So, you have your fancy $150,000 Interceptor, loaded with the latest in high tech weaponary and equipment. Exactly how does that vehicle work with Redline? Well, read on and all shall be revealed!
Firstly, build your vehicle as per the normal Dark Future rules, and then use the following tables and notes to convert to Redline.
Jetcopters have a 9x9 danger space for their rotors.
Use the Dark Future top speed and adjust with Table 6.1: Speed Conversions, rounding down.
Multiple the Dark Future armour value by 3. Do this for Carbon Plastic and Carbon Steel separately as this will be important for armour piercing weapons.
Multiple the vehicles maximum damage score by 2.
Divide the vehicles Handling by 2, round down.
Use the Dark Future acceleration, and adjust with Table 6.1: Speed Conversions, rounding down.
A tricky one to call. If the vehicle is fully enclosed (like the Interceptor or Jetcopter), then the score is 19-20. If the vehicle is partially open (like the Renegade), then the score is 17-20. If the vehicle is fully open (like a bike or trike), then the score is 14-20.
Weapons are mounted as per Redline, but unless a turret is mounted, most weapons will be solid mounts.
