Surface Life on A Skimmer - The People

  It is important to note that this section provides several player useable boats and ships, though is largely designed for platforms which might be used by a military character as a launching platform, or for support.  If a character were to create a character who was a Naval Officer, and serve aboard a surface ship, then several rule changes may be needed for large ship-to-ship conflict.

  For ease of playability, several ships may be slightly changed from reality.  It is also worth noting that the game world will determine the Naval capability of each country.  The DD-21 may be more suited for DC world, where some money still exists.  In Twilight, for example, many of these ships will either be sunk, or alongside with no money to sail them.

Patrol Craft (PP)

  The basic craft on any nation, the Patrol Craft is often a high speed and highly maneuverable boat used for river and coastal patrol.  These craft are often useful for mercs and soldiers, as they can be easily transported and crewed.

Corvettes (FS)

  A step between the Patrol Craft and the Frigate, the Corvette is an inexpensive way to own a combat capable ship, without a large or well-trained Navy.  Small and agile, several of these craft are able to traverse most rivers, making them effective fire suppression boats.

Frigates (FF)

  With limping economies, many nations have opted for the Frigate, a smaller version of the Destroyer.  Cheaper and easier to build (and lose), these craft are used primarily for such roles as ASW and escort.  Most are capable of carrying at least one helicopter.  Most Coast Guard Vessels fall into this category due to either size or weaponry.

Destroyers (DD)

  With their role as ASW platforms established in WWII, the Destroyer was the mainstay of most navies until the 80's.  It was then that the global economy started to show that the bulky and overstressed Destroyers were not as efficient to maintain as a Frigate.  Larger than the Frigate, Destroyers pack more firepower, and are normally given multi-tasks from Command and Control, AAW and ASW.

Aircraft Carriers (CV)

  A key role to warfare is the 'postage stamp' in the middle of the ocean, known as the Aircraft Carrier.  In Twilight, many of these platforms are either sunk, damaged, or too expensive to run; which is a constant threat in Merc and DC.  The Aircraft Carrier is used here as a platform for naval aviator characters to launch from, and for the purpose of the adventure.
