The Internal Compartments can fit a multitude of different equipment types, some mandatory and some optional. The amount and size of Internal Compartments varies per ship. Some compartments are restricted to only specific equipment, while others permit any equipment type.
Internal Compartments are accessed via the Outfitting menu of Starport Services. They are divided into 2 categories: Core Internal and Optional Internal.
These are the ship's main internal modules. There are 2 types: Core Compartments and Military Compartments.
