Design Notes -Update of this van:

I've left the main weapon system, but I couldn't get the cost down to the original div30.  I looked into changing the front RLs to another AC (and add smartlinking) but that gave me too much weight, and extra space, and all the ways I'd fix that would have changed the essence of the vehicle.

Name Notes - Iapetus is a moon of Saturn.
