To prevent the CMC having an all out perfect starship, every ship must follow several rules:
CMC ships have a number of possible abilities:
- Hangars (Fighter/bomber deployment)
- Point Defense
- Planetary Landing/ ground support
A CMC vessel must not excel in more than six of these.
A CMC vessel must also conform to its class designation. (A Destroyer cannot act as a Carrier, or a Frigate act as Dreadnought)
A Destroyer class is 2.5 times more expensive than a Frigate Class of the same size. If the Destroyer is larger, the costs must be scaled up by the same factor as size.
