"In some models, hangar bays were positioned in the middle of the ship, where several starfighters were stored.[5] These ships were also heavily shielded and could withstand significant firepower until destruction."

" A system of docking rings lined the sides of each ship."


If we are to take the definition of "several" literally it would be 7 fighters.

But yeah, because Vulture droids can latch on to objects in zero gravity they can latch on to the hull.
also that might be a good number. That's 16 squads per, I double checked by checking the Invisible hand a Modified Providence class which was roughly the same size as the stock Recusant. It was slightly smaller but it was also said to have made more room for more fighters. They both have the same number of fighters but the Invisible hand has way more land vehicles so I think its appropriate.

I do Assume by its size that you did classify it as a Heavy Cruiser, since it very much fits that size catagory and how it preformed fits the same.

Though I think its closer to 1/4th smaller so I would just give it 180 or a nice 15 squads, I find it a bit more a round number that way. (also makes it easier on those poor people like myself who have to do calculations on it.

Me? Loop holes? I can assure you that my actions are very much above the board.

Vultures don't need docking rings or hangars, so I expect those were for other starships.

And given that the Recuscant can hold 270, I expect it can fit quite a few in those recesses. Though I haven't actually seen it in action, accept this one instance in which a bunch of Vulture-droids flew off the umbrella hull part.

Interesting. And yes I classed it as a heavy cruiser.
