Does it cost 1 or 2 AP?

It is considered a fleet though it takes two points of damage to destroy. So 1 AP will move a battleship to one band.

My only concern was for rebuilding, as long as it considered a fleet I'm good. Someone I was playing with thought that maybe I should have been paying 2 to play them.


Thanks for the response, both of you.

I've had a great time playing the game so far, Geoff. I love the COIN system and Twilight Struggle is among my all time favorite games. When I heard 4-player Twilight Struggle in 60-90 minutes and it was The Expanse universe (loved the books) I was really psyched. I'm so glad I was able to pick up a copy at GenCon.

To confirm, rebuilding costs 1 as well.

Battleships are fleets for all purposes except:

Full-strength they count as 2 strength for orbital control
If a full-strength fleet is REMOVED it is flipped to damage. Damaged fleets that are REMOVED are placed back on the mat.
1 AP can be used to flip a damaged fleet back to full strength in place.
When a battleship is built (for 1 AP) it comes to the board at full-strength.

Design background: For a long time we didn't have the 'damaged' side. They were just strength 2, and when they were Removed they just came off. But they were way too brittle, and always were first priorities for removal. It just didn't feel right. The current system is slightly more complicated, but feels much better.
