I always thought it was bc and lc. Role of ship before weight class.
I would love to rename the ships and set classs. Like battleship class for the battle ship and dreadnought. Cruiser class for all the crusers. Frigate class for scouts interseptor destroyer and escorts
As far as I’m aware the designation for the Light Cruiser (in our community) has been CL since the beginning, which I assumed stood for “Cruiser, Light”, and makes sense for the updated CB designation for Raven (CB-014) as “Cruiser, Battle” (Battlecruiser) and CM for the new Hydra (CM-008) “Cruiser, Missile”.
And I agree Matsiyan. I like the layout of the crew assignment document, but it’s definitely not a “quick quick reference”. 😛
