Is it possible for the transport ship to have somewhere either in Description or in ANAL information what mission types are they capable? Like can it into space, can it do mansion, can it do infiltration, can it go underwater. Yes I know some key ships have this information, but some don't. Or maybe in mission screen do a button similar to: "What to wear?", called Available Rides. Yes I know it is somewhere in ufopaedia, but really it would be much better to have this in-game without the need of either memorizing or having 100 charts written down.

But who will presume some type of a mission before it is invented? Who will know that you are going to dive into a real ocean, who will tell you that you'll gonna reach the space? So I vote for not to describe it in the main screen.

I think the current option is somewhat fair - if you try to send a wrong ship you get info on which of your researched craft can do it. Sure, it makes you skip that particular mission, as you most likely don't have that particular craft available, but you can be prepared next time that mission spawns. Plus you get to know some hidden fact about ships - I did not know that Prospector can dive before that popup told me.

On that note - could some form of space suit (0-G) with a bit better protection be possible? Something between 20 armor of regular space suit and power armored harbinger? Slapping some plasteel and superconductive circuits on a space suit can't be that hard. ;) I know superhero armor exists, but it's as deep in the tech tree as harbinger, so not that useful.

Space based enemies, aside from killer droids, are low tier grunts. Not allowing better armours makes these missions a bit more fair.

Free research and the associated (rather small) infamy boost from it.

If you are playing "honor/supermutant" you can roll a bad mission that will kill all of your gals. In that case Airbus don't return to your base and without expedition and early in tech it would be gameover without a "transport craft". Expeditions can also take mission underwater so it's a good thing to use it before being able to afford Aircar and some weapon to shoot down civilian traffic.

At this stage of this mod, I think all of this is known.

Partially true, but at the higher diffiulty levels use of expeditions means you have insufficient funds to buy an aircraft. Pretty much game over. Tried this option only once in the early attempts with Hard/SM.
No real efficiency. Boost economics instead. Fast, really fast. The initial aitcrafts are pretty cheap.
AND they have doors)

Divulges meta-knowledge (immersion break), there is no space for such description, new mission types would break it, etc, etc. Also would have to be done by hand, so gl finding willing slaves.
