Something like that, yeah.

Spaceships simply follows the SSR table, I suggest doing the same - so TL 9 would be 3 DR (10 for just front), 11 would be 7 DR (20 for just front), 12 would be 10 DR (30 for just front).

Unfortunate. You may want to redo the calculations at each TL and for each clamshell material to figure out if there's a different pattern. Or, because anything TL9+ is pretty much theoretical anyway, just go with Spaceships with x2.5 to DR and price. You'll have to decide if you want to go with Spaceship's assumption of increasing cost with increasing TL or UT's assumption of Heavy Clamshell being the same price regardless of TL.
