit a repulsor sled according to a mission or particular situation.
My first thought is turning the Drop Net listed in the stats into something horizontally fired, like a Conner Net. The clamping hook launcher will be included, as well as sensors and jamming capability.

I'd like to solicit opinions as to what could be included with the modular design. I know we discussed modular weapons for the speeder bikes earlier. Is this something similar? Maybe a repulsor sled that can be outfitted as a hit-and-run anti-armor platform, or with anti-personnel weaponry, and not just as an anti-swoop pursuit platform. Thoughts?

EDIT: I'm also considering a two-seater sled used as a command or heavy weapons vehicle for Imperial Scout units (a two-seater vehicle is mentioned in the ImpSB, but never statted).

Okay, here's the Floating Fortress. I know there have been some discussion in the past about the Fortress having such a limited altitude, but after putting some thought into it, I didn't feel the need to change it. The Floating Fortress is, in essence, a massive, heavily armored landspeeder that can just as easily ram straight through a house or other building as it can drive around it.

Length: 17.4 meters
Skill: Landspeeder Operation: Floating Fortress

Well, due to lack of response on the Repulsorlift Sled, I decided to just make two versions; the Pursuit model from the ImpSB, and the up-armored Scout model that is hinted at in the Sector Group Organization chapter.

Repulsorlift Sled

Craft: Aratech's 64-Y Swift 3
Type: Repulsorlift Sled
Scale: Swoop (+2D)
Length: 4.1 meters
Skill: Swoop Operation: 64-Y Swift 3
Crew: 1
Crew Skill:
Sensors 4D
Vehicle Blasters 4D+1
Swoop Operation 4D+2
Passengers: None
Cargo Capacity: 4 kilograms
Cover: 1/4
Cost: Not Available For Sale
Maneuverability: 1D+2
Move: 280; 800kph
Altitude Range: Ground - 35 meters
Body: 1D+2
Sensors:
Passive 1km / 1D
Scan 2km / 2D
Search 3km / 3D
Focus 300m / 4D
Weapons:
Medium Repeating Blaster
Fire Arc: Front
Crew: 1
Skill: Vehicle Blasters
Fire Control: 2D
Range: 3m-50m/150m/400m
Rate of Fire: 2D Auto-Fire
Damage: 4D
Grappling Line Launcher
Fire Arc: Front
Crew: 1
Skill: Vehicle Blasters
Fire Control: 2D
Range: 3m-15m/50m/100m
Damage: 4D (as Tractor Beam), plus 6D ionization per round.
Note: The Grappling Line can be retracted and reused multiple times, but can not be used on more than one target at a time.
Conner Net Launcher
Fire Arc: Front
Crew: 1
Skill: Vehicle Blasters
Fire Control: 1D
Range: 0-10m/20m/30m
Damage: 6D Ionization & Stun per round
Ammo: 6

SCOUT VARIANT
The two-seat combat variant used in Imperial Army Scout Lances puts the same engine on a stretched chassis with a more combat-oriented weapons system. Use the above stats, except as noted:
    Length: 5.1 meters
    Skill: Swoop Operation: 64-Y Swift 3
    Crew: 2 (1 @ +5)
    Move: 175; 500kph
    Altitude Range: Ground - 25 meters
    Body: 3D
    Weapons:
    Medium Repeating Blaster
    Fire Arc: Front
    Crew: 1
    Skill: Vehicle Blasters
    Fire Control: 2D
    Range: 3m-50m/150m/400m
    Rate of Fire: 2D Auto-Fire
    Damage: 4D
    Light Laser Cannon
    Fire Arc: Front
    Crew: 1
    Skill: Vehicle Blasters
    Fire Control: 2D
    Range: 100m-300m/1km/2km
    Damage: 7D
    Capsule: This variant of the Repulsorlift Sled is slower and more heavily armed and armored than the Pursuit variant. It fills a requirement for a two-seat scout/combat platform in the Imperial Army's Scout Lances, serving as either a command vehicle or as a heavier combatant to add a stronger punch to the light weaponry on Scout Speeder Bikes. Generally, the back seat crewman handles the CommScan system while the front-seater drives and fights.

Since I was on the subject of Swoop-Scale vehicles with the Repulsorlift Sled, I went back and added stats for the Rebel Speeder Bike to the Speeder Bike / Swoop post.

No problem! This project has been on the back burner for so long that I'm looking forward to wrapping it up.

Have you thought of working with someone to compile all of these into a nice PDF??

It’s on my radar, but I’ve got a few things to wrap up before I reach that point. The big ones are to update the stats for the WEG starships (basically doing to them what I’m doing here), updating my home brew starships (particularly the ones based on mentions in WEG material) and updates for applicable house rules, like the ones that allow characters to Command starships.

IMO, the pieces are all there; they just need to be updated and/or polished up.

CRMcNeill, can you stat the WW-676 repulsorlift sled with MobileMortar-3? I remembered this when you asked about the scout variant of the Repulsorlift Sled.

The weapon is an MM-s3 grenade launcher. Another variant mounts an E-Web heavy repeating blaster.

My focus here is updating existing WEG stats. That vehicle has no WEG stats to update, as it is an original creation from the Essential Guide series. And frankly, I've always thought that thing looked silly, with the pilot sticking way up in the air like that.

Dear friggin' dancing Ewoks missing their loincloths, yes. Not only does it look silly, it looks dangerous. Yeah, I know that the Empire doesn't give a crap about the safety of its own soldiers (because the Empire friggin' embodies No OSHA Compliance among other things), but holy crap, sitting in that high seat with no restraints on what is essentially a silly looking swoop with a grenade launcher on one end is just begging for trouble. Any sort of high-speed maneuvers and that second man goes flying. And that guy is the driver? Where are the controls?

EDIT: I don't remember ever seeing this vehicle before, probably because it comes from the Essential Guide to Vehicles (I think such a book exists, right?). But even so, upon my first glance at this, yeah, totally not impressed. It looks silly, impractical and dangerous to the occupants. This is not the sort of war machine that would strike fear into the hearts of its opponents. Rolling Eyes

EDIT2: Ok, I see now the indicator for the control stick (sorry, this is a small picture), but even so, it looks like the pilot has to use one hand to grab the seat hang on for dear life while he pilots with the other hand. Yeah, totally still not impressed.

Sorry, my mistake.

Thank you for your updating of the WEG stats. They look great.

Per Wookieepedia, it's actually from the Essential Guide to Weapons & Technology.

IMO, it wouldn't be so bad if the pilot and gunner were in side-by-side seating on the level where the gunner is. Warhammer 40K 1st. Gen. Landspeeder did something similar.

If that were the case, I'd just use the same stats as the Scout variant of the WEG repulsor sled, with the weapons replaced by whatever was appropriate; grenade launcher, E-Web, light laser cannon, etc.
