A mass 100 SV ship with two "pre-loaded" wombs would be mass 112 until
drones were launched, and have consummately higher movement cost, IMO.
Normally fighter launches don't affect thrust levels of carriers. Even
though I think they should in general (I.e. a carrier with all fighter
groups launched is carrying less mass, therefore the engines may beable
supply more thrust), they _certainly_ should in the case of "overloaded"
Cost per extra group would have to be higher than 5 or 6 per fighter,
because tha game advantage of being able to launch and extra flight of
drones and use the energy for other purposes (manuever, weapons,
worth a significant sum for the SV. How much I'm still not sure, but
pts per group seems way low. Perhaps consider them as "loose" groups
FTL packs. Cost would be 18 plus minimum required to get a single
group FTL'ed into a combat = 30 more points.
