EBT Heavy Weapons

Page history last edited by Michael 2 years, 8 months ago

back to the Index or to the East Broad Top price lists

 


     These are of course very general costs; transportation expenses, seasonal variations, supply and demand will all affect these. Also, almost no store will carry even a fraction of this list.

     Production per month in 2140 is at most five 82mm or 92mm guns, and one 150mm mortar.

 

     Availability:  for an ordinary walk-in customer, not known to the seller nor part of their organization, this is the chance as a POWxN%, of at least one item being available. Of course, some locations will have better availability, and having good contacts will also help.

82mm field gun

 

     A black powder rifled breech-loader, fires fixed cartridge rounds -- shot (solid), explosive shell or canister. The range is 4500 meters at 10 degrees elevation, 6600 meters at 20 degrees elevation. In use, ranges from 800 to 2000 meters are typical. A spring-based (non-hydraulic) recoil system is fitted, allowing better rates of fire than for a simple fixed gun.

 

     The gun is on two iron wheels (rubber-tired wheels can be substituted for $500 extra). It includes seats for 2 gunners.

 

     The crew consists of 9 men; 2 ride on the gun, 4 on the limber, 2 on the pulling horses, and the gun captain on a regular saddled horse.

     The gun barrel and breech weigh 365 kg, and are 2.3 meters long. The carriage weighs 590 kg.

     A 6-power binocular and a compass are not included in the price, but would be useful.

     Malfunction number 95; the most common malfunction is a misfire -- the gunner should recock the gun without opening the breech, and attempt again to fire the round.

82mm explosive shell

     This is fixed ammunition (projectile attached to a brass case containing propellant) with a fuzed explosive shell. The projectile  weighs 6.2 kg, complete with 0.2 kg of black powder and a safety fuze. The propellant is 1.6 kg of black powder, fired by a percussion fuze in the base of the 1 kg case. Muzzle velocity is 513 meters per second; it will penetrate 96 mm of mild steel (armor value 37) at point-blank range -- about half that (armor value 25) at 800 meters range.

     The cost of the shell includes a $4 deposit on the brass case.

     Blast does 5d6 out to 2 meters, 4d6 out to 4 meters, 3d6 out to 6 meters, and 1d6 out to 8 meters.

     Solid shot has the same penetrating power, but only costs $6, and of course has no explosive effect.

92mm field mortar

     A black powder breech-loading rifled "bag cartridge" mortar, firing explosive shells. The range is about 3200 meters; the usual minimum range is 300 meters.

     The mortar barrel and breech weigh 110 kg, and are 0.63 meters long. The carriage weighs 590 kg, without wheels, trail poles and other transport items. The weight listed included wheels, poles, horse harness, etc.

     A 6-power binocular and a compass are not included in the price, but would be useful. There is a crude sight on the mortar barrel itself; normally a gunner's quadrant (included) is used in aiming the mortar.

     Malfunction number 91; the most common malfunction is a misfire -- the gunner should reprime and recock the mortar without opening the breech, and attempt again to fire the round.
