Canon conflict:

According to Rigger 3 pg 70 semiballistics need to have a speed rating in the range of ~19992 m/turn (modified by model) = 24,000 kph / 1236 kph (speed of sound) = ~mach 19.4 = ~19.4 * 343.2 mps (speed of sound) * 3 (seconds per turn). With travel time calculations based on half that figure mach ~9.7 (9996 m/turn) = 12,000 kph (Rigger 3 pg 70) / 1,236 kph (speed of sound) = ~mach 9.7 = ~9.7 * 343.2 mps * 3, because "its flight path takes the semiballistic away from the Earth's surface."

According to Rigger 3 pg 71 Suborbital need to have a speed rating in the range of ~8330 m/turn (modified by model) = 10,000 kph / 1236 kph = ~mach 8 = ~8 * 343.2 mps * 3.

These are classified as suborbitals in this book, but in Rigger 3 they are listed as semiballistics (R3 p192):
