Submarines

Azimuth

Azimuth
Azimuth.png
Superior speed, sleek design, and quality-of-life systems make this submarine a favorite among wealthy Coalition captains who manage to make it to retirement.
Class: Scout
Price: 10,000mk
Dimensions: 34x8 m
Recommended crew: 3-5
Recommended crew experience: Beginner

Berilia

Berilia
Berilia.png
Berilia is one of the biggest cargo ships on Europa. Its two engines and three ballasts require a copious amount of power to operate, and keeping the machinery in good working condition is a handful for even a moderately large crew.
Price: 15,000 mk
Dimensions: 61x17 m
Recommended crew: 12-16
Recommended crew experience: Experienced

Dugong

Dugong
Dugong.png
Compared to larger vessels, the Dugong series is overshadowed in all aspects except one: their reliability for their price is world class. They're lacking in firepower and speed, so smart maneuvering is key.
Class: Scout
Price: 6,000 mk
Dimensions: 34x8 m
Recommended crew: 3-5
Recommended crew experience: Beginner

Humpback

Humpback
Humpback.png
A former military vessel, WH4-L3 'Humpback' has been outfitted to withstand most of the dangers in deep Europa. Her relatively high velocity is offset by low maneuverability. As she's still boasting an older model reactor, power needs to be supplemented by a backup battery array or the crew will find themselves unable to run all of the new equipment.
Class: Attack
Price: 7,800 mk
Dimensions: 44x9 m
Recommended crew: 4-6
Recommended crew experience: Intermediate

Kastrull

Kastrull
Kastrull.png
The Kastrull is a dependable attack sub class bringing plenty of firepower to any fight, and although it's not very nimble, it does sport a drone gunship as standard. Keep in mind that with its experimental open ballast tanks, low tolerance to flooding and numerous crew stations, a large, experienced crew will get the most out of this sub.
Class: Attack
Price: 21,000 mk
Dimensions: 45x11 m
Recommended crew: 8-12
Recommended crew experience: Experienced

Orca

Orca
Orca.png
With a relatively high top speed and fantastic ascent and descent characteristics due to her three large ballast tanks, Orca class subs are agile vessels, let down only by their small compliment of weapons, unreliable engine and reactors with a greater than average hunger for fuel.
Class: Scout
Price: 9,000 mk
Dimensions: 41x10m
Recommended crew: 3-6
Recommended crew experience: Beginner

R-29 "Big Rig"

R-29
R-29.png
R-29 is a heavyweight transport ship. While not terribly well armed against Europa's underwater denizens, it has been retrofitted with two powerful electric discharge coils. Original design by rav2n.
Class: Transport
Price: 14,500 mk
Dimensions: 50x12 m
Recommended crew: 5-9
Recommended crew experience: Experienced

Remora

Remora
Remora.png
A range of customization options are available for Remora. In this model, some of the main hull space has been replaced by a detachable ballast and a remote-controlled drone. A large crew is needed to operate this submarine
Class: Deep Diver
Price: 16,000 mk
Dimensions: 43x15 m
Recommended crew: 7-12
Recommended crew experience: Experienced

Typhon

Typhon
Typhon.png
Typhon class subs are known for their brutish appearance, reasonable array of light and heavy firepower, and their general dependability. Any captain should be aware of their poor rate of descent and unimpressive top speed.
Class: Attack
Price: 11,500 mk
Dimensions: 40x14 m
Recommended crew: 4-9
Recommended crew experience: Intermediate

Typhon 2

Typhon 2
Typhon 2.png
Typhon 2 is an overhauled version of the venerable Typhon class of sub. Serving as a heavy gunship, the Typhon 2 class subs remain slow and ugly, but with the benefits of better survivability for their crews.
Class: Attack
Price: 20,000 mk
Dimensions: 40x14 m
Recommended crew: 4-9
Recommended crew experience: Intermediate

Shuttles

Shuttles are much smaller submarines used mostly as respawn vessels in multiplayer. They very often don't have their own nuclear reactor and their batteries are often fully charged and can store more kW power than the main submarine.

Respawn shuttles spawn only if a certain percentage of players has died. This can of course be changed to the server host's desire.

Upon spawning in the shuttle there will be fully stocked diving suits and underwater scooters, the number of spawned suits and scooters is according to the respawned player amount.

They can be used in case the shuttle is not able to dock safely to the main submarine.

Most shuttles have barely any hull, because of that they are easily sunk by most creatures, impact from rocks or other submarines. So knowing how to steer them is crucial.

Hemulen

Hemulen
Hemulen.png
For when you need extra room to stretch your legs or want some space between you and the poor, choose Hemulen shuttles.
Class: Shuttle
Dimensions: 20x6 m


Selkie

Selkie
Selkie.png
The workhorse of the colonies, these little shuttles have good speed and dive/ascent characteristics, but they are fragile and their low-capacity batteries limit their range somewhat.
Class: Shuttle
Dimensions: 11x3 m


Venture

Venture
Venture.png
Originally intended as research vessels, Venture shuttles have been co-opted as a more robust alternative for travel between outposts and submarines.
Class: Shuttle
Dimensions: 13x6 m


BunyIP

BunyIP.png

The BunyIP is a respawn shuttle. It was depreciated in 0.9.7.0.

It contains three batteries that can run out of power quickly and three Diving Suits. Its velocity is lower than most vanilla submarines. It is also dangerous when the crew is not trusted, as it can be easily flooded by opening the emergency hatch.

The BunyIP was merged with the old Selkie into a new, improved shuttle also called Selkie in 0.9.7.0.

Drones

Drones are small submarines. They are battery powered, remotely controlled, and extremely fragile. They are not made to transport humans or cargo. Their task typically is to provide remote scouting and firepower. Two default submarines have their own shuttle, the Remora and the Kastrull.

In a Campaign, lost shuttles can be recovered for 1,000 mk at a Shipyard.

Remora Drone

Kastrull Drone
