Table of Contents
GURPS Traveller: Modular Cutter is a GURPS Traveller supplement.
  • Often dubbed "the workhorse of the Imperium," the modular cutter is the primary ship design for intrasystem transport. Its flexibility made it popular; its durability made it essential.
  • In Modular Cutter, you'll find designs for vessels ranging from 40 to 800 tons, as well as dozens of designs for ship modules that can be swapped out at a moment's notice. You'll also find new ideas for using the modules, from space stations to interstellar cargo ships. Traveller fans have been asking for this book for years!

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The ship of a thousand uses. With its legendary utility and flexibility, the 50-ton modular cutter has spread across the Imperium. Its interchangeable payloads can turn cargo hauler into battle craft or research vessel in the time it takes to unlock one module and load the next.

For the first time ever, GURPS Traveller Modular Cutter details the options for this ubiquitous vessel. Discover:

  • The inner workings of modular shipping ... including the unpleasant consequences of haphazard module-handling.
  • A wide variety or alternate module-carrying ships, from the small Hiver version of the cutter to huge container starships.
  • Scores of alternate modules to make the modular cutter fit any mission profile.
  • Information on designing custom modular vessels using the starship-construction rules in GURPS Traveller
