* A highly unofficial list of rules for naval vessels in the world of OGRE. I put this together years ago and in a bit of coincidence (or mutual genius), the rules/specs were very similar to the gunboats and frigate in Keith Johnson's 'Invasion of San Fransisco' scenario. I recall emailing him and discussing the size difference between frigates and destroyers which is what the scenario originally listed IIRC.
Ships are large enough to have individual weapon systems and structural
points, in this case 'Hull Units'(I originally used 'SP' but Johnson's
idea is better). Each ship can carry a certain number of weapons, either
main or secondary, that can be varied/customized per ship. Each is
decided and listed at the beginning of the game similar to an OGRE
record sheet. A ship is disabled when all weapons are destroyed and/or
sunk when HU equals zero. A ship with all of its weapons destroyed will
have an attack strength of '1' in the case of overruns only. Speed is
reduced by destroying hull units similar to OGRE treads. Divide the
total number of HU's by speed for each MP reduced.
MWS: Main Weapon System
SWS: Secondary Weapon System
HU: Hull Unit
Corvette: Light coastal vessel
2 SWS 21 HU M3
Frigate: Light combat and escort vessel. Very fast.
1 MWS 1 SWS 40 HU M4
Destroyer: Escort and combat vessel.
1 MWS 2 SWS 60 HU M3 Carries 1 LGEV
Light Cruiser: Combat and escort vessel.
1 MWS 3 SWS 81 HU M3 Carries 1 LGEV
Cruiser: Combat vessel
2 MWS 3 SWS 102 HU M3 Carries 2 LGEV
Heavy Cruiser: Combat vessel
2 MWS* 5 SWS 120 HU M3 Carries 2 LGEV
Battleship: Heavy combat vessel. Very rare.
PanEuropean/Nihon: 8 MWS* 19 SWS
NA Combine: 9 MWS* 17 SWS
201 HU M3
Carries 4 LGEV or 2 GEV
*May be equivalent to Howitzer 6/8 D6
Landing Ship: Coastal assault
4 LSEV* 5 GEV 10 LGEV
can carry 60 pts of armor and 30 strength pts of Inf or equivalent depending on scenario
120 HU M3
*See OGRE book. D2 M6 carries 12 pts of armor and 3 strength points of Inf or equivalent
Main Weapon Systems:
Battery A: 4/3 D4
Battery B: 6/2 D6
Double Missile Rack w/ 10 Missiles: D8
Laser Turret: Same as ground based equivalent
Secondary Weapon Systems:
Battery: 3/2 D3
Missile Rack w/ 5 missiles: D4
Light Missile Rack: 3/4 D2
A disabled vessel (iow no guns) can be boarded and captured. If the
ship is manned, there will be 1 squad of militia per 20 HU remaining
rounded in the defender's favor. Use overrun rules w/ a city defense
bonus for all units. If a cybership, a Combat Engineer or Marine Combat
Engineer unit is needed to bypass the electronic defenses and
cyberwalls. Roll a 6 sided die. On a roll of 6, the Engineers have
bypassed security and taken control of the AI. On a roll of 1, the ship
has the option to scuttle/self-destruct w/ the engineers trapped
inside. Each CE/MCE squad may attempt once per turn. Self-destruct has
same result as and OGRE.
