FPilot Posted August 2, 2004 Share Posted August 2, 2004 The Fluff: Napier-Chilton started as a frontier (home planet: Rubiconis) subsidiary of SyRam, often building SyRam designs or fabricating subassemblies for SyRam's own factories. Recently they began to create their own designs, due to (as said in company press) customer needs specific to the colonial militaries. So far, N-C hasn't sold any of their in-house design equipment to the main UFF, but main business has come from units of the Colonial UFF and planetary militias. N-C often builds its CAVs without armaments, so the customer units can fit their own weaponry and support hardware as needed. In what the company itself calls "a disturbing trend", N-C CAVs and vehicles have been commonly seen in the employ of anti-UFF Terran insurgent forces, such as the Interlopers, the Regulators, the Metal Victory Army and so on. Security at N-C plants is always tight and detectives for N-C have been known to assist governments in search of the terror armies, but tracing the leaks to the source continues to be a problem. CAVs: The MAR 18-Z2 This is the standard Main Battle CAV in Napier-Chilton's current product line. It is presented here without weapons or add-on equipment. 4 DAMAGE TRACKS MM: 18. POWER: 4. COST: 37 ACA: +2. COST: 1 DCA: +4. COST: 3 ARM: +2. COST: 14 PW: 17. COST: 32 TL: +4. COST: 21 ECM: +2. COST: 8 WEAPONRY: (ADDED BY USER) BREEDER: N-C 270 TARGET: CT-Z2 ECM: SWORD 18 TARGET TYPE: HARD MOVE TYPE: CAV ROLE: GENERAL PURPOSE/SUPERIORITY COST: 116 POINTS (BEFORE WEAPONS) The FAM 50-M3 This Small-Chassis CAV type is popular with planetary militias and Colonial UFF scout squadrons. It comes in two main variants: the Dash 5 shown below and the Dash 6, which upgrades the Breeder from the SyRam Sun Corona T-55 to the T-60 of the same manufacturer. (This adds 12 more Cost Points.) Often this is required because of a need to provide more power for energy weaponry. The FAM is a speedster, better used as a scoot-and-snipe machine rather than a close-and-hose superiority type. 3 DAMAGE TRACKS MM: 32. POWER: 4. COST: 55 ACA: +3. COST: 1 DCA: +7. COST: 4 ARM: +2.
