What are the different Troop Types?[edit | edit source]

Troops have three different attack ranges: Melee(0-1), Mid-Range(2) and Long Range(3). Also known as front row, middle, and back row.
Each type of troop has a special ability that modifies its stats. In the recruit screen below the stats there’ll be an Icon you can touch to see this ability.

How many troops can I have?[edit | edit source]

You can have a lot of troops but you can only send a certain amount at one time based on your fleet size. So let's say your fleet size is 40,000 but you have 150,000 troops. You will still only be able to send 40,000 at a time.

How do I increase my fleet size?[edit | edit source]

Your fleet has a starting size that can be increased.

  • Upgrade your garage
  • Research in your garage
  • Research Leadership technology in the Academy to increase the max number of troops you can fit in one Fleet.
  • Officers like Godfather & Major Morgan boost fleet size as well

Note: Different troops take up different amounts of space in the fleet. This is where Troop Formation becomes important.
