|Flak strength / range||30 / 2|
Big, mean and armed to the teeth, the Alliance Machiavelli-class battleship is deployed in support of the ordinary cruisers to deal with particularly tough targets. It has powerful kinetic, laser, assault and missile batteries, but its defining feature is the spinal mount cannon that can inflict massive damage to a single target. Its armor is relatively thin for a ship of its size, but it has a very sturdy hull, along with better evasion and movement speed than its PACT counterpart. Its lack of shielding is one of its few drawbacks.
Weapons[edit | edit source]
The battleship's weapons are similar to the cruiser's, but generally do more damage while being less accurate. As with the cruiser, the battleship gets significantly upgunned at the time of Liberation Day.
Laser[edit | edit source]
A fairly powerful laser battery for long-distance shooting, more powerful though less accurate than the Alliance Cruiser's. Due to its inability to be double-fired and ineffectiveness against shields, it is largely relegated to a support role.
- damage: 250 x 1 (300 x 1 in LD)
- energy cost: 70 EN
- base accuracy: 110 (115 in LD)
Kinetic[edit | edit source]
Standard turreted kinetic guns, also trading off accuracy for damage compared to the cruiser version. Can be fired twice in one turn. The Liberation Day period upgrades have also improved accuracy significantly.
- damage: 430 x 1 (550 x 1 in LD)
- energy cost: 60 EN
- base accuracy: 65 (75 in LD)
Cannon[edit | edit source]
The battleship's primary weapon, and the most powerful kinetic weapon in the game, capable of sinking a PACT Cruiser with one hit. It's less accurate and flexible than its smaller guns but with 27.9-36.4% more damage per EN and far superior armor penetration. The Liberation Day period upgrades have also improved accuracy significantly.
- damage: 1100 x 1 (1500 x 1 in LD)
- energy cost: 120 EN
- base accuracy: 60 (70 in LD)
Missiles[edit | edit source]
The missile banks are a fearsome long range weapon useful in doing good reliable damage even against distant enemy units. The battleship's missiles hit harder than the cruiser's while having 25-60% larger volleys, and there's enough magazine space for two launches. Beware enemy Flak!
- damage: 80 x 8 (80 x 10 in LD)
- energy cost: 30 EN
- base accuracy: 100
Assault[edit | edit source]
The flak cannons can be used offensively against enemy targets. These are extremely powerful for an assault weapon, dealing over twice the per-shot damage of the cruiser's guns, although accuracy suffers again.
- damage: 25 x 15
- energy cost: 30 EN
- base accuracy: 63 (70 in LD)
