You have a size 2 vehicle with 3 weapons plus the "free" APSW. Too 
many weapons.

In DS the points system takes into account weapon size and type as 
consumers (or not) of power (HELs and Gauss type weapons need a 
certain size) and the speed/type of vehicle motive system as a 
consumer of power. In SG points are superfluous. Apply the logic to 
the force. NAC fast reaction forces use wheeled and fast hover. NAC 
heavy units (IMHO) use tracked in some cases and fancy stuff uses 

If you have mercenaries, then GRAV (OU Mercs) or Hover (LLAR Mercs).
