I reasoned this on what kind of launch bays the Defiant has:
FFG Defiant launch bays:
I looked more into it:
In the starship weapons table there are the following entries for Jovian Launch Bays:
Jovian-pattern escort bay - hull type: light cruiser, cruiser - str.1
Jovian-pattern landing bay - hull type: cruiser - str.2
Jovian Pattern Escort Bay background: designed specifically for light cruisers to fit on the hull.
Endurance space: 58, lowered with prow torpedoes: voss pattern torp tubes = space 5, thus total space clean = 58+5 = 63
Defiant space:55, lowered with Jovian Bays: escort bays = space 4. 4+4 =8
55+8 = 63 Ding.
With the bigger landing bay it would come on 55+12 = 67 space
With all this we can assume that in Battlefleet Koronus the Defiant comes with the Jovian Escort bay.
These are str1 per side, for a total of 2.
And thus half strength of the bigger bay on Mars & Dictator. Thus FFG says the same as BFG always did:
Would that be correct in yours opinions?
