The ablative particle caster should not significantly affect railgun
projectiles or missiles unless the cloud it produces is incredibly thick
(not unlike my skull).	

This is from my home page.  I was thinking of creating different sizes
this defensive system but haven't put "pencil to paper" yet.  One
chaff pack would not effectively protect a capital class ship.	  

Chaff Pack  ("New Weapon"): 
Mass: 1 
Cost: 1 

The Chaff Pack is a one shot defensive weapon that does NO damage to
potential targets. Instead it confuses the guidance systems of incoming
missiles. A ship fires a Chaff Pack in the turn it is being attacked by
missiles and on a roll of 5 the missile
heads for the chaff instead of the ship. The missile should be moved
6" forward to simulate it passing by the target ship.  If the missile
not run out of fuel it can aquire another target and if possible attack
the next turn. On a roll of 6 the missile heads for the chaff and
doing no damage to the target ship. Only one Chaff Pack can be fired per
turn, i.e. firing two chaff packs will not significantly increase the
of chaff. The chaff fired affects all missles attacking the target ship
turn.  However, a defensive die roll must be made for each incoming

I hate missiles almost as much as Mark hates Kra'Vak Railguns ;)
