# Question: Launching Small Craft

## Recommended Posts

is there a rule for how many small craft a starship can launch in a turn?

there are rules for how many missiles can be launched, but I cant seem to find anything about small craft

Well, a mathematical way to guesstimate a launch rate:

(N x 2L)/v = Launch Time

N = number of craft that will fit through a hangar door simultaneously

L = Length of said craft (allow another craft length for a safety buffer)

v = the departure speed of the craft.

So if you are using meters for craft length and m/s for a departure speed, this will tell you the number of seconds between launches.

I was thinking of using the same rules used for Missile launches, 1 per turn, that you can double for 5 pts

doubling would involve gravitic or electromagnetic catapults like in Battlestar Galactica, the Star Fury bays from B5 appear to be ready racks that just drop all at once

Do you have the Ultimate Vehicle? I thought there were some options in there. If you need I can look it up when I get home tonight.
