Objecttypes.tbl is a table added by the FSSCP, used to set attributes of different object types. Currently the only section of this table are ship type attributes. A ship 'type' supercedes ship classes defined in ships.tbl. For example, the GTF Perseus and GTF Ulysses belong to the 'fighter' ship type. However, the GTD Orion belongs to the 'capital' ship type.
