Was this published directly from ILM/LF or from a secondary source? I recall LF at least pooh-poohed this idea when they created a little something for Vader in the very next film. Since this was published at a time when even the first Han Solo Trilogy was far from being made and the only EU on the market were the comic adaptations of the first film along with the novelization, it's not strange that they would write that profile. This was also the same series of publication that hinted that the Star Destroyers in the film itself were the "big, Corellian ships", which obviously the EU didn't follow up on. Or that the corvette was an obsolete, fuel-burning vessel. Uhm, I seem to recall the EU didn't follow up on that cryptic statement, either. One could even make the argument that the people who wrote Han Solo & Corporate Sector Handbook almost went against the current by giving the Invincible-class a larger size. Not to mention the Pelagia Star and the Rokak'k Baran, two ship designs that not only broke the size rule, but at least one of which broke this "can't be outgunned rule" also. Bottom line, I think my position is still preserved and well-justified.
