Advantages

  • Balanced DPS, a combination of cannon Spinals and high damage Turrets.
  • Has high total health compared to other Battleships.
  • Great mobility for a Battleship.
  • Easily shreds any Battleship and can take on some Dreadnoughts if the pilot is skilled enough.

Disadvantages

  • Extremely expensive for a Battleship, costing 500,000+ credits if every material is bought from the Mega Base.
  • Uranium takes up a lot of warehouse space (12K).

Strategy

  • Be careful when using this ship, especially during war, as it is a limited ship, and you cannot get it back if you lose it.
  • Use the turrets to shred the shield of an opponent, and then focus on spinals once the target is hulled.

Version History

  • Taken offsale in version ???
  • Both spinals received an additional Large Cannon (for a total of 3 Large Cannons per spinal) in version .72e1

Trivia

  • Added as a "secret" that requires a quest to build.
  • The Nautilus is one of only 2 ships in the game to have both an (F) and (G) spinal that are the both the same and front facing (the other ship with this attribute being the Coldfront).

  • The top Enclaves are larger than the bottom Enclaves.
    Location of the Nautilus wreck
