Survey and mining vessel. YM-2800 secures itself to surface of asteroid or planet, uses powerful plasma beam cutters and other drilling devices to blast through the rocky surface to the ore below.
YM-2800 has heavy particle shielding, it does not have ray shields as std eqpt (this one has no ray shields). The plasma beam cutter consumes so much power that the ship loses all shielding and can fire no other wpns in the rd when cutting beam is used. Ship’s shield and wpns sys become f’nal at start of the pilot’s next turn.
Plasma beam can be used to drill into a starship creating a breach through which boarding party can enter. Std action pilot makes an atttack w/plasma beam cutter vs ship in adjacent sq. If att successful, limpet mv into target sq, and attaches itself to hull of target ship w/o triggering a collision.
Ea rd thereafter, as std action, pilot can use cutting beam to make a grapple check and deal Dam to target ship = grapple check result, ignoring target ship SR. When target ship has taken cumulative Dam from the drill >= Dam Threshhold, limpet ship punches through and boarding party can enter ship.
