I included the 1.2 factor for Excellent Streamlining. It's mandatory for any air vehicle that's going to exceed 740 mph. See the table of mopdifiers on p.135.

As for stall speed being relevant it's only so for vehicles without Vectored Thrust which is another thing all G:T ships are built with.

G:T ships can not take off and land like airplanes so there's no reason they should be limited by stall speed in forward flight.
