Every laser and DFFG in sight can hit it, not to mention missiles. A
GZG-verse entry might read
"EU cruisers Duquesne and Tourville found out the hard way that a)
local militia with no ability to produce their own anti-ship missiles
could nonethless have Anglian Confed "advisors" with AC "surplus"
surface-to-orbit missiles; and b) ship-mounted point defense systems
are intended for space, with multi-thousand-kilometer liines of sight,
no horizon effects, no atmosphere effects, no background clutter."
