Design Notes -This was in my draft file, dated Oct 16, 2011.  It's a passenger car for the highway.  It's been so long since I've thought in a RPG way, that I don't remember what things would be needed (I've added a few, like the radio).  The WG/WH are thinner than I'd like because of the personal equipment.  That's 24 lbs - 6 WG - that can be added.  True, I could've taken it off the main armor, but if I see any car with less than 30 on a side, I think it's dead meat.

Originally this had my "Golden Triangle" of weapons: (1) VMG, (2) FOJ, (3) MD.  I changed VMG because of weight and the MD because I wanted a space for the FE.

What I need to determine is if a rollcage, and FE for that matter, worth less WG and/or vehicular armor?

Name Notes -Hekaton is short for the Hecatonchires - the freaky looking 100 armed dudes in Greek mythology.  This is the named group for a set of some of the moons of Saturn.
