G'day Bif,

Oerjan is probably enjoying a well earned summer holiday so I'll TRY and

help out Bif.....

Recently Oerjan worked out this table comparing the average damages of
SMs
and standard MTMs against upto 6 PDS (where we're looking at total PDS
involved, not PDS per MTM or SM). As Oerjan eloquently explained when we

were discussing the topic, you must consider the case where theres more
than one PDS/MTM to get a true feel for their potential power (through
the
stauration of PDS). <I hope I'm doing justice to your explanation
Oerjan.>

#PDS: 1 SM    3 MTM    2 MTM	1 MTM
0	   12.25     21.00     14.00	   7.00
1	    9.75      17.50	10.50	    3.50
2	    7.62      14.00	 7.00	     1.75
3	    5.85      10.50	 5.25	     0.88
4	    4.39      8.75	 3.50	      0.44
5	    3.24      7.00	 2.63	      0.22
6	    2.36      5.25	 1.75	      0.11

Now for the MTM-K3 version you propose this table would transform into
(assuming I didn't stuff this up!)....

#PDS: 1 SM    3 MTM    2 MTM	1 MTM
0	   12.25     15.75     10.50	   5.25
1	    9.75      13.13	7.88	    2.63
2	    7.62      10.50	5.25	    1.31
3	    5.85      7.88	 3.94	     0.66
4	    4.39      6.56	 2.63	      0.33
5	    3.24      5.25	 1.97	      0.17
6	    2.36      3.94	 1.31	      0.08

And for the MTM-K2 version (hopefully).....

#PDS: 1 SM    3 MTM    2 MTM	1 MTM
0	   12.25     14.00     9.33	  4.67
1	    9.75      11.67	7.00	   2.33
2	    7.62      9.33	 4.67	    1.17
3	    5.85      7.00	 3.50	     0.58
4	    4.39      5.83	 2.33	     0.29
5	    3.24      4.67	 1.75	     0.15
6	    2.36      3.50	 1.17	     0.07

So compared against an MTM of 2 mass and cost of 3xmass your
with individual strength of MK-3 should be about 0.75 as expensive and
you're MK-2 should be about 0.67 times as expensive. The later is easier
to
do with in the FB design system... so I'd recommend laser warhead
MTM-MK2
should be mass 2 and cost 2xmass (I think).

Now I'll just sit back and wait for someone to correct me ;)

Cheers

Beth
