—A Swordfish crew's motto

The Swordfish is the primary vessel of the Foehn navy.

Official description

Swordfishes form the cornerstone of every Foehn naval formation. These agile military boats have been armed with an enhanced version of the pressure lance, similar to the one utilized by the Lancers in their combat with enemy tank divisions. With more space for equipment and the engine, the raw firepower of Swordfishes' lances vastly exceeds that of a single Lancer, making it capable of taking on the largest of enemy warships. Additionally, while Spinblades are not as common at the shores and on islands as they are inland, the engine of a Swordfish can benefit from its wind manipulation and acquire speed if need be.[1]

Overview

The Swordfish is the Foehn's main naval unit. Its main advantage compared to their counterparts is their raw firepower and enhanced speed from Spinblades. Their pressure lances are powerful enough to crush any ships, tanks and buildings within their range.

However, they also have weaknesses that a Foehn naval commander should be wary of. While its pressure lance is strong, it has a short range so the Swordfish won't have the first strike against its rivals. Their weapon is also ineffective against infantry, a flaw shared by Lancers and Pteranodons.

Assessment

+
  • Decent naval unit.
  • Versatile unit that can attack naval and ground units on the shore.
  • Can detect submerged and cloaked units.
  • Speed can be boosted by Spinblades.

  • Vulnerable to anti-ship weapons.
  • Not very durable.
  • Pressure Lance weapon has a short attack range.
  • Weak against infantry.

Trivia

  • Swordfishes (Xiphias gladius) are a family of large migratory and predatory fishes known for their long, flat bill akin to that of a sword.
