I am really fond of carriers. I love my Atrox. I think more carriers and flight deck ships are good in this game.

Ships with a hangar bay or two are usually balanced somehow against other ships - they have less turn rate, or fewer weapon slots, or something like that. My beloved Atrox has 6 weapon slotes, where other ships of her size have 8.

Buit the Armitage is basically a C-store escort with a special console and a hangar bay on top of that... unless I did miss something, it looks like the addition of the hangar bay did not cost anything else in the design. So I am curious: What was the reasoning behind this?

I'd really love to know. Thanks!
