I didn't say there was no concievable reason to do it. I did think of that one specifically. It's jsut that the whole smells to me of rules-lawyering rather than engineering.

It seems designed to take advantage of some of Spaceships' simplifying assumptions. If you went to a system like Ve2 you could ahve any combination of weapons and armor you wanted and it wouldn't require any exotic maniipualtion of the rules at all.

My impulse when i come up against one of Spaceships' inherent limits is to stop rather than finagle my way around it.
