Oops! Tom, you are right, of course. I was forgetting that the 15CPs for
Size 3 vehicle is its _internal_ capacity. Yes, it requires 24 CPs for a
Size 3 vehicle to be transported inside another vehicle. Thus 1 CS = 2
as you rightly suggest. Thank you for spotting my mistake and apologies
all for any confusion.

Oh and this applies to both DS2 and SG2 as the vehicle design system is
essentially the same in each case.
