	We ristricted the arc's on the weapons on advanced drive ships
as we felt
it might otherwise penalise those using K-Guns and advanced drives, who
obviously limited to 1 arc with K-3's and above. However if this is not
"real" problem, and having multi arced weapons on advanced drives (other
than the savasku/bioships) does not cause any kind of disbalance, then
that case I think I foresee some serious redesigning in my groups corner
the galaxy. But just to be sure, having advanced drives with 3 arc B3's
ok if your opponant is using advanced drives and single arc K-guns?

Knife fighting range is good, it's always served me well...
