1. INTRODUCTION

Several people have asked for an equipment list for Powergame. While I think it should be fairly easy to rate weapons, vehicles and other items with the help of the Universal Power Level Tables, I understand that some examples would come in handy. Thus, without further ado, I present the Hardware Handbook.

The weapons and vehicles described in this supplement illustrate the possibilities of modern firepower by offering game statistics for some of the most common models. Using the Universal Tables and comparing to similar weapons on this list it should be easy to assign stats for any other weapon you want to use in your campaign. Besides, within the compressed power scale of Powergame most items belonging to a given category (such as pistols or main battle tanks) have similar game stats.
