Indeed -- I'd prefer one of my INS subs with the 5-6 points of Metal.

I look at the _Shuriken HR_ as a road-raider ambush design; pops out of cover, "volleys the pila", and hopes like heck the opponent doesn't survive. I think there's a design like that in one of the old TSR _CW_ adventure books (usually, it doesn't work :) ).
