I don't know, admiral. Given the number of battleplates that have ended up destroyed (directly or indirectly) due to interfering in the Toughs' affairs, I'd suggest you place a higher priority on saving up for that day.

Well, he appears to have five battleplates budgeted already, four of them the experimental design I suspect counteracts long gun fire in some fashion.

To be fair to the admiral he is speaking to Captain Murtaugh. She has a solid history as a veteran mercenary, but she's not Captain Tagon, Killer of Battleplates.

That "tiny band of mercenaries" are some of the most influential men, women & other sophonts in the entire galaxy. They loosed Petey. They uncovered the DaMES. They survived the flustercluck that was Oisri; the Oafans are back. Long-guns are a thing now, ever since LOTA.

Plus they have a nasty habit of - completely by accident - destroying battleplates.

If he lives, he'll regret saying that.

Poor Murtaugh doesn't know that Eina-afa and all the stuff on it are no longer accessible to her or the Toughs and that they will have to return her ship.

Actually there's no reason it wouldn't be. Chinook has been quarantined after all. It's just that they are being held incommunicado by the UNS right now.

As for the ship maybe, but we'll have to see what negotiations Putzho and Petey have done for it.

The large number of Oafan ships still in storage, all with ready pilots, as well as Chinook's fleet being recovered, means that there is a potential new giant fleet of longgun ships to be brought into this conflict.

You know, the DaME's in the galaxy next door might not be the big trigger that destroys this galaxy / triggers an extinction wave :-).
