We use these in our group. call 'em launch/drop tubes. 2 mass 8
points per hangar on the ship.
We allow players who want to pay the extra to fix a direction (P,S or
R) and launch them 6" in that arc at the midpoint or end of a ship's
Tubes are an either or option all bays are fitted or none. Tubes are
tied to a particular hangar. Recovery is per the normal rules and the
tubes are threshold checked like normal. Once destroyed launching is
treated as for non carriers.
