Ship Types and Number of Systems

I'm reading the latest version of the rules while assembling some ships and was wondering something.

On page 20 it notes that capital ships have four systems, and on page 22 it notes that frigates have three systems.

Is that a mandatory number, or are ships allowed to carry a number of systems up to those limits? I'm assuming ships must carry their required number of systems since "up to" is not mentioned anywhere in that description, but I just wanted to be sure.

Cheers

I'm 99.9% sure that you can have less systems just like in RA. That way you can underbid your opponents if you want to.

Not necessarily. If the number of systems per ship is set (capital ships at four and frigates at three), then the way to underbid you opponents would be to field more frigates.

Don't forget, Frame Squadrons are a TA that count as having 0 (yes zero!) systems for PPA calculations.
