slowly huge ship, with alot of cargo (and units, /crews) space,
and almost unlimited, all-planet (whole-planet) range -

That's literally "Leviatan", "Conqueror", or "Thunderhorse". Play the damn game/mod before making any suggestions.

I have done the underwater oddity mission two times now, but i have a question that i will try to ask without spoiling anything. The first time, i happened upon the 'goodies' by accident because there was no visual indicator of the stuff, though the location hinted very subtly at something being there. The place i'm talking about is where three of the enemies spawn close to each other, but i'm not sure whether or not there are more places to check out for goodies. Given the intricate nature of the mission, exploring every inch is quite risky, so am i missing out?

These come pretty late in the game. I think Lyta meas the literal air truck you can shoot down in the game (K9-truck or something like that, has a crew of three labourers, carries chemicals and consumer goods). It could serve as a slower, more spacious space incapable alternative to the Pachyderm, but IDK if it’s necessary.

I never have any idea what LytaRyta means. I stopped caring long ago.

Then Convoy is all you need. It's slow, but very spacious and early in the game. Only few missions dissapear even when targetted by your ship, so It's usually not a problem when you have two teams. One for small, but fast respond to easy missions and one big and slow for huge missions.

Besides, all Hellerium powered crafts are in midgame, or early only if you rush them in research, not even talking about " powered by *hEllerium (energy capsules, /energy bateries-packs)" which is pretty lategame.

Triton is good if you are RNG lucky to get Reticulians early for big amount of soldiers and two vehicles. If everything fails: Zeppelin/blimp/airship.

I really like the Harquebus introduced in 0.99J9 (a downgraded version of the musket!) but the sprite needs some more consistent gunbutt, i think. Slso, why it's mounting a bayonet on it? These did not mount any blades. i hope it would be temoved from futher versions, so that bayoneted muskets may make more sense

I was just browsing the internet - usuall, but something caught my eye.
Naked gals on the battlefield make more sense/it's more "realistic"/it's more "belivelable" now.
Term: "General Butt Naked"
Sounds silly, but it's not.

It won't.

Got it...but at least may the RCF carabine get a gunbutt attack option, like the ol' carabine?   :)

Isn't RCF carabine too fragile to be used like that? It's not chunk of wood, it's carabine: Mix between SMG and Rifle.
I know that RCF is a good weapon, in all my runs I did in Piratez, there was always a stage when RCF carabine was a standard issue weapon for all gals that just went out of "Shotgun Training" reaching about 80 accuracy.
Since gals can punch with their fists, it's not that necessary. Put a handle into QD slot. It only costs 2 to move it to the hand and it also costs 2 to  drop it on the ground. 4 Time Units are not that much when gals after few missions and kill have 100+ TU's.

It is too fragile, the stock is for aiming only.

I just tried the City Raid mission, and i put some of my gals in thief gear, but the others became 'boxed'. Do i need to break them free with a pickaxe or something?
