What might be different yet era-appropriate?

What could you do with yet-another 300xl?

What was good armor before Laser Reflective came along?

What fun would it be to get the third laser to fit around the landing gear, so it's on the same plain as the other guns?

That would'a been Weak Undercarriage, wouldn't it? :facepalm:

Note that it may carry up to six bombs(1 per 5 tons) therefore its thrust can be reduced by up to 2! Well, unless you want to bring an Anti-Ship missile or you desperately needs for every bits of gunpowder I don't think that you really want to do that, though.

Also it seems that it is 29 tons, not 30 tons. It has 4 tons of weapons, 9.5 tons of engine, 7.5 tons of armor, and either 3 tons of cockpit and 5 tons of fuel or 2 tons of cockpit and 6 tons of armor. The sum of all of these is 4+9.5+7.5+8=29. Was it intended?

On the same year, with double heat sink you can use ER version of medium lasers instead. That makes it to engage the enemy in medium range.

On 3070, you can upgrade the armor to Heavy Ferror-Aluminum Armor, and expect the better protection. Although it cannot changes the threshold so it is fine to let it be.

And, seriously, you can drop the small cockpit and restore the standard cockpit as well.

Well... isn't the landing gear usually placed on nose and fuselage? And you have three guns on nose already. If you want to put the additional guns on the wings... well, you need more tonnage as well as change the heat sink by the freezer.

 :yikes: :bang: :wheelchair:

Six tons of fuel, plus the one, as noted, to cover the small cockpit …

I'll just see myself out.
