That's an awful lot of self-designs. I'd change a lot of them to
and buy from X".

The background I wrote for the IC indicates that the major families are
in filthy lucre. I see the IC as being a major customer for just about
with various factions within the IC tending to buy from various major
or at best, producing under licence. So an IC fleet would be composed of
cast-offs from everybody, but lots of them. And some of the cast-offs
be so extensively rebuilt internally as to be new designs.

Capital ships might be a different matter. I see most nations that "roll
own" (as well as buying) mainly concentrating on the smaller ships, size
and below. The Big Stuff requires major dockyards - so are beyond the
of the smaller nations. The IC might be different, buying lots of
Ibezas, Nanuchkas,
Tacomas, Stolschen etc while building their own Garuda and Sukarno class
and SuperDreadnaughts.

I want to leave plenty of room for GZG to expand its range of figures
running into limitations, yet allow people who wish to field a
reasonable IC
(or PAU or whatever) fleet to do so using the existing range.

Again, very much IMHO and an opinion subject to change as the result of
from others. These are Ideas. I'm not saying they are Good Ideas.
