I always thought of MT missiles as a large nuke (50 to 100 MT range,
all the ruskies did detonate a 50 mt bomb once and using the layered
there is no limit on the size possible). The dammage was due to the
of the explosion itself (did post a liink once to the effect of a
detonation in space).

Of course, this raises the effect of a MT missile being able to effect
than  one target at once, ut it also allows a bomb pumped x-ray laser 
missilewarhead varient for the MT missile. I would propose some vareint
the MKP packs as used by the KV to represent the armour piercing effect
the lasers (after all, a x-ray laser with the energy of a nuke behind it

would definately be counted as having enough energy to go through any
you care to place).

How about this.
MT missile laser warhead.

When gets within 6MU of target, detonates firing a hegehog pattern of
lasers in the front arc.

Targeted ship rolls a D6. On a 1, the lasers miss. On 2-5, take a K4 hit

(including reroll). On a 6, take 2x K4 hits (including rerolls).

Cost=? (no idea).

Somebody care to run average dammage Vs standard MT missiles? I think
would be more powerfull than a normal warhead, but how much would
the tweeking required. Or we could keep it this powerful, after all,
the old ship design rules, the MT missiles were a lot more deadly than
present (the hull DP`s have increased but the dammage of the MT missile 
warhead has not increased).

This has raised another idea for the MT missiles. With the nuke warhead,
about allowing dammage to increase the closer to the target the missile
Say at 4MU, 1D6, and going up by 1D6 per MU closer it is?
