But seriously, if you think about it, if you ended up spending who knows how much on ships from a C-store wouldn't you be mad if they were suddenly made completely useless to endgame content because we have a new rank. It's one thing to toss aside a ship you get for free while heading towards VA, it's another thing entirely to discharge the ship you paid real world currency on.
to your first para, I agree partially. I would say that Admiral should allow us to use newer, better ships with more than 5 Boffs and all the bells + whistles, while Fleet Admiral would allow us to own and command multiple VA + Adm ships.

To your second para. I covered that part already. Possibly the current VA C-store ships would make a good addition to a FA's fleet. Or, as said previously, the C-store ships could receive an upgrade, both performance and physical-wise. That way they could possibly keep up with the Adm ships.
