Ares Dragon class Mercenary Cruiser

I previously purchased the venture class cruiser which, while I found some small issues with that plan, it was extremely well done.
This ship plan is better than most out there, but not as clean as the last offering. The details are outstanding, however I find a discrepancy between the # of beds on board. It says 12 staterooms and 32 beds in the barracks. The staterooms are issued to the ships general crew and CO's, but the barracks are supposed to house 4 squads of 8 marines, with each squad having an additional squad leader and that adds up to 36 marines. The plan layout shows 5 bunk areas per barracks with 4 standard areas that assume double occupancy and 1 of the 5 has a private fresher, this 1 being for the squad leader. Not a big deal, just a point, and I assume I'll just take another 6T (or should it be 9 or 16T)away from cargo or something to make up for it. Also in their previous work they listed the fuel amount in the standard fashion, ie. 1xJump2 and 4wks operations, but this design just lists the overall fuel capacity. It's not a huge issue. I can do the math, but when I pay $10 for a ship design I don't think I should have to. Overall this design is still quite good compared to most, but the devil is in the details and this needs a little more polishing.

A very beautiful design. Well thought out and excellant detail. However this product came out before the newest version of High Guard and has an error that clashes with those rules. The listed armor rating for the chip is 16 points of crystaliron armor. According to the new High Guard rules crystaliron armor has a max rating of 13, and then only if manufactured in a TL 13 facility. Otherwise it has a max rating based on the TL it is manufactured at.

And those issues have been rectified. I lowered the armor and replaced that tonnage with structural reinforcement. You will also note that the COBRA Combat lander now has high guard small craft stats. I also added a small bit of content.

A very nice versatile ship, I especially like the excellent deck plans, the new vehicles and the detailed description of the mercenary unit.
