Name:  Bay, Battle Armor
Type (Category):  Equipment (Other)
Reference:  TechManual (p. 239)

Description:
Infantry compartments are not bays per se, but cargo space for personnel, with maybe a flat shelf for a community seat and hooks in the wall for gear. Used mainly by vehicular units rather than in spacecraft, compartments can transport infantry and their equipment over short distances but lack any amenities beyond the space needed to breathe.

Infantry bays, on the other hand, include basic life support (air filters and conditioning that draw from the vehicle’s external environment or an internal ship-wide life support apparatus), basic sleeping arrangements (such as bunks, cots or simple pads), a communal waste facility, and even food and equipment stowage compartments that allow for a bit more comfort and longer hauls. Infantry bays can even provide proper anchorage for the infantry unit’s gear, based on its type.

The tonnage that vehicles and DropShips must devote to these compartments or bays varies with the type and quantity of infantry being transported

Game Rules:
If a critical slot containing cargo is hit, all cargo in that location is destroyed.
