One of the things about Fog ships is there's more to them than just '25th century weapons on disguised 20th century chassis'. Their weapons and armor are far closer to what's generally available in the 25th century, certainly, but the ratio of offensive firepower to tonnage is insane, even by 25th century standards. Every one of them more closely resembles Daggerdisc than a modern ship of the line. And their ability to reconfigure, repair, and any other nanotech advantage is a step above that. Put simply, if Ikazuchi-chan were to don a chassis the size of an Ikazuchi-class vessel (I believe it's a carrier, primarily), what kind of weaponry would we then see?
