And that's what makes the FB ships great. They show differing design
philosophy and keep it consistent throughout the fleet. The French
like their ordinance. The Commies like tough ships with lots of
beams. The Germans build space-bricks and like their beams. The NAC?
Well ... who cares what they do. :)
Taking the analysis further they also have differing views on which
classes are more important -- you can also start building a model on
how likely they are to sell ships to other nations. For example, from
memory, The ESU has a huge number of smaller ships but two very large
classes in operation as well. Larger than any other nation. They
have to be prestige ships.
