Why does the Locust UAV weigh more than the Hornet UAV when equipping?

While the Locust UAV does have a lower base weight than the Hornet UAV (the Locust is 547 Tons while the Hornet is 563 Tons), in most cases it will weigh more than the Hornet when being equipped to a hull.  This is because the Hornet UAV is a Forsaken Tech weapon, and as such benefits from a 15% weight reduction if your Shipyard is level 2 (this will put the Hornet at 478 Tons).  The Locust, on the other hand, is Reaver Tech, and as such does not benefit from any weight reduction.
