How are frame companies taken into account when calculating total systems for your PPA? Now that they're proper tactical assets I would assume each company system counts like a ship system would, so each company defaults to four. Assuming that's right, is it possible to start a game with reduced systems on a frame company? Leave off the spot or defense for example to try and bid under your opponents.
e: for another question. Do you have
to bring one frame company for each catapult in your fleet? I'm thinking of a force with two (
) carrier frigates and a fighting frigate, but only one company on each carrier.
