Important for Fleet Officers
Strength - Fleet size does not have to be posted publicly. It should
only remain posted within the Secret Topic Area for your faction. The enemy
does not need to know what ships you have unless you are in direct combat against
them. That is what espionage and surveillance is for. Intelligence in the past
has not existed. I want to change that. If they want to know what you have,
let them try to find out.
2) Fleet Location - Same
thing. Why would the New Republic know where Imperial ships are located? And
vice-versa. You do not have to state where your fleet is publicly (although
it will be posted in the Secret Info Areas). They might have an idea, (ie:
the Corellian SECTOR) but they don't know if it's Corellia, Sacorria, or
some other system. If they want to know, let them invest in spies and surveillance.
3) Gathering your Fleet
- In most cases the majority of your fleet will be on patrols and guarding other
areas of space during normal times in GF. When you wish to attack, you will
"Recall your fleet" to get it back to full strength. If enemy intelligence is
in the area they will hear about "the Rebel fleet amassing near Sullust".
When attacking a planet that has a fleet unsuspecting, the majority of THAT
fleet will be on patrols and escorts, etc... Thereby, leaving little ships defending
4) NPC ships - When recalling
your fleet for attack, it is possible that several ships in the surrounding
area (other Imperials on patrol) will join with your Strike Force. As
a result, you will be able to use these NPC ships as your own for the remainder
of the assault.
Similarly, the planet you are attacking my have distinguished visitors, ships
refuelling, or dropping off cargo. These NPC ships will be added to the enemies'
fleet to help defend the planet.
5) Ship stats: Go to the
web site for all ship stats.
6) Fighters - There are
'12' fighters per squadron in Galaxy Force. Except for various elite squads
that may have other amounts. To see the fighter complement aboard each ship,
please check out the web site stats.
7) Ship Building - more
on that later.
