Naval units

Template:Anthology All units representing ships and that need to be deployed in naval bases . Ships cannot upgrade to newer models, once researched. The only exception is that the CAG of a Carrier can upgrade to newer models, but not the carrier vessel itself.


  • An overview of all naval units (including brigades) for Armageddon, patch 1.2 can be found in this pdf file .
  • An overview for Doomsday, patch 1.2 also exists.

Capital ships

Screening ships


  • Submarine (SS). A submarine does not need screens to operate efficiently.
  • Transports (TP). These ships are very vulnerable and cannot attack in combat. They transport troops to operate an amphibious invasion .

Armageddon introduced naval brigades, to allow ships to be upgraded.

  • Carrier Air Group (CAG). This brigade exists in all versions of HoI. They represent the planes of carrier. Only a CV can hold this brigade and no other ship may.

All capital ships except a CV and a CVL may hold any of these brigades.

Screen ships, additionally, can be outfitted with an additional brigade type.
