The issue with too many of this unit or that unit really isnt about upkeep costs. If someone were to sit down and actually calculate the cost of say all their defensive units if bought at once, then compared it to their monthly defensive maintainance cost it would be around 5 to 10% I guesstimate. That really isnt too bad at all.
The issue is that there are so few units actually worth having, 15 total (including support units)for all types to be exact. With so few valueable units your going to get tons of each.
The only weapons you really need are.
Ints, Dheli, AAMB, MIB, SRMB, NMB, NMIB, and RP
Land Units = ineffective, inefficient, waste of space
NFP, RDU, Seals, LRRP, AC, and Supply Ships
Navy = unlimited range, better abilility than land variants
Most effective and efficient missile batt
Anything else is redundant, even the RDU arent neccessary. It might be cheaper, but other units arent as versatile and its harder to supply more weapon types with ammo. Only time other units would be usefull is to ammo drain or act as shields.
For those of you that will say where are the OAMMB and MRMB they arent neccessary. Though we all do carry 20K or so of each just to have. =)
