Interested to know where people would spend their money on the following higher end sea units. Of course, I can see the att./def. stats for myself, but how good are they in terms of their mortality rates etc. Please don't say all of them or none of them; I'd prefer get an idea of your preferences and a why...

Amphibious Hovercraft 16/16
Mine-Launcher 11/26
Stealth Boat 22/19
Destroyer 25/23

Cheers!

I have both AH and ML as they are both very low Mortality rate. Only lost 1 AH and 0 ML.

I am collecting both as AH - strong against ground and ML - strong against sea

The stealth mortality is medium so not got any and haven't unlocked the Destroyer

Thanks fella! Not really wanting to buy all four, so I'm looking to focus on the 'best' two. Likewise, haven't opened the destroyer... is it also a strong against unit?

Ihave gradually moved up the sea ranks so started with frigates then got a boat load(excuse the pun) of sea scouts, then up to some cruisers and AHs.

Now I have the ML unlocked that will be choice of unit for the next few weeks as the defence stat is excellent for that price. (I am working towards the ultimate defence)

Rest of the ship prices sky rocket to well over 1m each after this.

Couldn't help on the destroyer "strong against" query but someone will prob have a spreadsheet nicely aligned for us to "sail" thru.

I'd agree your results are similar to mine. I had been buying the Ballistic Missile Sub but it doesn't have a great casualty rate but does kick up my stats and I am playing under the UK flag. But the B-52 has a bit more bang for the buck.

I have been stocking up on a few Mine Launchers but have bought 85 Stealth Surveillance drones for the slightly better defensive kick. Mine Launcher might actually be the better buy now that I revisit the stats and factor in my additional 10%

The destroyer is strong against nothing, but has a "very low" casualty rate. Of these four units you mentioned I have 61 destroyers. 55 amphibious hovercrafts, 20 stealth boats and 33 mine launchers. I have waisted money however on all those amphibious hovercrafts that my army consists of all higher units now and I don't even use them in combat. That is definitely something to consider. They are good units to start with, but eventually may be replaced by stronger units as you advance in the game. Furthermore the stealth boats I have, used to be at its highest 40 units in my inventory. I have lost way more of those units then all the others in discussion here probably combined. So in my opinion the mine launcher and destroyer are your best bet to invest in.

I haven't gone for the drones as didn't want to wait for the upgrade time so went for the mine launcher.

By the by Agent Orange that is a good avatar and he one I would have chosen.

Don't get much chance to speak to you on the threads due to time difference - we are like two passing ships in the night (sorry got the pun disease)

I haven't unlocked the destroyer or the stealth boat. Currently I'm working on building my fleet of mine launchers.

The hovercrafts are nice, I have some for offensive forces and haven't lost one in the last 50 attacks, but I believe building defense should have a priority over building offense, as you can pick your offensive battles. So once I unlocked the mine launchers, I took a break from building the hovercrafts. The hovercrafts just aren't strong enough defensively to give them a priority in my strategy.

SO, my top pick is the mine launcher. Very low casualty rate, highest defense on the list. When I'm done building these, I will probably be adding more hovercrafts to my offense, assuming I haven't unlocked a better unit by then.

I'm sure many of you know about this spreadsheet but I figured I'd add the link here. I've only been on the forum for
around 2 months and found this cruising old posts.

i personally went for the lvl 9 airfield instead of sea unit and i am not disappointed you should consider it because the 8/30 drone for 525000$ is really the best option with a really cool very low casualty rate

if you don't want to go for the airfield then i would say mine launcher don't buy hovercrafts .... i have 370 ambulances and now they are nearly all useless

I've been debating whether to unlock that next... Do they have a "strong against"?

Yeah what are the main units that are strong against air?

Does anyone know if the aircraft carriers are strong against air?
I'm thinking of upgrading my Dry Docks if they are.
Apart from that, I'm slowly buying AH, ML & Cruisers

My money is going to upgrades. I am stopping again at level 78 to increase my income. I found 200K an hour (average which is just silly) just isn't cutting it. Maybe might move ahead after another big jump.

I found the answer, the drones don't have a "strong against". I think I might aim for making my 3rd gen defense a mix of them and the mine launchers, the way I mixed the military ambulances and the sea scouts for my 2nd gen defense lineup.

TC - I don't recall what Nation Bonus you get, but that would be part of the consideration. A 20% Nation Bonus plus a 20% Building Boost for whatever unit type adds 40% to the attack and defense of any unit - so while ALL of the units you listed are great - the one that best suits your needs can be even better if you take advantage of those bonuses.

Personally, I prefer anything that is "Strong Against" either Air or Sea as most people choose one of those unit types to beef up on. I am currently Russia and go for the Air Bonuses - BUT - I also invested in the Naval Research to add some boosts to my Sea units since they have the most desirable Very Low casualty rate.

I really wish they would release a Very Low casualty rate for an Air Unit. Discussed this previously on a post about Uber Units they could release.

Close.

UK Bonus is 10%, Boost buildings are all 20% at level 10.
