I am, unsurprisingly, unconvinced.

Why should there be a grappler on ABC's (Arkonor, Bistot, Crokite)?

(Sorry, just couldn't resist).

This idea doesn't feel very fleshed out What?

Also, most ABCs snipe, so it wouldn't be all that hot anyway.

How about assault frigs getting a role bonus so they can use grapplers. Much more interesting...

If you say so, though they'd also need like -99% pg as well

ABC's are deliberately weak to smaller ships. Allowing Grapplers would be taking away from that. Why should that element be changed.

Naga can be set up in a similar way but then everything just becomes a cookie cutter fit of everything else.
