Subject: FT-HET Lasers

I was thinking about a comment by Oerjan Ohlson about different weapons
being able to be reduced to a few basic concepts (ie-interceptable,
non-intercepterable, ignore sheilds etc), and was thinking about the
about HET Lasers being very simular to P Torps (roll to hit, ignore
sheilds), and came up with this idea.

H.E.T. Laser* (High Energy Throughput Laser)

Mass-Same as beam batterries (including arcs)
Cost-x4 mass
Ramge-8 MU per class
Dammage-Die rolled -3, reroll on a six (ie-1 to 3=miss, 4=1 dp, 5=2 dp,
dp + reroll [use this system to aviod extra die rolls])
PDS Cl.1 L Bats-Same as Cl.1 beam batts, except no penalty for use
hvy fghtrs (? not sure about this, but is a good exchange for limited
Symbol-Same as a Beam batt, except with a L added in the icon.
Notes-Sheilds have no effect due to the beam being non-charged,
not affected by the magnetic sheilding used on human ships. Is affected
Phalon vapor sheilds (diffused by the vapor droplets).

I could see this as a good weapon for use on DD`s, for use against
ships, due to the ability to ignore sheilds.

Any comments/suggestions out there?
