What you are missing, and assuming, is that the costs in resources for Fleet Projects will not increase. It sounds and looks good on paper, but you are following the a false assumption, we know resource costs will escalate. At tier 3 you are up to 60 doffs in some cases. So while it looks good on paper, even if resource costs remained the same, your momentum will drop precipitously. An 84% loss in resources at each step already buffer it.
