Grand Cruisers, in BFG, are Cruisers with 10HPs, usually, whilst 'Light Battleships' in my estimations would be Battleships with 10HPs. But even then I've bluffing somewhat.Also, If you mean a Battle Cruiser, wouldn't that make a "Light battleship" and a "Grand cruiser" the same thing? Also, also,(double intended) why have a "Grand Cruiser" mass class? (Unless my rule are out of date, the Tau have no "grand cruisers".)"
