The Iceni, unlike a destroy, goes at 35m/s, only matched by a Mentu class, so it was obviously built to run.
I wouldn't know... I made a private little FS2 mod to make the game more interesting. Among other things, the speeds for everything bigger than a bomber have changed. Freighters and transports have a top speed of around 50 m/s, cruisers around 30-40 (except heavy cruisers, which are 10, since they are much heavier but have the same engine), corvettes around 20, destroyers around 10, and supercaps around 20 (because the supercaps have those HUGE
These mods are pretty damn cool, though it might screw with some missions that make assumptions about relative ship speeds. (Why can't everyone just use cap-waypoint-speed?)
