So far we can confirm that we have 1 Guncutter - because we have used it.
Do we have any Barges or Shuttles?. If not there's going to be a decided limit to the cargo we can procure from or trade to primative planets.


I think we can forget hit and run actions in space combat. We have no capacity to implement such.

What happens if we break the guncutter? Do we have to try to land the Article of Faith?

Also do we have any ground vehicles whatsoever?

Starships come equipped with enough shuttlecaft to perform hit and run attacks. They should also have enough heavy lifters to get cargo on and off planet.

How many isn't stated in the rules.

I asked what the Fantasy Flight Forum thought, and got this reply:

Battlefleet Koronus, p. 11 - Ships without Launch Bays:
Quote:
"Not every starship has dedicated launch bays to host whole squadrons of attack craft and shuttles. However, most starships have some sort of landing bay with room for shuttles and small craft. Generally, Imperial ships are too large easily land on a planetís surface, and small craft become vital for loading crew and cargo, and resupplying the vessel.

The size of these small bays can vary wildly based on a shipís size and class. However, if GMs or players wish to determine how many shuttles a ship may have room for, a useful guideline is that a ship has room for one lighter, shuttle, or heavy lifter for every 5 points of Space its hull has. In general, these vehicles shouldnít be larger than 50 metres. However, if a ship has a cargo hold component (such as the Cargo Hold and Lighter Bay), they should be able to hold an additional four vehicles."


Using that equation, our Ship would have 40 Space and a Cargo bay, giving 12 vehicles.
