Tactical Space Support

Watermarked PDF

Captain Lothair Aleron pushed against the bridge airlock, the reaction sending him toward his duty station. A practiced flip landed him in the seat where he immediatly secured his flight harness. "What have we got, mister Aubert?"

"Not sure yet, captain. I've got a contact ten-thousand klicks off the starboard bow, ten degrees down. No positive ID yet - it's running fairly clean in the IR and radio bands."

The sensor operator kept his eyes fixed on the holographic sphere suspended just above his duty station. The volume within represented the space around the ship, which occupied the exact center. A small yellow dot tipped a thin neon line at the outer edge, representing the bogie and its presumed current vector.

The captain frowned. No friendly ship was supposed to be in this region, nor were any registered celestial objects... "All hands, go to Condition Yellow."

"Captain! I've got a radar/ladar sweep from the bogey, straigth at us!"

"Launch flash, launch flash! Captain, we've got incoming!"

"Condition Red! All hands, secure for emergency burn!"

Space is the final frontier, the river of night that separates the tiny islands of rock and oxygen inhabited by Mankind. Like their ancestors before them, the people of Terra Nova ply the space lanes around their planet. The Tactical Space Support contains additional rules, equipment and background material for Dream Pod 9's exciting Heavy Gear mechanized science fiction game.

This sourcebook includes:

  • A brief history of Terranovan space flight;
  • Information on the Helios system;
  • Details on the Tannhauser Gates;
  • Full tactical space-to-space and space-to-ground rules;
  • Sample campaign set-ups;
  • New equipment.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
