Each ship has a size class. Huge ships feature one ship token placed on top of two 76 mm x 129 mm large ship bases.
Huge ships follow all the rules governing ships in the Star Wars: Armada rule booklets. A huge ship consists of two ship bases, a ship model, a ship token, and a ship sheet. A ship sheet contains the same elements as other ship cards and is treated as a ship card for the pruposes of rules and game effects.
Additional Rules for Huge Ships
A huge ship has six firing arcs. In addition to the front, left, right, and rear firing arcs, huge ships have two auxiliary hull zones: right-auxiliary and left-auxiliary. These auxiliary hull zones are adjacent to the hull zones specified below.
- The right auxiliary hull zone is adjacent to the right and rear hull zones.
- The left auxiliary hull zone is adjacent to the left and rear hull zones.
Game effects that specifically refer to the left or right hull zones do not apply their effects to the auxiliary hull zones.
Once per round when it is a huge ship's turn to activate, it may receive a pass token to pass its turn instead of activating (its opponent activates a ship instead). A ship with a pass token must still activate during the Ship Phase. All pass tokens are removed during the Status Phase.
The following rules modify the setup rules. These rules only apply to huge ships.
Deploy Ships: When a player deploys a huge ship, part of its base must be touching that player's play area edge. The huge ship may extend outside of that player's deployment zone but its base must be completely within the setup area.
Squadrons placed within distance 1-2 of a huge ship that extends beyond its player's deployment zone must also be placed within distance 1-2 of that player's deployment zone.
A huge ship can perform up to three attacks during its activation (instead of up to two). It cannot attack from the same hull zone more than once per activation.
The following rules modify the ship movement. These rules only apply for huge ships.
Determine Course: Due to the size of huge ships, some maneuvers cause the ship to overlap the maneuver tool whether it is placed on either side of the ship. When performing the determine course step of the ship's maneuver, any course that would cause the ship to overlap the maneuver tool is an illegal maneuver and cannot be performed. Determine a different course instead.
Move Ship: When placing the maneuver tool, insert the guides of the first segment into the notches on one side of the rear ship base (instead of the front ship base). When placing the ship at the joint corresponding to its speed, slide the notches of the rear ship base over the guides at that joint.
When players determine their scores at the end of the game, a player's score includes half of the total fleet point cost (rounded up) of each crippled enemy huge ship in the play area. A huge ship is crippled if it has a number of damage cards equal to at least half of its hull value, rounded up. A crippled huge ship's fleet point cost includes the cost of all upgrade cards equipped to that ship.
