The Escallop is a large freighter hull capable of transporting huge quantities of cargo across both short and long trade routes. In-Game Description


The Escallop is the Tier 2 Freighter hull of The People's Realm.

Overview & Strategy

With two Medium and eight Large General slots, the Escallop is well-suited to transporting either freight, fuel or citizens in large quantities. Its build time of four hours is identical to the smaller Zarion, but the Escallop is an unarmed hull, and so will be a tempting target for any raider. These ships should fly with an escort detail of either Solaris or Izzvils, both for armed defence and for their higher Flagship level and fleet radius, allowing larger convoys to be assembled.

At 800m in length, the Escallop is a large ship, and players still relying on Tier 1 flagships will struggle to fit these large freighters in their fleets. This bulk also makes for a fuel-hungry freighter; players should pay attention to both their choice of engines and the length of the routes they intend to ply.
