Deck Plan 6: Dragon is a set of deck plans for the 400 ton Dragon class System Defense Boat and a suitable Jump Shuttle (Volare class).

  • It appears in two different grid layouts; 1 hex (1") = 1 yard and 1 square (1.5") = 1.5 meters.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Dragon-class 400-ton system defense boat is the most commonly encountered SDB in the Imperium. Dragons are used for customs patrol, piracy suppression, search and rescue operations, and many other missions. This set also includes deck plans for the 200-ton clamp-on jump shuttle, used to transfer SDBs from system to system (and a starship in its own right).

Because the SDB is so often encountered on non-military missions, this deck plan will be of interest even to GMs who are not running military-oriented campaigns. It includes nine double-sided sheets (hexes on one side, squares on the other), and a set of Cardboard Heroes miniatures.
