Can someone please clarify something for me regarding Cargo Holds.
There are three options listed for Cargo Holds in the Core Rulebook: The Main Cargo Hold, the Cargo Hold and Lighter Bay, and the Compartmentalised Cargo Hold.
Now, I understand that the Main Cargo Hold can only be installed in Transport class vessels. It is obviously superior for transporting cargo due to the larger bonus granted towards Trade endeavours.
The Cargo Hold and Lighter Bay and the Compartmentalisd Cargo Hold are the only option for all other classes of vessels. I wanted to clarrify the differences between these two components.
Is the basic difference between these two components the fact that one is all lumped togetehr in a single hold and poorly integrated (affects handling) while the other is broken into a series of smaller holds throughout the ship and thus better integrated into the ship's structure (no handling difference). The Compartmentalised Hold takes more Space and Power, which I assume is due to inefficiencies in storage room caused by breaking it up throughout the vessel.
Does that sound a fair assumption on the difference between them?
Also, do the other two holds (Main Cargo Hold and Compartmentalised Hold) include Lighter Bays? Battlefleet Koronus implies yes for all cargo components, but the names are highly missleading in this case. Shouldn't the "Cargo Hold and Lighter Bay" just be called "Cargo Bay".
