Classes Of Enemy

GUN TURRETS

These defensive cannons can be mounted on rock ledges (ground turrets) or on battleships (ship turrets).

Torpedo turrets only fire torpedoes and are extremely dangerous.

To destroy them, one needs to recognize their dead angle. (Caution: the dead angle of these turrets Is bigger than that of ground turrets, but they will usually be covered by many other turrets).

The special thing about these turrets Is their locating system, which Is based on optical perception. This detection type can encompass a wide sweeping range, which depends on the orientation of the turrets.

Their second locating system Is acoustic, It usually doesn't have the same range as the optical one, but It operates in all directions. According to the quality of the acoustic locating system and the noise level of your own ship, you can approach the turrets without being detected. If a certain distance Is crossed, even the least noisy engine will not prevent discovery. You'll be detected and attacked!

TANKS

Tanks are mainly used to protect ground targets. Usually they're not very maneuverable and they cannot leave the ground, but they're exceedingly well protected and are equipped with heavy firepower. Due to their special alloys, Aqua tanks are tough to crack. There are light and heavy versions available.

SCOUTS

Scouts are the smallest but most maneuverable class of battleship. Scouts don't have excessive weaponry (only some torpedoes and board cannons), but they're extremely fast. A scout can even be a threat to a bomber with an Inexperienced pilot.

Every power bloc In Aqua has their own version of this class and, of course, the different pilots have their various tactics and maneuvers. Every scout can launch so-called "buzzers", I.e. probes which release distracting sounds to divert certain types of torpedoes.

BOMBERS

With their massive armor and numerous weapons systems, bombers are dangerous enemies. They're mostly used to cover flanks or to escort frigates or battleships.

There Is no point In trying to fight a bomber with Stanley torpedoes. The only chance a scout pilot stands against a bomber Is his speed (bombers are rather ponderous and slow) and expensive, highly effective torpedoes.

FRIGATES

Frigates are the battleships' little sisters. They usually have the coordination center of a battle group on board. Nobody can eliminate a frigate on their own; this calls for the coordinated effort of several ships. Frigates are usually escorted by bombers and scouts or reconnaissance ships.

A frigate's turrets are numerous and Its torpedo stores are not likely to run out during battle.

"HE WHO FIGHTS WITH MONSTERS MIGHT TAKE CARE LEST HE THEREBY BECOME A MONSTER. ANO IF YOU GAZE FOR LONG INTO AN ABYSS, THE ABYSS GAZES ALSO INTO YOU."
