S is for System Defense Boat

"Quantity has a quality all its own." - Joseph Stalin

System Defense Boats can serve a wide variety of functions. This one has been outfitted to carry a squad of troops for customs inspections and boarding actions. The classic Traveller books do a pretty good job of describing the System Defense Boat, so I'm not going to write too much about them here. Check out Supplement 7 - Traders and Gunboats and JTAS #9 for more information.

I've got plans to design a jump shuttle for it, but that will have to wait until later.

For a higher resolution PDF, click this link: (Traveller Stardrake System Defense Boat deck plan). The deckplan was created to be printed out on 30"x42". Scale is 1" = 5'-0" so it can be used with 25mm miniatures. Enjoy!


  1. awesome, i love deckplans and this one is great, keep up the good work, love the whole series.

  2. Looks good. More like a police or customs boat than a full fledged SDB. Maybe it deserves a big brother at 500T?
