That's good news for Caterpillar owners, like myself. I anticipated that CIG would give us a break, by including the cargo modules. However, CIG hasn't decided yet if the "Concept Caterpillar" will come with cargo modules, or empty hull modules, like the Retaliator base model. And supposedly the price will be raised to $245 for the concept sale. That means that the early bird Caterpillars have even greater value.
Knowing that my Cat comes with cargo modules is a relief -- I was worried I would have to spend upwards of $50 more just to make the ship functional. Now I'll be more inclined to buy the more exotic modules, like Marine Transport, Marine Deployment, and Salvage/Repair (Chop Shop). I wonder if there will be a special module for carrying and deploying power armour/mech suits. I imagine mech suits could be carried in a cargo module and deployed by opening the side door. But it would be cooler if they had a special module that dropped them from a trap door (like in Edge of Tomorrow) -- it would be even cooler to see the mechs do "the superhero landing" on an Idris' hull.
