Default AHL deckplans officially retconned?

In the discussion forums over on the Mongoose boards it has come to light that the changes to the deckplans for the AHL were deliberate and discussed with 'people'.

Is this an official retcon?

Is the game AHL now officially decanonised since the deckplans are no longer correct for the ship class?

I don't recall that thread, though I haven't compared the two sets either.

Could have been a subclass, or extensive refurbishment, which could keep both canon.

If I'm remembering correctly, didn't the class receive a refit at one point?

The old deck plans area multi deck tail sitting 'hotel floor' arrangement.

The new version has three decks and looks like a big Kinunir - that's not a refit...

I've dug out Supplement Three, Fighting Ships.

While I can't comment on individual details, it still seems the same high rise configuration.

The shape is right, the deck plans are wrong.

Unless this was adjusted by a later edition or another publication, the entry clearly shows eighty four decks.

Where have those plans appeared?

I hope they are not official retcon, a I like AHL game with all its deck plans...

Too many adventures are based on them to allow for that

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.

GDW published a version of the AHL. Mongoose have published a version of the AHL.

By the power invested in me by myself I hereby officially and with all due ceremony entitle and empower you, in perpetuity, with full authority to take your pick.

They are in the new MgT High Guard second edition.

A couple of people on the Mongoose forums commented on them and the reply was that it is an official change and that they were always meant to be like that according to 'discussions'.
