That's a toughie.
It works very well when combat is abstracted, but becomes more difficult
when translating into tactical terms. The very simplicity of FT makes it
granular. In other words, it's hard to make a small change. You could
generalise the effects as a -1 on any "to hit" roll, allowing that it's
sum of a great number of other factors, from crew fatigue to reduced
The problem is: that's a big penalty. Though I'm of the opinion that
not unwarranted, I'm sure that there are those who'd disagree.
