Hangars vs Vanilla Cargo Bays
the advantages of a Hangar over a Plain Cargo Bay is that it is a cargo bay that sacrficed a small reduced capacity to be able to carry small crafts.
+57dtons, +27.5 tons, +$0.2M
Hangar (5x5dton) (+55 Dtons, 7.5tons) + 1 Launch Tube (+2Dtons, 20tons, +$0.2M)
Cargo usable space (if there are no crafts): 50dtons You can elect to remove the Launche Tubes but they are very useful for defense or attack (getting all the players out in 1 turn).

Passenger Jump Tenders: Instead of just providing the service to passengers some Hanger Modified Tramp Freighters can now carry small traveler's crafts.
