4e Conversion

Finally converting the hoary old third edition GURPS: Traveller weapons to fourth edition.

4e changed a LOT about how damage is done, so the conversion isn't near as simple as GURPS: WW2 was.

Worse, the conceptualization of the weapons have changed quite a bit from 1977 to today.

Staying as true as possible to the 3e stats gives guns that are notably inferior to the 4e equivalents in Ultra-Tech.

GURPS: Interstellar Wars is 4e native and it just uses the weapons stats from the Basic Set, so there's a strong temptation to simply use Ultra-Tech and note that Weapon A from UT is Weapon B from Traveller.
