Template:AnthologyAll 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.

Naval brigades

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.
