Low for a 200m frigate is 0. Low for 500 is 2 squadrons.

Based on these, a 300m frigate would carry roughly 8 fighters and 400m would carry about 16 at low.

Simple ratios to solve the problem (or in this case you have a 5-2=3 so 24 fighters/3 is 8 fighters per 100m increase).

So, if the Factory were to implement another line to the Frigate template - I think it'd make the most sense to be the middle ground between what we've got already. To visualize what I'm talking about, I've included a segment beneath this blurb.

200m [Base: 0 | Very Low: 0 | Low: 0 | Average: 1 | High: 2 | Very High: 3 | Extreme: 4 ]

350m [Base: 0 | Very Low: 0 | Low: 1 | Average: 2 | High: 3 | Very High: 4 | Extreme: 5 ]

500m [Base: 0 | Very Low: 1 | Low: 2 | Average: 3 | High: 4 | Very High: 5 | Extreme: 6 ]

As mentioned in the template, these squadron counts are based on the standard number that's found within a starfighter squadron - so twelve ships per squadron. Which then gets even more interesting if our fanon ships have less starfighters, or etc - due to their smaller squadron sizes. But, that shouldn't matter as one unit of them takes up that squadron slot all the same. However, like I said - I'm okay with the way things are currently, as if someone had loads of starfighters on smaller ships... then what's the point of having carriers? lol

A middle ground is probably best, because there's already a formula in place for how many squadrons a ship gets per X meters.

Edit: It goes by 100 meters, as you can see in the Corvette section, the 50-99 meter range is given a 0 squadrons for all ratings just to make it clear that corvettes under 100 meters cannot carry squadrons of starfighters. The reason there's only 2 ratings in the frigate section is honestly because we came up with the hangar ratings in a vacuum and it looked like a lot of information so some things which may have been necessary (i.e; 250 or 300 meter distinction for hangar ratings) were overlooked because we cut things until the amount of information we were looking at was something people weren't screaming at me for.
