I do not have FB2.    Yes, the double armor is purely a space saver.
You mean now I have to change all my designs?  Actually, only those
without shields get extra armor, but once Steve leaves the area
(*sniff*  he lost his job and got another upstate)
I'll probably cut down the amount of armor.  He just rolls an inordinate
amount of 6s with beam dice.  I think he takes my 6s because I
sure don't roll many.

Umm, you mean any ship I design that has the same systems as a published
design but layed out differently with a different silhouette outline is 
Although, I do mention them as coming from the published designs.  :)
I'll remove them from the page.

When in "reality" all ships are really the size of a pinhead on top of
Newer designs along the same lines using the same mini are smaller (mass
- 144).
One only has so many miniatures, and this is one of my favorite.
