Intent: In keeping with various Mandos' plans to start up a podracing circuit, I am building a podracer.
Development Thread:
http://starwarsrp.net/topic/3056-now-this-is-podracing/ - Jorus begins R&D concept work on a pod made from Inimica gunship engines.
http://starwarsrp.net/topic/14105-a-well-deserved-vacation-fringe-dominion-of-phu/ - Jorus field-tests a prototype pod in a professional race. It does not go well.
Manufacturer: Silk Holdings
Model: Silk-class Podracer
Affiliation: Personal
Modularity: Modular attachment point on the underside of the command car, for a tow cable or a small fixed dual blaster cannon turret.
Production: Unique
Material: Duraplast, transparisteel
Description: As pods go, The Silk is less maneuverable than some but faster and more durable than most. Built to professional standards by experienced makers of small luxury craft, it is essentially a rich boy's plaything. A few expensive tweaks and miniaturized gadgets maximize survivability, and with the right modules installed it can be a half-decent long-range personal transport. Overall, though, it is mostly an unexceptional race pod, track legal on Malastare, Nar Shaddaa, and other major race worlds.
Role: Sporting vehicle, fast transport
Height: ~3m
Length: 12m
Width: 8m
Weight: 1200kg
Minimum Crew: 1
Optimal Crew: 1
Propulsion: Repulsorlift, jet
Top Speed: 1050kph
Armaments: None by default (see Modularity)
Passenger Capacity: One pit droid, in compacted form only.
Cargo Capacity: 50kg cargo compartment, 2000kg towing capacity if tow cable installed.
Misc. Equipment: Locator beacon (default set to 'off'), omnidirectional holocams linked to a black box, terrain sensors, map system, retrothruster/air brake assembly, power coupling, shock couch with a miniature emergency ray/particle shield generator.
