A cargo bay is a part which can contain other equipment.

The main usage is to store unwieldy or unstackable parts (such as a small probe) within a larger structure. It doesn't shields the parts from aerodynamic drag (0.25[outdated]) currently. The size of cargo bay cannot be used completely - the docking devices needs some place, and the room of the cargo bays has no regular shape.
