Then that's something that bears attention. Do class 1 (lowest) K'V
railguns have the ability to act as a PDS like class 1 beams do? I would
think so.

Perhaps they should also have a "scattergun-like" smaller system that's
more like a disposable PDS at a correspondingly reduced cost.

My personal opinion is that every system - on its own - needs to be
balanced between the three essential factors of FT: performance, mass,
cost. Anything that is not, will either be ignored or abused when it
time for free-design fleets.
