A ship consists of a ship base, a ship model, a ship token, and a ship card. All components must match the ship’s type, and the name on the ship card must match the name on the ship token. The ship token is placed on the base so that the illustrated ship icon is placed over the FFG logo, which indicates the front of the base.
The ship token holds the information about the shield values and armaments, indicating the color and number of dice that can be used during an attack, for the four hull zones of the ship and the anti-squadron armament. The lines on the ship token mark the hull zones and hull zones’ firing arcs.
