The Reformation Coalition Equipment Guide is a supporting sourcebook intended for use with the Traveller: The New Era game.

  • It is a detailed encyclopedia of the sorts of equipment, vehicles, weapons, and spacecraft that are typically used and encountered in the TNE universe.

Description[edit]

The Star Vikings of the Reformation Coalition Exploratory Service are always on the look-out for useful relic technology from the fallen Imperium. The Reformation Coalition Equipment Guide details some of that relic technology, but it also describes the most important equipment, weapons, and vehicles used by the Coalition. The hallmark of this equipment is the Coalition's attention to flexibility and ruggedness: their designs are intended to make the maximum use of their limited technological and manufacturing resources.

Spacecraft: A wide variety of new and unique spacecraft are detailed in the Reformation Coalition Equipment Guide . Small craft covered include the assault lander, and "Wildcat" fighter, additional details on the 50-ton modular cutter (including a variety of new modules), and detailed examinations of the Aurora and Maggart- class clippers: the backbone and strong right arm of RCES operations. Three Hiver ships are also described, as well as a new type of Scout, and (last, but not least) the Victrix- class multipurpose starships.

Weapons The Wilds are a dangerous place, and weapons are a necessity. the weaponry described in the Reformation Coalition Equipment Guide ranges from the 5mm "pen pistol" covert operations concealed weapon through conventional pistols, SMGs, carbines and rifles, to light and heavy machine-guns. The Coalition 2.5cm grenade launcher, 4cm RAM rifle grenades, and heavier weapons are described in detail. Energy weapons are not neglected, covering everything from laser pistols to plasma bazookas, and the weapons in between.

Heavier weaponry ranges from the tiny Lyrebird support missiles to planetary defense missiles more than 9 meters long. Need a laser-guided tank-buster? Call in a Nail tac missile. Tanks? You can use a light TL-6 Panda recon tank, the TL-8 Prairie Fire tank, or (if you are lucky enough to find one) a TL-15 Intrepid grav tank.

Transportation: getting from place to place on a planetary surface is another problem everyone faces, and the Reformation Coalition Equipment Guide covers this subject as well. Need to get from orbit to dirtied in a hurry? You have a choice of assault lander, drop capsule, or personal re-entry kit. need to get around once you're there? Hop in a Charina wheeled APC, or strap a grav belt to your back and fly there.

Et Cetera: We cannot begin to list everything else that's in here, so flip to the index on page 158 and start reading. The Reformation Coalition Equipment Guide is copiously illustrated, and contains everything you need to use these items in a Traveller: the New Era campaign.
