Anyone got stats for the ghost, banshee, warthog, and other vehicles from Halo 2, and how about that hover boat from Half-life 2?
You can find the halo vehicle stats over on the d20 video games boards in the halo thread.
Dr. Morbanz, what's awesome?

Sorry. Just the sheer number of vehicles and the detail. It just kind of struck me as really cool. :D
I see, that's cool.

By the way, I hope to have the next page of weapons-for-vehicles by the end of this week!
This is the best of threads, I look forward to seeing the vehicals and hmmm weapons. I guess too much and I like the knowledgable posts here to make my mess better.

Thanks man.
Wonderful thread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You could do a predator drone with damage that its missles do you could also do strats for a raven its a small craft that a soldier assembles on the ground and uses to scout ahead ( it is still being developed by the military and i heard about it from a recent issue of popular Science magazine)
MQ-1 Predator
Passengers: -
Cargo Capacity: 450 lb. (204kg)
Initiative: -4
Maneuver: -4
Top Speed: 246 (24)
Defense: 6
Hardness: 5
Hit Points: 22
Size: Gargantuan
Purchase DC: 48
Restriction: Mil (+3)

The Predator is 27 ft. long, 7 ft. tall and has a 48.7 ft. wingspan, so it occupies a fighting space of 6 squares (3) long, 2 (1) squares tall and 10 (5) squares wide. It can go up to 140 miles/hour but is usually found cruising at 84 mph, or 148 (15) squares per round (sq/rd). It has a flight ceiling of at least 25,000 ft. and an endurance of 16 to 40 hours. Its payload is intended to carry (and use) two Hellfire missiles, guided by the Multispectral Targeting System (MTS) with integral electro-optical, infrared, laser illuminator and laser designator in one ball.


This "medium-altitude, long-endurance unmanned aerial vehicle system" (USAF) has been in use since 1995, seeing combat over Afghanistan, Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq and Yemen under the aegis of the USAF (at least once under the CIA) and since 2004 is being used by the Italian Air Force as well. The US Navy has since adopted its own variant, the RQ-1 Mariner. (The Department of Defense changed the USAF Predator's designation to "Multi-role" in 2002, and the USAF has declared as of this writing 68 active-duty Predators here, although this page stats the MQ-1B.)

A number of Predators have quick-reaction laser designators allowing them to act as as airborne forward air controllers for allied tactical aircraft. Following a series of tests in 2001, some of those Predators have been armed with a pair of AGM-114 Hellfire missiles guided by those laser designators. The most famous use of a such unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) was on November 3, 2002, when the CIA used a Predator to fire a Hellfire missile at a car in Yemen, killing Qaed Senyan al-Harthi, an al-Qaeda leader thought to be responsible for the USS Cole bombing. It was the first direct US strike in the War on Terror that was not in Afghanistan.


Buying a whole Predator system for Purchase DC 53 ($25 million) pays for FOUR Predator dones with sensors, a ground control station (GCS), a Predator primary satellite link communication suite and anywhere from 55 to 82 personnel for 24-hour operations. Each Predator air vehicle can be disassembled into six main components and loaded into a container nicknamed "the coffin." The largest component is the GCS, designed to roll into a C-130 Hercules. The Predator primary satellite link consists of a 6.1 meter (20 ft) satellite dish and associated support equipment, providing communications between the ground station and the aircraft when it is beyond line-of-sight and is a link to networks that disseminate secondary intelligence. The RQ-1A system needs 5,000 ft. by 125 ft. (1,500 metres by 40 metres) of hard surface runway with clear line-of-sight to each end from the GCS to the air vehicles, and all components on the same airfield. (I do not know if the RQ-1B needs more or less.)

Only one operator actually pilots (using a color nose camera) and controls a Predator, but there should be at least two or three sensor operators for the daytime (full motion video) TV camera, the infrared electro-optical camera (same, but low-light/night) and a synthetic aperture radar (SAR) that produces still-frame radar images for looking through smoke, clouds or haze. On the RQ-1B, either the daytime or the infrared camera may be operated simultaneously with the radar.

Umm, Charisto, do you mean the Dragonfly? And what do you think of this?
You could do a predator drone with damage that its missles do you could also do strats

P.S. The hell was this???

Parenthesis mine. there is a variant that drops bomb-lets and is also made for mayhem.

I believe that is what is being said. Is that he is asking for the damage for the 'Hellfire Missle' and perhaps the airmobile IED. Hmmm yummy

I'm still working on the vehicle weapons, btw ...
This stuff looks great!!!! :D

Well done, everyone!

But I would like to request stats for a Jaguar XKR. There are some specs on the Jaguar site, but I guess you can find your own. I'd like the fastest version of this one possible, if you know of any faster Jaguar, please tell me so.

Thank you in advance.
i would love to see stats on the japanise submarine aircraft carrier the I-400 and stats for the Aichi M6A1Seiran torpedo bomber that it carried

The I-400 was 79 (40) squares long, 8 (4) squares wide and 5 squares tall (3). It was armed with eight 21-inch torpedo tubes (10 torpedoes each), a .50-cal deck gun, a 25mm anti-air cannon on the bridge, and nine 25mm anti-aircraft cannons, on three triple-cannon mounts atop the most distinctive feature of the ship, its cylindrical hangar 23 (12) squares long and 3 (2) squares wide, leading to a pneumatic catapult 17 (9) squares long, all for three M6A1 Seiran torpedo bombers. Under the hangar there was a special compartment with four aircraft torpedoes, fifteen bombs (400 lb. or 1,288 lb.), and gun ammunition; more shells were stored topside in pressure-proof, ready-use lockers handy to the guns. Also, the I-400 had a diving time of 56 seconds (just over 9 full rounds), and within 45 minutes notice or after surfacing, all three bombers could be launched.

Incidentally, the "lavatories" consisted of holes in the decks above "sanitary" tanks ...

The Seiran is 8 (4) squares long, 8 (4) squares wide (wingspan) and 3 (2) squares tall. With the two floats attached, it can land on water, but without floats, all three of a I-400's Seirans could be launched by a dedicated, well-practiced crew in less than 15 minutes. Of course, circumstances might force a floats-less Seiran stranded in the air to ditch out over the water ...

The M6A1 Seiran is the corresponding "disassembly" torpedo bomber designed for use with the aircraft carrier I-400-class and AM-class submarines. Each had their assembly points coated in fluorescent paint for nighttime assembly, allowing four trained crewmen to prepare an aircraft for launch in only seven minutes. Each plane that returned to an I-400 (preferably with floats, albeit they had longer range and shorter launch time without them) would land alongside the catapult and be lifted back up with a hydraulic crane, but the AM-class submarine could also (and was) modified to carry a pair of Seiran bombers.

To fit inside a 3.5 m (11 ft 6 in) diameter, cylinder-shaped hangar, the main wing spar would rotate 90° once the deck crew removed the two floats. After rotating the wings, the crew folded them back to lie flat against the fuselage. About 2/3 of the each side of the horizontal stabilizer also folded down, likewise the tip of the vertical stabilizer. Deck crews stored the floats and their support pylons in separate compartments.

While twenty-eight Aichi Seirans were built, none ever flew a combat mission. The last remaining Aichi Seiran - incidentally, the last known produced, and possibly never flown - is undergoing restoration at the National Air and Space Museum's Garber Facility.
thanks Lu Baihu for the stats for th I-400 but what do the numbers in the () after the lenths in sqaures mean ?
any one got stats for a p-51D Mustang fighter
OH! MY! GOD! I totally applaud you guys. This beyond words. I do have a request I would like to make though. As it is integral to an upcoming adventure for my players, I was wondering if you could do the stats for a stretch SUV, a stretch Hummer H2, and/or a stretch limousine (a luxury sedan, such as a Lincoln Town car, or a Cadillac). I don't really know that much about cars (next to nothing), so I can't really give you too many specifics, but ask any questions if you need clarification, or feel free to make choices about the details yourself if need be.

Those are the dimensions in chase scale, as opposed to character scale. Speaking of which, lemme fix the length.
thats makes sense thanks

dose any one have stats for the mach 5 from speed racer (the origonal on the new show)
Hey, I don't want to nag or anything, as I realize that you are all swamped with requests, but I just want to make sure that you saw my request for the stretch limo, SUV, and H2. It's really important for an upcoming adventure, so if it's not too much trouble, could you get the stats? At any rate, thank you so much for all of the other vehicles. I love, admire, respect, etc what all of you are doing so much!
i thought you all might like this and that it might present a small challenge for you guys. just something to play with.

any one got stats for a p-51D Mustang fighter

P-51D Mustang
Passengers: 0
Cargo Capacity: 2000 lb.
Initiative: -4
Maneuver: -4
Top Speed: 769 (77)
Defense: 6
Hardness: 10
Hit Points: 35

Purchase DC: 31
Restriction: Res (+2)

The Mustang is 7 squares long, 8 squares wide and 3 squares tall. Its combat range is 1000 miles (1600 km) and its service ceiling 41,800 feet (12.7 km), and the Mustang usually cruises at 484 (48) squares per round.

The P-51D (only) Mustang carries no less than six .50-caliber (12.7mm) machine guns, four per wing; the inner two have 400 rounds, the outer have 270 rounds. The P-51D also carries 2,000 lb. (907.19 kg) of bombs, and some aircraft have rocket rails added to the undersides of the wings to carry up to eight 5-inch (127mm) rockets per plane.


Though the P-51 Mustang entered service more than halfway after World War II (in December 1943), it was so successful a fighter plane that it is still regarded as one of the very best piston-engined fighters ever made, and its final production version was among the fastest propeller fighters ever.

The P-51 had already proven itself by its astonishing performance that exceeded the latest British fighters and ability to do so at great distances from England (the secret was a Mustang Mk.IA airframe using a Rolls Royce Merlin 68 supercharged engine) using its licensed V-1650 engine, but the current production P-51B and P-51C (built at Inglewood, California and Dallas, Texas respectively) had only four cannons, as well as poor rear visibility from within the canopy, long a complaint of British pilots, many having taken to fitting later-model Supermarine Spitfire canopies to their Mustangs as a remedy.

The P-51D would fix these though by the addition of two more cannons and the use of a bubble-style canopy for excellent all-around visibility, whereupon its combat performance was boosted such as to make it the unofficial flagship fighter of the Allies, or at least the United States. In fact, Chuck Yeager was the first Allied pilot to shoot down a Me 262, and he did so in a P-51D. Nearly half of all Mustangs would be the P-51D variant, at 7,956 out of 14,855 ordered Mustangs.

Most stratgically importantly, the P-51 was the remedy to Italian general Giulio Douhet's (1869-1930) incorrect thesis that bombing would be the be-all and end-all of 20th-century warfare, that bombers could afford inaccuracy and would probably not be intercepted anyway. The Royal Air Force (UK) and the Luftwaffe had both found out that single-engine fighters could easily intercept and outgun multi-engine bombers, something that the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC) learned late in the late summer of 1943 when "saturation" bombing resulted in attrition losses exceeding 10% per raid. The P-51 changed the equation by not only having the range to escort bombers for a cheaper per-plane price than the Lockheed P-38 Lightning, but having individual performance exceeding the Luftwaffe's twin-engine, rocket-firing designs, which were quickly chased from the skies. Luftwaffe pilots than began try hit-and-run (grouping en masse well in front of the bombers for a single pass and fleeing before escorts could react) interceptions, but the new May 1944 policy of "active counter-interception" let the Mustangs break into dogfights instead of letting the Luftwaffe keep the initiative, and as a result the Mustangs won almost every time they broke into these individual dogfights, crushing Luftwaffe counter-bomber attempts and thus facilitating the bombing runs. P-51s would also be deployed in the Far East later in 1944, and operated there both in close-support and escort missions, such as guarding B-29 bombers from Iwo Jima to Japan.

After World War I, the designated P-51D (Pursuit) became the F-51D (Fighter) in 1946, and "finally" was used by the new United States Air Force as tactical bombers and close air support for ground forces in the Korean War until withdrawn from combat in 1953. The last Mustangs were discarded by the USAF, Reserve and National Guard units in 1957, but many remain airworthy across the globe in private hands.
The P-51D (only) Mustang carries no less than six .50-caliber (12.7mm) machine guns, four per wing;

I think you mean eight. Especially since it was eight.
Otherwise, it's lovely work. My applause and congratulations.
Lu Baihu thanks for the p-51 info

Whoops on the "four" per wing, it should be three per wing, but Wikipedia said six guns, ditto for Global Security, so I went with them even though I initially thought it was eight.

Nonetheless, Gunrock and hellkite2501, thanks! :-)

Can't help you with the Mach 5, hellkite2501, sorry.

Timmo_Turren, can you give me exact model numbers on the stretches you want?

ku, I'd like to wait for numerics before posting the Jeep Hurricane. Considering though that it won't be a production number, why do you want it for your campaign?
naw. i just thought it would be an interresting challenge to see you guys take on.
this thread is great
Okay, I know nothing about cars, but I did some searching on the internet, and I have some links at the bottom incase my info isn't enough. Thanks in advance.

Here's the weapons for page 2's armed vehicles. PM or reply for any questions about weapon stats, and tell me the scale you want. (ie "d20" range increments such as 80 ft. for the M16A2 or more realistic range increments such as "maximum effective range 550 meters," ditto for damage scales.)

The following abbreviations will be used in all of my vehicle weapon posts:
AAM: Air-to-Air Missile, or Anti-Air Missile
AAMG: Anti-Aircraft Machine Gun
ADCAP: ADvanced CAPability
AGM: Air-to-Ground Missile
AMRAAM: Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile
ASM: Anti-Ship Missile
ASRAAM: Advanced Short Range Air-to-Air Missile

JDAM: Joint Direct Attack Munition
LGM: Laser-Guided Munitions
LGB: Laser-Guided Bomb
MBDA: Matra BAe Dynamics*
MICA: Missile d'Interception et de Combat Aérien
SAM: Surface-to-Air Missile
VLS: Vertical Launch System

* The actual company MBDA consists of a merger of Aérospatiale Matra Missiles (of EADS), Alenia Marconi Systems missile interests and Matra BAe Dynamics.


Sukhoi SU-37 Terminator "Super Flanker": One GSh-30-1 30mm cannon and up to 18,075 lb. of ordnance, including R-73/R-77 “Amraamski” AAMs, ASMs, bombs, rockets, drop tanks and ECM pods carried on fourteen external hardpoints.

Lockheed-Martin JSF (F-35): One GAU-12/U "Equalizer" 25mm cannon (internal with 180 rounds in F-35A, as an external gun pod with 220 rounds in F-35B/C) and four AAMs with a mix of AIM-9X Sidewinder missiles and either AIM-120 AMRAAMs (USAF) or AIM-132 ASRAAMs (UK RAF/RN).

The AIM-9X Sidewinder is a new variant with an imaging infrared focal plane array seeker with claimed 90° off-boresight capability, compatibility with helmet-mounted sights (the new U.S. JHMCS, Joint Helmet-Mounted Cueing System), and a totally new thrust-vectoring system replacing the traditional control surfaces. It retains the same motor and warhead of the AIM-9M "Mike," but its lower drag gives it improved range and speed.

EF2000 Eurofighter “Typhoon": One Mauser BK-27 27x145mm linkless feed cannon (150 box) and eight weapon hardpoints for a variety of missiles and bombs. These sample missile configurations come from the official Eurofighter Web site, specified by role:
Air Superiority: Six BVRAAMs, six ASRAAMs and three fuel tanks.
Air Interdiction: Two stand-off missiles, two ALARMs, four AMRAAMs, two ASRAAMs and three fuel tanks.
Air Defense Suppression: Six ALARMs, four AMRAAMs, two ASRAAMs and one fuel tank.
Close Air Support: Six Brimstone ATGM launchers (3 missiles each), four AMRAAMs, two ASRAAMs, fuel tank.
Maritime Attack: Four Penguine ASMs, four AMRAAMs, two ASRAAMs and two fuel tanks.
The Eurofighter can also carry Sidewinder missiles, MBDA Meteor AAMs (UK) and IRIS-T SRAAMs (Germany) for air-to-air, and/or ALARMs, AGM-84 Harpoon ASMs, AGM-88 HARM anti-radar, Paveway (2, 3, Enhanced) bombs and JDAM-equipped bombs for air-to-surface attack. Finally, for “strategic” (read: starship scale) operations, the Eurofighter can carry Taurus (Germany/Sweden) or Storm Shadow (UK)/SCALP EG (France) cruise missiles. It is recommended for cinematic campaigns (of course) that Eurofighter should mount only one fuel tank, to free up two weapon hardpoints.

Dassault Rafale: One 30x150mm cannon (DEFA 554, GIAT 30 M791 or GIAT 30/719B) and eight AAMs (a mix of MBDA MICA, Sidewinder missiles, AIM-120 AMRAAMs and AIM-132 SRAAMs). It can carry conventional bombs, and for AGMs it can carry the SCALP EG cruise missile, the MBDA Apache anti-runway missile (a version of the SCALP EG that disperses cluster submunitions instead of using one high-penetration warhead), the MBDA Meteor AAM and even as a last resort the ASMP nuclear missile. (An advanced long-range version known as ASMP-A or ASMP+ is under development with intended service entry in 2010.)

Note: Use of this final option is a serious matter, strictly for games where the players, the BBEGs or the French government intend to and will use it. The ASMP is a supersonic standoff missile four squares long and weighing 1896 lb. (round up to 1900 lb. or 1 ton if you like) that flies at Mach 2 to Mach 3 on its liquid-fuel ramjet, with a range between 80 km (49.7 miles) and 300 km (186.4 miles) depending on flight profile. The warhead itself is a single TN81 with either 150 kiloton or 300 kiloton yields.

Lockheed-Martin/Boeing F-22 Raptor: One M61A2 20mm cannon (480 rounds), up to six AIM-120C AMRAAMs, two AIM-9X Sidewinder missiles and two 1,000 lb. JDAM bombs. Note that these are all internal weapons that do not detract from its "stealth" rating (if applicable), but if need be four external hardpoints can be fitted to carry weapons or fuel tanks, each with a capacity of 5,000 lb. (Although the USAF has not expressed a need for such a capability, an all-missile loadout is possible.)

Mk941-U SSBN Typhoon-class Submarine: D-19 VLS (20 missiles), two 650mm (26-inch) torpedo tubes and four 533mm (21-inch) torpedo tubes. The 533mm torpedo tubes may launch Novator SS-N-15 Starfish cruise missiles (which can carry 20kt nuclear warheads) or Type 53 torpedoes, while the 650mm torpedo tubes can launch Novatory SS-N-16 Stallion ASMs, Type 65 torpedoes and mines. Finally, the VLS deploys RSM-52/R-39 (SS-N-20 Sturgeon) nuclear missiles, each with 10 nuclear warheads and 100 Kt per warhead.

Note: In Russian this is the Akula-class (“Shark”) submarine. NATO apparently derived the name 'Typhoon' from a 1974 speech by Leonid Brezhnev which mentioned a new SSBN called the “Tayfun.”

Mk971-U SSN Akula-class Submarine: Four internal 533mm torpedo tubes, six external 533mm torpedo tubes, four 650mm torpedo tubes and one Strela SA-N-5/8 portable missile launcher (18 missiles). The 650mm tubes may be fitted with liners to “caliber convert” for a resulting armament of fourteen 533mm torpedo launch tubes and the Strela missile launcher. Loadouts are identical to those of the Mk941U SSBN. The Strela provides air defense in case the submarine must remain surfaced. This U-variant is the Akula II, and holds up to forty “ship-scale” weapons (torpedoes/missiles/mines).

Note: In Russian this is the Bars-class (“Snow Leopard”) submarine.

SSN-774 Virginia-class NSSN Attack Submarine: Four 650mm torpedo tubes (Mk48 ADCAP torpedoes), twelve VLS tubes (BGM-109 Tomahawk cruise missiles), Mk60 Captor mines, advanced mobile mines, and unmanned underwater vehicles.

McDonnell Douglas AV-8B Harrier: One GAU-12/U "Equalizer" 25mm cannon (fuselage centerline port pod, 300 rounds in starboard pod), and up to 13,200 lb. (STOL) of ordnance on six underwing (three per) pylons and one fuselage pylon, including cluster bombs, iron bombs, napalm canisters, laser-guided bombs, AGM-65 Maverick AGM and up to four Sidewinder missiles or similar-size infrared-guided missiles. The AV-8B+ Night Attack variant can carry up to four AIM-120 AMRAAMs.

705 Lira Alfa-class Attack Submarine: Six 533mm bow torpedo tubes. The submarine can carry eighteen 53-65K, SET-65 torpedoes, twenty VA-111 torpedoes, twenty-one 81R (SS-N-15) ASMs, twelve SS-N-16 (Vodopad configuration) ASMs or twenty-four mines.

Aérospatiale SA 342 Gazelle: Specify by variant:
SA 341F: One GIAT M.621 20mm cannon (100 rounds) on the starboard side, ROF of 300 or 740 rpm.
SA 341H: Four AT-3 SAGGER ATGMs and two SA-7 GRAIL AAMs, or 128mm or 57mm rocket pods, with one 7.62mm machine gun in the cabin.
SA 342K: Armed anti-tank version with four to six HOT ATGMs.
SA 342L: Either two rocket pods or two FN AA-52 7.62mm machine gun pods (1,000 rounds).
SA 342M: Armed with four to six HOT ATGMs and possibly two MISTRAL AAMs.

Rocket pod options are: two 2.75-in (70mm) rocket pods (7 rockets each), two SNEB 68mm rocket pods (12 rockets each) or two 57mm rockets (18 rockets each).


IronStar23 has already listed a sample loadout for the Eurofighter and for the AH-64 Apache here.
Oh, yeah. Now those vehicles sound ready to rumble. Just a question: submarine warfare: is it like the "typical" D20 Mod vehicle combat, or is it somewhat different? Because, well, looking at all those sub movies out there (Hunt For The Red October, Crimson Tide.... etc), it looks like there's more need for inter-crew cooperation.

Oh, definitely. In a sense, really, submarine warfare (even with plenty of automated systems) amounts to "underwater" starship combat. :D

Incidentally, there was a real, Typhoon-class (941U) Red October. Minus the drive system, of course. ;)

Submarine duels amount more or less to who finds and shoots at the other first. That means Pilot plus all the detection/evasion checks (Hide, Move Silently, Search, Listen and Spot), plus the Initiative roll. Modern submarine technology (ie fire control systems) pretty much make the attack roll a formality, although a miss is still possible.


A submarine vs. surface ship duel gets a bit more complicated; both sides can use mines against each other, while submarines and surface ships try to hit each other with torpedoes or depth charges (surface-only, of course), but a carrier of any size has a major advantage: helicopters. ;)

For example, the Wasp-class amphibious assault ship will for the purposes of Sea Control deploy twenty AV-8B Harrier II fighter-bombers and six ASW helicopters. Likewise, the Navy's SH-60 Seahawk (can use UH-60 Blackhawk stats for simplicity, individually tweaked stats for realism) is designed for search and rescue (SAR), drug interdiction, cargo lift, special operations and its primary objective of anti-ship warfare, mainly submarines. This is done by use of various detection methods followed by deployment of one of its two Mk50 torpedoes or AGM-119 Penguin anti-ship missiles.

That is to say, helicopters are effective for maximum speed far ahead of submarines -- the UH-60 Blackhawk can move up to 324 (32) squares per round, as opposed to the 941U's 54 (5) squares per round -- as well as vertical mobility, 360-degree range, and the fact that a carrier can (capability-wise) launch all of its aircraft (as wasteful as that is) just to hunt down and kill one submarine.

Heck, even fixed-wing aircraft such as the Lockheed S-3 Viking can be used for anti-submarine warfare! (The S-3 Viking can tote up to 3,958 lb. of AGM-84 Harpoon missiles, rockets, torpedoes, mines and depth charges.)


Strategic submarine use: Does the submarine get the missile off or not, and is the missile intercepted or not?

Note by the way that external torpedo tubes cannot be reloaded by the crew of a submarine at sea. They can only be reloaded in port or by a submarine tender, a resupply ship.

Does anyone know if a submarine with a vertical launch system (VLS) must be surfaced to use its VLS?

The Tribal-class Destroyer is powered by two Pratt and Whitney FT12AH3 gas turbines. It has a crew of 245. It has two helicopter landing pads and hangers in the rear of the ship. The Tribal-class is 10 squares wide and 85 squares long.

Crew: 245, Passenger(s): 0, Cargo Capacity: 100 tons, Initiative: -8, Maneuver: -8, Top Speed: 67 (7), Defense: -8, Hardness: 15, Hit Points: 100, Size: Colossal, Purchase DC: 63, Restriction: Mil (+3)

No offense, but a top speed of 67 sounds too generous ... unless you know more than we do about the actual top speed of these? ;)

I checked the official page, they put it at 29+ knots, which I rounded just to 30 knots, and at 30 knots it came out to 60.8 or 61 squares per round ...
