There are several different roles ships can fill in a fleet.

1. Gunship

A gunship should always have decent cannons; very rarely should they have cannons that rank higher than 3.

The "Vanilla" fleet is the most common type of fleet, and easiest to build. It's especially useful for teaching the game to new players. It consists of three types of ships:

  • The Desginated Gold-Runner
  • The Support Ship

Your main gunship should have four or five masts, with cannons no higher than rank 3. These cannons should also have a mix of L- and S-range, though this doesn't matter...
