There are 3 different types of Cargo Bays in the Core Book. Main Cargo Hold, Cargo Hold & Lighter Bay, and Compartmentalized Cargo Hold.
Now, other than the obvious Achievement Point Bonuses they get, my question is what is the Role Play or out of game mechanics that makes these different. Specifically, can I launch Guncutters and Aquila Landers from my Main Cargo Hold and Comp-Hold like I can from the Lighter Bay and can the Lighter Bay launch Aquilas and Guncutters faster than a Main Cargo Hold? Is there something special about a Lighter Bay that makes it better for launching Space Craft? Furthermore, as a side note, what would be the average “Air Force” a Rogue Trader would have, hundreds or just a few of each of the main types of “Shuttles” that are in the books, ie: Aquila Landers, Guncutters, Halo Barges, Arvus Lighters… Not worried about fighters as those are normally on Carriers and Ships with the Launch Bay Component.
Thanks, Cpt H.
