Guncutter of House Cole



The term “Guncutter,” refers to a variety of armed and armoured spacecraft that can be used for in-system space travel, orbit-to-ground transport, hostile landings, or even dogfighting.
This particular guncutter is of an ageing Jovian-pattern, essentially being a refitted version of the Starhawk Bomber and is crewed by one or two pilots, one or two gunners, and an engineer. The craft has several weapon systems, crew quarters for six, and a cargo hold large enough to transport about 30 people or the equivalent in cargo). There are six void-suits on board.

Special Rules
Spacecraft: This vehicle may exit the atmosphere. While in the atmosphere it may operate as a skimmer or flyer at the pilot’s
choice. It gains all benefits and drawbacks of skimmers and flyers. If operating as a flyer, it must be moving at least half its cruising
speed at all times lest it begin a terminal dive to the earth below. In either case, if it becomes completely immobilised due to damage,
count the vehicle as destroyed instead as it crashes to the ground (or begins to fall out of the sky in a terminal dive).
Pilot Operated Linked Weaponry: All weapons classified as “Pilot-operated” may all be fired by the pilot as one shooting
action, at targets no more than one AU apart. Roll for hits and damage separately with each weapon.
Availability: Very Rare
Reinforced Hull: When a vehicle with a Reinforced Hull receives a Critical Hit, halve the result, rounding up. This quality
does not affect rolls on the Critical Hit chart generated by Righteous Fury.
