Im getting mixed signals CIG... they call it a capital in some ATVs, they call it a corvette now.. but it has NO cap ship components.

Do i need to add it to my cap collection or not?!?!
It fits in the same space as the Polaris which only has Cap items in Radar and power plant v hammerhead w 2 large powerplant and medium radar. HH doesn't need the radar for range of firefight

I think it's a Corvette, because of the lack of capital class ship parts and less function. And that capital ships have at least some capital class ship parts and have more function.
However... if you can put capital class ship parts on a ship.. it may approach capitol class status in durability. so......
Yea... it's a damn hot mess.

If it doesnt have cap ship components then it isnt a capital. Aot of people confuse capital ships for the "Size" of the ship but there is alot more to it then that. thats like calling an oil freighter a warship.

I was thinking about the exact same analogy but realized it wasn't the best analogy so I didn't include it.
If I put deck mounted torpedo launchers, anti-air guns, landing pads, maybe 1 or two artillery cannons, and bigger engines on an oil freighter... with retractable walls that make it look like it's covered in shipping containers that retract when ready to fire...... I just created a sleeper warship.

and sometimes when oil freighter VS war ship... oil freighter wins lol

You also forget the actual construction of the ship such as grades of steel used in the framing thicknesses, armor, engine sizes and power plants, It's a bit more complicated then alot of people think. thats why when a somalian suicide squad blows into the side of a warship it doesnt just snap in half at the keel.
