Unit Information Game Strategies History

Light Ships are a unit series produced at the Dock, Anchorage, and Shipyard. They are quick ships with light armament and armor, all of which feature a ranged attack.

Light Ships are strong against enemy Fire Ships, Submarines, and Aircraft. Because of this, they make a good escort for the Heavy Ships unit series, which are weak to these units. Light Ships are also very effective at harassing enemy transports.

Light Ships are weak to enemy Heavy Ships.
