Ryan is correct.

You are limited to a number of weapons equal to the vehicle size (not
counting the free APSW).

In DS2, Wheeled, Grav, Tread etc. have different movement rates and
terrain
limitations. This is abstracted out in SG2. A direct conversion would
have
vehicles zipping across the SG board at 60, 100, 120 or even 150" a turn
(not counting VTOL or aerospace).

DS2 also makes some adjustment in the type of powerplant required for
certain movement types and weapons (as Ryan indicated). And points try
to
provide some balance as well (but the system needs adjusting).

Hi all.
Need some help here.  Dunno if I'm doin' it right, but I'm designing a
vehicle,
and want to put some stats to it.  This is before I finish designing the
model,
so I know what to put on it, and what not to.  Here goes:
Class 2
10 Cap
Ar Val=2
GAC/2 turreted=6
HEL/1=2
GMS/L=2
10 Cap used.
The rule book doesn't state anything about point capacities for wheeled,
tracked
feathered, so how does one justify designing a vehicle that is wheeled,
verses
one
that is Grav?
Does it just happen?   I know all vehicles have a basic move of 12" but
how
does, or would, or should one pay for a Grav type vehicle verses a
wheeled
type
vehicle, in the designing stage?
Tanks.... for the help! ;-)
