The Demolition Ship is a warship available to all civs (except for Denmark). It is a fast ship filled with gunpowder that explodes on contact with other sea units and buildings close to the shore. Bavarian demolition ships have additional hitpoints. The demolition ship has an upgrade, the Heavy Demolition Ship, which is no longer playable.
Available to: All except Denmark
Trained at: Dock
Cost: 120 Wood, 100 Florins
Armor/Pierce Armor: 0/3
Special: explodes; +220 vs. buildings.
This ship might be expensive, but it is fast and excels best against the Longship, which can not destroy the Demo Ship from a distance. It also excels against Privateers, as their cannonball travels too slowly to hit the Demo Ship (except in the case of English ships).
