Class Fitting Restrictions

Ship class and module class is closely related. The table below shows the relationships between individual modules and relative ship class. Mandatory Modules must have at least one module of that type fitted to the ship. Module Class Allowed is the module class compared to the ship class. For certain modules like the Computer, the Ship Class must be equal the Module Class. For Generator and Capacitor modules, ±1 Ship Class means the module can be fitted on a ship class above or below the module class to be functional or fit with available cargo room.
