Brings up a question though.  Given that we all agree to one level or
that targeting solutions become more problematic for the Kra'Vak as
increases would it not be better to reverse the modes of fire?	In other
words, rapid fire is used at long ranges to cover all the possible
interception points while slower, higher powered shots have more utility
close where the firing solutions are much simpler.
