Just doing the maths for FFS Hull Volume (I was trying to accurately interpolate between two Hull Sizes) and I noticed that the MV values on the Hull Size table (p11) don't actually work out for the area of a sphere and the Chassis Size MV (p17) don't work out for a 1.67 x 1 x 2.5 ratio cuboid. Or I should say don't appear to work. Or else my maths is crap; a distinct possibility.

Yes I realise that the volume of a 1cm thick skin on a sphere is actually equal to the Volume of sphere of radius r - the volume of a sphere of radius r - 1, if r is in cm. Of course using this formula means that smaller vehicles' armour increases in weight quicker than big vehicles' and doubling the AV doesn't quite double the volume of armour.
