That's a good idea!

I thought about that. It depends on whether or not there is a ballast
on the vessel.

*L* Worse. I'm an

one of the few dual citizens on the list. *S*

What I meant was that if the ships are considered to be fairly small
to FT ships, fighters would be very tiny, say no more than a metre or
two in
size. So, fighters wouldn't be "fighters". That's why I thought that
probably wouldn't be used. The same would happen in a fighter game of
where a fighter is represented by, say, a mass 10 ship.
