Why is the Hood 6 units?

Hood under fire

Probably the First Attempt to give Hood 6 units was in 1993 and failed.  Hullbusters December 1993. Second attempt to get Hood to 6 units was in 1996 and failed.  Hullbusters October 1996.  Sometime in the early 2000s the Hood actually got bumped to 6 units in the ircwcc.
