If you don't know by now, the mercenary cruiser described in THB is not the Broadsword. This was confirmed by Hunter when I had questions on the design. So I took the initiative to flesh out the T20 specs for the Broadsword.

For the most part it has the same stats as THB. I have increase the power plant for the lasers, add fuel scoops, and included the airraft, cutter, and module bays.
