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.

Cargo Space: 69.7 tons Cost: MCr 471.5 (377.2)
Atmospheric Speeds NoE= 75kph

My good Trader Jim, for some reason I picture you're fleet of Broadsword class ships all being painted up like various balls from that wonderful Solomani game known as "Billards". I just don't know which ball/ship would be the leader in your formation, a large all white one called "The Cue Ball" or a large all black one known as "The Eight Ball".

Good bit of humor, Majesty!

Maybe TJ will have eight ball or full rack squadrons?

Hey that's something to put into the VBB write up!

We thank you for the humorous input and idea, Your Imperial Majesty!

I've been contemplating the KR for awhile, but to really do it justice would require the use of some custom components (Pool, gym, theaters, promenade, garden, luxury staterooms, etc) or borrow from GT, which have these items defined.

PS
As I said in the original posting, I have stats for almost a dozen variants that I hope could be submitted as a CotI article.
