Fed ships with a Plasma Torpedo bigger than F whatsoever in FC. If not, will there ever be, and are there any in SFB?

I assumed as much, as the Feds aren't big Plasma users, but just wanted to check.

After all, the F does stand for Federation.

My understanding was that it originally stood for "fighter", but the "stands for" names haven't been relevant in a long, long time. It's just a type-F nowadays.

I always thought that "F" stood for FIXED. That refering to the stasis box the original Light Raider/Drug Runner used.

No, actually IIRC - "F" does stand for fixed.
Each of the Torpedo types originally designated a specific term:
R was for "R"omulan
G was for "G"orn
S was for "S"uperior, or improved
F was for "F"ixed
D was for "D"rone, since it was launched from a canister similar to a drone.

Tony, who still remembers why PFs were called PF to start with.

I thought "S" originally stood for "Swivel"-mount (improving the launch-arc over the earlier "G" type).

Frankly, none of them stand for anything anymore. A plasma-F is just a plasma-F.

USS E-
In my 20+ years of collecting SFU materials, I've never seen one mention of it meaning "fleet". Please direct us to where you are referencing that from.

The Federation Commander Romulan Border Rulebook. No chapter and verse at the moment, its either in the index or the Plasma Torps section.

I always thought that PF stood for Pseudo-fighter.

Patrol, Fast.

Original usage was Psuedo-Figher, later that was revised to Patrol Ship, Fast...

That dosn't match the text in my rulebook at all...
Please provide Rulebook revision number (located on front cover) and rule section number.
