Designer Notes
Created during the War of the Alliance to replace the then-obsolete Mother Springer, the Barnaby was noticably sturdier and faster than its predecessor. Its tempered steel armor, while extremely cheap and cost efficient, was replaced with the more standard durasheet plating that is the trademark of the late 19th and 20th century military vehicles. Many of the engineers who worked on the model were inspired by the northern Behemoth and copied most of its flaws along with its advantages. For instance, the Barnaby has cramped passenger seats and a poor ventilation system which does little toimprove morale of the crew. The Barnaby also has a very large radar signature and attracts a great deal more attention than it should, sometimes jeopardizing missions of a more discreet nature. Compared to the Behemoth, however, the Barnaby has benefitted from several improvements, mostly on its movement system. It is substantially faster and handles rough terrain more easily than the Behemoth. Its wheels and axles have been reinforced to withstand greater damage, and its diesel engine generates twice as much power as the Northern transport. Better yet, the Barnaby is slightly cheaper than the Behemoth, demonstrating once more the superior skill and efficiency of Southern engineers.
