From publisher blurb:
Gunships & Shuttles is a science-fiction supplement for Cepheus Engine and the HOSTILE setting.
Escape pods, lifeboats, shuttles, gunboats and dropships – vital smallcraft that play an important part in the gritty American Sector setting of HOSTILE. Nearly all of the smallcraft featured in the setting are covered here, with write-ups, external views and comprehensive deckplans. Included also are two pieces of shuttle-related fiction and a bonus: 11 pages scanned in from the ICO’s Flight Handbook published in 2178!
The following shuttles and gunboats are included:
- Neumayer Escape Pod
- Orchid Lifeboat
- Nomad Ship’s Boat
- Sabre Gunboat
- Starlifter Modular Shuttle (and 10 module variations)
- Halo Heavy Shuttle (all three versions)
- Thunderchief Heavy Shuttle
- Mustang Dropship
“The ICO highly recommends that manufacturers include suitable pods or escape vehicles for their starships; crews need the ability to escape from a ship due to threats varying from destabilised mainframe computers, a hostile exomorph infestation, malfunctioning and psychotic androids or unhealthy space-time paradoxes created by an unsynchronised hyperdrive.”
