Ammo Notes

GURPS Traveller missile racks hold a certain amount of ammunition each.

GT missile come in two sizes: 250mm and 500mm.  500mm is restricted to the Imperial Navy.  The other races have missiles of similar size and are similarly restricted.

250mm Turret Missile Racks hold
   70 missiles at TL7
   75 missiles at TL8
   76 missiles at TL9
   77 missiles at TL10+

500mm Turret Missile Racks hold
   8 missiles at TL7
   10 missiles at TL8+

The 50 ton missile bay uses 250mm missiles and holds
   3,500 missiles at TL7
   3,700 missiles at TL8
   3,800 missiles at TL9+

The 100 ton missile bay uses 500mm missiles and holds
   800 missiles at TL7
   1,000 missiles at TL8-9
   1,100 missiles at TL10+

The 500mm missiles do, on average, twice as much explosive damage or three times as much kinetic damage per missile.  Because GT RoF is 1 missile every 20 minutes and each rack can only control one missile, and a missile can run for up to an hour, this matters a lot.

The 50 ton bay can fire and control up to 50 missiles.  The 100 ton bay can fire and control up to 100 missiles.
