How many PDS would that be?  60 or so?	*makes a note to self to look at
FB1 when he gets home*	Not sure that would stop 41 fighter groups...

Heh... all right.  How about I'll make it moot?  I'll tweak the thing to
get rid of the needle beams and give it some class 4's.  As I observed,
massive plasma armament I added in the first FB2 version probably makes
needle beams obsolete for the purposes I had them there before.

(Yeah, that's a minor cop-out... but getting a few ideas _was_ the
that I signed on to this list in the first place, so... ;)
