Has anyone worked out what the relative vehicle sizes and signatures might tally to in "real" life? It may be that I'm just missing it, but I just see a raw numerical value with a ten-point spread with a single small/large breakpoint that doesn't have any examples that might help in determining what a vehicle's signature might be. Has anyone tried to work this out?

My best guess:

6 - Ultralight Vehicle
5 - Recon Vehicle or Bike
4 - Heavy Recon Vehicle or Wheeled Tank/Light Tank
3 - Light Tank
2 - Main Battle Tank
1 - Main Battle Tank
0 - Heavy MBT
-1 - Heavy MBT
-2 - "Light" Superheavy Tank - eg. Plasmablast "Tigerclaw" tank
-3 - Superheavy Tank - eg. Baneblade or Shadowsword
-4 - Large Superheavy tank or Light BOLO. - eg. Warhound Titan

Does that look right? Basically I'm trying to build a force and need a place to start on this to understand size and such relative to the game's mechanics. Any advice from more experienced SLT players would be helpful.

Players can 'scale' the list you've created to their liking; a large number of players (and the units in most of the books) place the equivalent of a modern MBT (M1A2/Challenger II) at Signature 3. Keep in mind that a vehicle's Signature is not just a reflection of physical size, but also includes the heat and electronic emission that the increased number of systems and weapons produce at lower Signature ratings.

The scaling I usually use when creating units is:

6: light recon/Jeep
5: recon/light tank/1-ton pickup
4: medium tank/ deuce-and-a-half
3: MBT
2-1: Heavy MBT
0 to -1: 'Light' Superheavy
-2 to -4: superheavy/heavy walker
-5 to -12 BOLO/Titan territory

This keeps gameplay running at a reasonable clip as the majority of units are eliminated with a single penetrating hit. There's also less record-keeping involved when your MBT don't each require their own damage tracking. ;)

Thanks for this. I was looking for something like that to see if I can build stats for the O8 3mm figures.
