I recently learned the following:

MSP == Maintenance Supply Points != Missile Size Points

Ordnance transfer systems are for transferring missiles and are rated in MSP per hour.

Ships have a MSP requirement and require maintenance supplies to function properly.

Missile supply points are not interchangeable with maintenance supply points.

I think NSP (Naval Supply Points) or SSP (Space Supply Points) would be good alternatives to MSP (Maintenance Supply Points). There really isn't any form of ship supply points that factor into anything thats not maintenance plus something like NSP is easily identifiable from GSP (Ground Supply Points).

Starting to figure enough out to play and am having lots of fun.   Reading the fiction threads / AAR’s if helping but not knowing  many of the acronyms is slowing me down.   Sure wish the Search function worked for these things.

What is “GPS” as in
Code: [Select]
MK I Light Cruiser Active Augur Array (1)     GPS 7200     Range 52.8m km    Resolution 120?

And “DCR” as in
Code: [Select]
Dauntless class Light Cruiser      15,000 tons       457 Crew       2,178.8 BP       TCS 300    TH 1,500    EM 0    5000 km/s      Armour 6-54       Shields 0-0       HTK 92      Sensors 5/6/0/0      DCR 12      PPV 72?

Thanks!

GPS is the strength of the active sensor emissions for detection purposes. I can't actually remember what it stands for :)

DCR is damage control rating.

GPS = Gravitational Pulse Strength?
