Designer's Notes

 

First a big thanks to Jon Tuffley of Ground Zero Games for creating Full Thrust and all the wonderful miniatures that go with it.  Also thanks to the members of the FT Playtest mailing list for their work in designing and reviewing most of these ships.

 

These pages and the resulting designs are the work of many people, most of which are identified below, any omissions and errors are unintentional.

 

GZGverse Background:

The time period covered by most of these designs for Human ships is the Xeno War.  Aliens have invaded Human space and battles between the Human factions have diminished as they focus on this outside threat.  There is a new wave of ships being designed and built using the lessons of the past plus some changes in doctrine so they can better battle the Kra'Vak, the main invaders of Human space.

 

To counter the Kra'Vak's greater maneuverability, many Human ships have higher thrust and weapons with wider arcs than in the past.  Because the Kra'Vak weapons ignore screens and make armour less effective, new Human ships use fewer screens and less armour.

 

Ship designs are most often improved versions from what was seen in the Fleet Books.  Each fleet should have a very similar feel to the Fleet Book version, but with some updates.  These designs are not optimized and they still have some flaws because everyone using cheesed out perfect ships would be no fun.
