Intent: A submarine for the TU.
Development Thread: If necessary.
Manufacturer: The Techno Union http://starwarsrp.ne...3-techno-union/
Model: W.E.V. - Water Exploration Vehicle
Affiliation: The Techno Union
Material: Durasteel, electronics, reinforced glass.
Minimum Crew: 1
Optimal Crew: 2
Propulsion: Jet Propeller
Top Speed: 90km/h
Armaments: 2 Light Blasters, 1Heavy Blaster. Rack of 10 Mini-torpedoes, each of which half about a 1/3 of the power of a proton torpedo.
Squadron Count: 15(weight) 20(size)
Passenger Capacity: 1. Has space for 2, but not enough life-support. If say, someone had a diving suit + tanks on, they would be fine.
Cargo Capacity: A few toolboxes, maybe a small piece of equipment, nothing more.
Misc. Equipment: Sonar, Radar, Heat sensors, Life-Form scanner, ore scanner, liquid sampler, buoyancy tanks. 5 Reserve mini-torpedoes.
Description: The WEV is a vehicle designed to explore underwater. With many planets completely covered in water, and many more with large oceans, the TU decided it was worthwhile to design a submarine to explore these areas. It is not meant for battle, but for exploration, though it does have a range of armaments, in case of emergency. It packs a large array of sensors, designed to get the most information out of its situation. It is fast and nimble, and can be easily carried to its destination by a cargo shuttle.

Can you tell me a little more about these torpedoes? Like what's their strength compared to something like a proton torpedo? How many of them does the WEV carry?
I might suggest expanding this a bit more to include specific sensors. Some sensor ideas might include Sonar, radar, Life form indicator, or specialized exploration sensors (maybe like an Ore scanner.
