There are five classes of warships in the game:

   Corvettes
   Corsair
   Frigate
   Destroyers
   Cruisers

Each class of ship has unique capabilities. All warships receive 2x armor and 2x hull over economy ships.

Corvette:

   Has a 50% chance to deal 2x the amount of damage with railguns

Corsair:

   Can move through locked portals
   Receives a bonus when boarding other ships

Frigate:

   Has a 25% chance to deal 2x the amount of damage with turrets

Destroyer:

   Can install Missile Bays
   Can hold more scanners than any other class of ship
   Cannot hold rail guns

Cruisers:

   Can hold more railguns than any other class of ship
   Have triple the armor of normal ships

Crippling Ship:

After destroying a ships shields and armor, a player may cripple another ship by destroying its engines. The only way for a ship to move after being crippled, is to be towed.

There are currently three types of weapons in the game:

   Turrets
   Rail Guns
   Missile Bays

Turret:

   Specializes in destroying the armor and hull of a ship

Rail Gun:

   Deals an equal amount of damage to all sections of a ship with a 25% chance of dealing 2x the amount of damage

Missile Bay:

   Specializes in destroying shields
   How many missiles your ship can carry depends on it's size. Ship size / 50. The biggest Destroyer can carry 800 missiles.

Engine Evasion:

Engines are provided with an offset factor to simulate a ships evasion. The factor makes Engine's one of the most difficult parts of a ship to destroy.

The evasion for defending ships is calculated in the following manner: ((Weapon Damage * Weapon Quantity) * (Random number between 70 and 90) / 100) - Size factor.

If the attacking ship is larger than the defending ship, the amount and level of engines will offset the size factor in the following way:

Size difference = Attacker size - defender size.

   Engine I X 1: (Size difference / 500) - ((Size difference / 500) * .87)
   Engine I X 2: (Size difference / 500) - ((Size difference / 500) * .88)
   Engine I X 3: (Size difference / 500) - ((Size difference / 500) * .89)
   Engine II X 1: (Size difference / 500) - ((Size difference / 500) * .90)
   Engine II X 2: (Size difference / 500) - ((Size difference / 500) * .91)
   Engine II X 3: (Size difference / 500) - ((Size difference / 500) * .92)
   Engine III X 1: (Size difference / 500) - ((Size difference / 500) * .93)
   Engine III X 2: (Size difference / 500) - ((Size difference / 500) * .94)
   Engine III X 3: (Size difference / 500) - ((Size difference / 500) * .95)

Note: The Destroyer class receives a bonus when attacking smaller ships. Subtract 4 from any of the above results to find the Destroyer bonus. Weapon Stats
