The second-to-last Heavy Ship available to the player, it is one of the most devastating, and it is one of the most powerful naval units available.
Ramping cost for the Battleship, like for most combat units, increase progressively, depending on the number of combat units from the same production facility (in this case, heavy and light warships and submarines). Maximum total unit cost it is capped at 315 Metal and 202 Oil.
Unit model Edit
The Battleship's model seems to be based on either the Yamato or the Musashi, two battleships of the Imperial Japanese Navy operated during World War II. They were the largest and most powerful battleships ever built, but were both sunk during the conflict.
