Default Jump capable ships under 100 tons

I'm considering allowing ships under 100 tons in my pending pocket empires campaign to use jump drives, something I allowed in the mid 80's. The only design restriction is that a functional can't be smaller than 2 tons. Otherwise, the drive and ship conform to normal HG formula.

What would be the effect if this change was available when jump drives first become available? Express boats would certainly be smaller. There would be some fringe 50 ton free traders. Heavy fighters could be FTL capable.

It is worth pointing out that, given the 2 ton minimum, a ship of sufficient TL is operating at a lower jump than possible, due to restricted fuel and a small computer.
A generous and sadistic GM,
Brandon Cope
