Who knows? <g> The UNDIA doesn't, that's for sure... they *suspect* (or 
*fear*) that this may be the case, but they don't *know*.

(Unfortunately the FB4 site has limited space for background blurbs -
To'Ki blurb was truncated, and some of the current blurbs for the
designs are even longer that that one. Which is one of the reasons why
and their corresponding designs haven't been posted yet; the other
being me having intermittent access problems with the Magrathea server.)

Lots of human nations have combined forces against the Kra'Vak,
fighting in mix-nation task forces, and several of the minor human
buy warships from more than one major supplier. Why wouldn't the Kra'Vak

clans combine forces against the humans, or buy ships from one another?
they do, would humanity be able to tell the different KV clans apart?

On a more practical note, I'm not planning to sculpt any more 
centre-line-gun KV designs within the foreseeable future. However, the
range is very modular and Jon sells the individual KV bits separately if

you ask him nicely, so you shouldn't have any trouble kitbashing any
centre-line-gun ships you want just like Eric Fialkowski and I've done
latest KV models are all based on my old KV kit-bashes)!

Sounds very much like the To'Ki (FT425) class already shown on the FB4 
site, no? (The To'Ki is almost exactly the same size as the Da'Kak - 
slightly larger, in fact.)
