Sounds pretty dumb. They can field massive fleets of FTL warships and build floating cities, but can't afford the most basic shit like ammunition? Which means they have to adopt some kind of medieval military doctrine for the front lines.
Russia today can barely afford one put-put diesel carrier but still manages to export a small arms cornucopia.
If you'd check out some of their adversaries you'd understand why their supply lines are tattered messes.
They have to fight space orcs, space ants/roaches, space rebels and all this under the insane dictatorship of some lich dictator with a brain in a jar. XD
That is, they can afford it, they just can't supply it to the front lines fast enough. And (I think) they consider human lives cheaper than ammunition XD
