As would tinted glass.

Well, the WoC gives us the AC for it, and even the costs, I believe. I don't
see how it would be harder to spot. The Helmsman will find it thru the helm,
if it's over 10 tons, and , if continual light is used, as you suggest, it
becomes quite easy to spot.

Also in the WoC (War Captain's Chest)

Actually, I've had good luck with a Glassteeled Viper. Sharpen the wings for
Razors like the Scro Mantis, add a rear ram, and go to towm.
