Price also doesn't indicate some kind of linear relationship with quality, either - sometimes older weapons are more effective precisely because you've spent years tweaking and refining their designs, and you know from long experience exactly what they can and can't do. And sometimes you just don't need all that much sophistication because there are six of you and one of him, and anything better than a pointy stick is plenty of weapon to even the odds.

For example, an old ST-02 with the legs removed and a couple of propellant tanks in their place makes a perfectly good orbital interdiction frame. Better than some, because it's so lightweight - of course it has no armor to speak of and a systems failure means you die slowly, unable to scream lest you use up your oxygen faster. But you can build four of them for the cost of a fancy orbital design that hasn't had the bugs worked out, using commonly available household parts. If your house is a space station and your garage workshop is haunted by the ghost of Sergei Korolev.

And on some colonies, working or semi-working labor frames are easier to come by and cheaper than, for example, fresh eggs or butter, because the materials and factories are right there but the nearest chicken or cow is on the other side of a transit gate. It's all relative.

That made me laugh so much. Like military brass are overly impressed by the vehicles that are most shaped like people.

Yeah, I'm kinda keen on a campaign that's two street gangs an a group of Ijad fighting over the same territory. The SU's power is there only in that they made this situation. They might even be hanging back and waiting for these guys to pound each other good so their job is easier in a few years.
