 Ships are units that can form [[anacreon:​game:​movement|fleets]] and move between planets. They participate in [[anacreon:​game:​combat#​space_combat|space combat]] against [[anacreon:​game:​units#​planetary_defenses|planetary defenses]] or other ships. Ships are units that can form [[anacreon:​game:​movement|fleets]] and move between planets.

-Jumpships can move at high speed to any planet within 250LY of an owned [[anacreon:​game:​movement#​jumpship_movement|jumpbeacon]]. Explorers are an exception; they do not require ​jumpbeacons. The slowest jumpships are still 10x faster than the fastest starships or ramjets and over 200x faster than the slowest starships.

-Explorers have high sensor ability, which makes them good at revealing unexplored space and detecting fleets. They do not require a jumpbeacon ​to move.

 These are just called "​jumpships"​ by the game, which is kind of confusing.

They have weak [[anacreon:​lexicon#​armor]] and will not fire their weapons (this is a bug). They can land on worlds and will be [[anacreon:​game:​combat#​unit_capture|captured]] along with a planet.

 === Jumpcruisers ===  === Jumpcruisers === 
-Jumpcruisers combine high damage with fast speed. They are ideal for waging blitzkrieg-style attacks against enemy planets within [[anacreon:​game:​movement#​jumpship_movement|jumpbeacon]] range and for rapidly responding to enemy gunship attacks. They have medium [[anacreon:​lexicon#​armor]] and a medium-strength,​ medium-range [[anacreon:​lexicon#​attack_type|missile attack]].+Jumpcruisers combine high damage with fast speed.

 ==== Starships ==== ==== Starships ====
 Starships can move at low speed to any planet that is not inside or surrounded by [[anacreon:​game:​nebula]]. Starships can't be built by worlds in nebula. The [[anacreon:​game:​movement#​starship_movement|starship fleet]] symbol looks like a "​T"​ on its side.

 Starfrigates are much more expensive than gunships, but have lower attrition. They are extremely slow and are primarily used as a defensive unit to counter enemy jumpcruisers and starcruisers.

 ==== Ramjets ==== ==== Ramjets ====
 Ramjets can move at low speed to any planet within a contiguous [[anacreon:​game:​nebula]]. Ramjets must be built in nebula. The [[anacreon:​game:​movement#​ramjet_movement|ramjet fleet]] symbol is an elongated hexagon. Ramjets are also called "​ramships"​ and have the same unit roles as starships (gunship, starfrigate,​ and starcruiser). Ramjets can move at low speed to any planet within a contiguous [[anacreon:​game:​nebula]].
