I saw the gunboat demolition derby scenario in the rulebook, and since then I've been hopping in anticipation of getting a number of friends/family trained (as well as learning missiles myself) to do a specific variation of the derby that seems appealing. Unfortuneately, that hasn't happened yet.

But here's the idea: LP-13's, each one loaded out with 4 nuclear tipped missiles. In light of the LP's weak ZD, the missiles can probably be fairly light on decoys, and heavy on speed, or nukes, or both.

How does B-4[NK1]x3[DCY]x2 sound? Or B-5[NK1]x2[DCY]x1, or
B4[NK1]x5?

Thoughts?

Putting a nuke into an LP 13. Giggle...

Sounds delicious.

I mean really? won't the nuke cost more than the gunboat? giggle.

(I know, not really) but I can't express "OVERKILL" in any better terms than Nuking an LP 13.

Funny stuff.

Cl: The loadouts sound good, but a more "realistic" scenario is "Doomsday at XC's Rabbithole": Just pit the four LP-13s and their tender against one Di Gleria and its two GB escorts.

The one problem with those missile is the high burn duration - the Demolition Derby map is pretty small. I'd go to B-1 or B-2 missile and load on more nukes. :)
