Just picked up this game and have not yet played it through, but I can already hear an argument in the making.

The ISN Everest SR2 Pulse Triple Guns list the following note:
"* You can only attack small ships with the SR2 Pulse Triple Guns"

Does that mean;
1. The SR2 Pulse Triple Guns cannot be used to attack large ships.
2. The ISN Everest can ONLY attack small ships with SR2 Pulse Triple Guns (ie cannot use the Primary Weapon vs small ships).

I think both can be argued for thematically, since small ships may simply be too small and fast to effectively hit with the primary weapon, or the Pulse Triple Guns may be too weak to affect a larger ships hull or shields.

AFAIK 1. is correct. You cannot use SR2 Pulse Triple Guns to attack medium and large ships.

Agreed. (2) would seriously help the already powerful Wretch.

Not really sure on the confusion here, as it seems rather straight forward. 1) Yeah, you cannot attack medium or large ships with them, because it says "only small ships". 2) No such restriction exists on the primary weapon, just like no restriction exists on any primary weapon of any ship. The primary weapon can indeed shoot small, medium, or large ships.
