Woolie Wool:
The interbellum wasn't really that long. The United States is still fielding plenty of weapons dating from 1976.

Titan:
Think about it: all the different ships in FS1 served different purposes. No ships truly replaced one another. In that time, 4 different weapons became available for the exact same purpose.

Mobius:

Alright for the Perseus but what about the Harpoon and the Trebuchet? They're issues to the player later in campaign, it doesn't mean these weapons were brand new ones.

Titan:
I think the harpoon is a fairly standard weapon by the time the NTF war begins. Trebuchet, on the other hand, was probably emergency-deployed to capella.

Well, being confronted by a technologically superior enemy with nearly invincible fighters tends to spur weapon developments a bit more than shooting pirates and secessionists, don't you think?
