Weapons: Mk-7 Mine

            The Mk-7 Anti-track mine resembles a square plastic carrying case or flattened jerry can, 4 inches deep and 10 inches to a side. It has a moulded carrying handle and weighs around 11 pounds. The basic mine contains virtually no detectable metal although optional fusing systems may change this. The design has been widely copied. Outer […]

Useful Conversion Formulae

GURPS source material generally uses the US version of the Imperial system. If you are more comfortable with metric measurements, this is generally not a problem. 4e mainly uses just yards and pounds, or units derived from these, so the only conversion numbers you need to remember are 0.914 and 2.2. One hex can be […]

LLW: Water Cannon and Brine Throwers.

            The only GURPS stats for a water cannon that I can find are in GURPS Vehicles 3e  (p.118) and these omit certain criteria that one might wish to know. The table below attempts to adapt those rules to TS 4e. It is assumed that the water cannon is mounted on a suitable vehicle. Being […]

Weapons: TS Derringers.

Version 2             Originally derringers were designed to use a large-calibre bullet in a small weapon. During the twentieth century derringers were manufactured in a wider variety of calibres. In 2100 the most common models of derringer fire standard 10mm and 4mm caseless pistol rounds. The short barrels of these weapons reduce the effectiveness of […]

Weapons: TS Dart Guns.

            Animal control officers, forest rangers, veterinarians, farmers, police, medical orderlies, spies, biologists and many other professions may find use for a dart gun. The dart guns available in TS have some differences to earlier models. Rather than compressed gas they are coilguns. An advantage of this is that projectile velocity can be varied so […]

Grenade Mesh

           Grenade mesh has been a common feature of defensive military positions for several decades. It resembles mosquito net but is made of high-tech composites so is considerably more resistant to cutting. The mesh is in fact two layers bonded together. The outer-facing layer is printed in an appropriate camouflage colour or pattern. The inner […]

Tinkerbells

           His suspicion grew. None of the ground sensors had been tripped but something was out there in the long savannah grass. As  casually as he could he stood up, stretched and moved into the guard hut. As soon as he was out of sight he pressed the button and dropped down low. A cloud […]

Vehicles: Wolfhound AFV

             Invariably large tracked cybershells get referred to as “cybertanks” irrespective of their actual battlefield role. The modular nature of some designs means that distinguishing between a true tank, a personnel carrier or some other variant can be problematic. A good example of this is the Vickers-Sackett Wolfhound.              The Wolfhound appears somewhat smaller than […]

Vehicles: Bruja mobile gun

              The 21st century witnessed a number of small scale but bloody conflicts. Expensive modern military hardware was in short supply. As a consequence many of the combatants utilized trucks and SUVs for transportation. These conflicts were to see the resurrection of an older idea. The Russian 76.2mm ZIS-3 light gun was continuing to provide […]

Part of the programming of Taleons is based on the British regimental system. Taleons are very loyal to their comrades and regiment. Canada, Britain and Australia were enthusiastic early customers […]
