I don't have a problem with that specifically. But it would be nice if we had a choice in cockpit glass panelling. For example, you would be able to choose which panels of the canopy are glass and which are steel. That way, you could make a tank with only a forward facing slit (You orient yourself by the radar in combat, anyway, or a full-glass canopy for an explorer. That would be awesome.Questionable design decision, or brilliant aesthetic compromise? You decide!
Really though, I don't have a problem with the Krait having a giant, easily hit, canopy, but why does every ship in the game have the same 30 canopy integrity?
