6.6 Billion each?  There are likely small Warships that are cheaper.  What is the main source of that price, the ATAC , the SDS Drone Computer, or the ARTS upgrades?

The ATAC the main source with the SDS drone computer at a distant second place (a sixth of the ATAC).
The original Model 96C is over 9 Billion as it uses a larger ATAC.....
