Default Dystopian Wars Lists for 2nd Edition

Hey,

Spartangames forums don't have much in the way of lists at the moment, so thought i'd post my thoughts for my Republique of France faction. I am a noob to the game, but starting to pick it up better with each new game. I would like some feedback if possible so I can think about my next purchases:

1000pts

Large:
- Saint Malo: w/Elite Crew: 230pts

- Couronne Aircraft Carrier w/Cloud Gen: 165pts

Mediums:

- Toulon x3: 255pts

- Cherbourg x1: 110pts

- Cherbourg x1: 110pts

Smalls:

- Lyon x4: 100pts

:970pts


This is quite a heat lance heavy list: Toulon's, Cherbourgs (x3 heat lances/lancettes per vessel! But a glass cannon...) and one on the Couronne. The Saint Malo has more strength in range band 4 with Rockets and automatically receives 6 submarines. The Lyons make up the compulsory small vessels. 16 tiny flier tokens.

The past few games I have been experimenting with lots of Aerial units supporting my Naval core. So have taken a Toribillion Sky Fortress and Couronne together for 22 tiny flier tokens, and made most dive bombers, one spotter and maybe a fighter squadron to screen. However, this sometimes seems like overkill (never got to attack with all of them in my last game), especially with a Frelon (medium Bonber) squadron of 5 (that don't seem to do much) and x2 Voltaires, which have been quite killy but are quite pricey at 65pts a pop...
My Marseilles destroyers haven't impressed me at all: They never make there points back, so this is why I have been thinking about subbing for heat lance medium vessels like the Cherbourg.

I would kind of like a mix of heat lance naval vessels supported by Voltaires and a decent number of tiny flier tokens. Viable?
