It could be just your notation method, as you seem to be using FT2 arcs.
(If I've got the right person's page.)

>The Virgin Mary class Heavy Dreadnought
>Displacement: 25000 tonnes (Mass factor 250) 
>Armament: 2xClass 2 Battery (360/FH), 3xClass 3 batteries, (LS/RS/FH),
2xClass 1 Battery, 14 tons module space

The above notation you've got indicates to me: AP/FP/F/FS/AS.  It didn't
help that the 14 tons of module space is noted as holding only 1 class-3
or 2 SML+ 4 magazine.
The notation for the Class-3s should be: AP/FP/F, FP/F/FS, F/FS/AS.

What?  5-arc?  (Checks capital ships).	I don't have more than three
arcs on any class 3 batteries--on my medium cruisers it's only got 1
arc.  A lot of the twos are 360, just in case.	My ships outgun NAC or
ESU ships of simillar weight.
