AI War:Mercenary Space Dock
|This page is up to date for game version 6.010|
| Allows the construction of Mercenary Ships which are vastly more expensive than their non-mercenary counterparts, but they have a much larger ship cap.|
The Mercenary Space Dock can build the Fighter, Bomber, Missile Frigate, Etherjet, Parasite, Zenith Beam Frigate and Neinzul Enclave Starship, all these ships are available to build regardless of which bonus fleet ships you unlock during the game.
All ship constructed at the Mercenary Space Dock are equivalent to the Mark IV version of their regular fleet counterparts (except for the Neinzul Enclave Starship which is equivalent to the Mark II) and they cost 10 times as much Metal and Crystal to build, but their ship cap is 3 times bigger then their regular fleet counterpart.

How to use in your fleet
Despite mercenary ships being as powerful as a MkV ship, and being accessible from the start of the game, the massive and exorbitant cost of each individual ship makes producing these ships very economically straining.
The only time it would be viable to start producing mercenary ships is later in the game when you have a massive metal surplus and nothing to spend it on.
How to counter when in the AI fleet
The AI do not have access to the mercenary dock nor mercenary ships, since it has no need.
