Unit Information Game Strategies History

The Heavy Fireship is the fourth and final upgrade of the Fire Ships unit class. It becomes available in the Enlightenment Age and is built at the Dock.

Heavy Fireships, like Fire Ships in general, are weak ships loaded with explosives, intended to detonate when they hit an enemy ship or structure. Enemy ships will usually take heavy damage or are immediately destroyed. All Fire Ships are effective against Heavy Ships and Bombardment Ships, but can be countered with Light Ships.

In the Industrial Age, Fire Ships are replaced with a new type of unit, the Submarines, thereby receiving new abilities and a slightly different role in naval combat.

Production Edit

Production cost for this unit increases progressively with every Dock unit on the field or currently in production. However, the maximum cost for Heavy Fireship is capped at 67 Timber Timber / 135 Wealth Wealth. Actual production and upgrading costs may differ, depending on researched technologies, connected rare resources, or adopted governments.
