Obviously your definition of "loaded to the gills" is different from
I recently had a game, 2750 pts a side, basically a tactical exercise
for two players for Cancon 99
 ( see for details )

Anyway... in order to test out my opponent's NSL fleet, I took a fleet
of 1 Jeanne D'Arc, 1 Suffren, 1 Jerez, 6 Triestes, and 9 Mistral-SMRs.
That's 19/10/1 SMLs and 7 fighter groups. In 2760 vs 7000 pts.

No SMLs failed to be within range of 6" of an enemy (11 launchers
survived to fire), but alas I still lost (narrowly) due to a few
mistakes on my part, and a superior enemy admiral. OTOH the enemy fleet
WAS deliberately optimised vs FSE. 

Anyway.... Sick is a 6K pt fleet of 120 or so Mistral-SMRs.
