Info

The Orca is a destroyer class ship. This powerful basic naval ship has large range and is key for taking out opposing ships and controlling shorelines. A group of Orcas can sit outside range of most shore based units and most defensive structures allowing a fleet of Orcas to take out an entire base’s shoreline with ease.

Its torpedo bay gives it additional DPS and makes it an excellent ship hunter.

However, Orcas do not have any anti-air capabilities making them very vulnerable to Bumblebees, Hornets, and other aircraft. Orcas need air support from Narwhals, which have anti-air capabilities, or fighters flying overhead.
