So, I have a feeling that the IStdCn is going to dissapear for balance reasons. Instead, why not just give NF an improved little missile launcher. Maybe 45 or 50 damage (instead of 40) and slightly improved accuracy. The gap between BE and NF isn't really that big so it would only need to be a small improvement. Pros -improved faction balance while increasing the difference between them. Cons -could be hard to balance, StdMl is already one of the best weapons by heat and weight, improving that could allow it to replace upgraded weapons.
