2) You're absolutely right about the highlighted portion. That role however, does not equate to a justification for using an incredibly outdated design when modern, superior, designs exist.
Yet we have the Fleet Excel, the Fleet Galaxy, the Fleet Cheyenne, the Fleet D7, the Fleet B'rel, the Kumari...
