Ships are required to transport resources and are the basic unit of attack in Stardrift Empires. They require a Shipyard for building.

Ship Descriptions

Utility Ships

Carmanor Cargo: The Carmanor is the largest freight ship in the Universe.

Attack Ships
Apollo fighter.png
Apollo Fighter: An upgrade of the Artemis Fighter that uses a Pulse Drive in place of a Jet Drive allowing for greater firepower and defenses.
Ares bomber.png
Ares Bomber: A specialized ship used to demolish enemy planetary defenses. However, this ship is quite weak in ship versus ship combat, due its lack of Rapid Fire against ships.
Artemis fighter.png
Artemis Fighter: A basic assault unit. It is cheap, light, and dependable, and is the first attack ship that most commanders will build.
Athena battleship.png
Athena Battleship: Many commanders utilize the Athena Battleship as the principal ship for their fleets. Excellent defenses, strong weapons, and fast cruising speed make it a difficult ship to fight against.
Hades battleship.png
Hades Battleship: With high speed, large cargo, heavy hull, and rapid fire versus many ships, the Hades Battleship is the optimal choice for heavy fleet versus fleet combat.
Poseidon cruiser.png
Poseidon Cruiser: The Poseidon Cruiser features around three times the defensive capability and twice the weaponry as the Apollo Fighter, in addition to being one of the fastest ships in the universe.
Prometheus destroyer.png
Prometheus Destroyer: This is the largest heavy ship in the universe, exceeded in power only by the Zeus. It packs massive firepower and can be used to smash through enemy defenses.
Titan attack platform.png
Titan Attack Platform: The Titan Attack Platform is the latest in planetary assault technology. It can be deployed into orbit in a solar system and act as a mobile base for your fleet.
Zeus: This is the heaviest assault ship. Its massive firepower is unrivaled.
