Default Ship Designations for STL ships?

I am curious; cause in the OTU -- a non-jump capable warship is usually called an SDB -- which is usually very tough/armored and capable in a fight -- most are 400 dTons -- but 5000 dTon SDB's have been built --

so --

What do I do for MTU which is non jump-capable -- THUS, every warship is an SDB? Since at this point -- it's large #'s of missiles & N-PAW's with sandcasters for defense (there are a few who use Lasers/Plasma to augment thier N-Paws)

or would I use the standard, FF, DD, DE, CL, Cru, HCru, BC, BB series for warships?

and --

since in MTU -- it's "low" teach level -- thus, smaller ships are built -- so a 5000 dTon ship is pretty much a monster..since I am dealing with planetary economics -- instead of an imperium -- so cost of a ship is just as important -- so would a world build a large series of Patrol frigates (PF's), or several CL's or 1 BC?
