Too bad that even when she does touch it, because of budget cutbacks all that shows up is a few half-crewed dropships!

Considering our Clan's fondness for deception, it wouldn't surprise me if it was revealed that the Ravens were hiding a huge force.

This is the Snow Ravens we're talking about.  There's no such thing as "marginally habitable."
Has TacOps taught you nothing? Of course there are rules for those! :D

Highly doubtful, their fondness is for political deception not military deception.  They don't have the resources to build let alone maintain a huge force.  They are having a hard enough time reactivating their mothballed warships.

Le sigh. A harsh dose of realism.

Political deception and military deception are different sides of the same coin.  And hiding resources isn't that hard a thing to do- just ask the ones who built the WOB shadow divisions.

I overstated the case for lame comic effect.  Here's the actual quote from XTRO: Republic III:

Quote
Dubbed the Ryoken III, this beast seems an odd choice for the Wolves over one of their homegrown designs, and suggests a possible Snow Raven link. [One Clan fielding it is bad enough; two I don’t want to think about.—RM]

FWIW...
