After having fun with AMV's HGS program, I want to ask something that used to bug me in my active-playing years.

While I understand that most of the ships in Supplement 9, and in other places, don't actually add up, I have never understood why they intentionally broke the rules on two "main" ships.

The most common, of course, is the X-boat. I know why they did it, but it would have been nice for it to be explicitly mentioned as a one-time exception. Also, while it was necessary for Book 2, it would have been nice if they would have "corrected" the ship for Book 5 and Supp 9.

The most annoying is the Gazelle. Why does a 300 ton ship have 4 hardpoints? They can put 4 hardpoints on the Fiery if they want, but the Gazelle should only have 3!

Sorry for the gripe, but those two have always annoyed me.
