I have a technical question. The cost of Orbital Manufacturing Facilities (Advanced) is MCr0.4 per ton (HG2023 p. 68). To produce 1 ton per day, 25 tons are needed. So, the cost of a factory producing, for example, 1 ton of Advanced Vehicles per day is MCr10. The price of 1 ton of Advanced Vehicles is MCr0.18 (CoreBook22 p. 244). So, the cost of the factory is recouped in 55 days. Let's calculate licenses, employee salaries, let it be 90 days. Can a business really be profitable within 90 days? Additionally, the factory can be set up on a planet, which would be cheaper.
