Heavy Gunboat

The Heavy Gunboat is a unique vessel, as it features the Matryoshka perk. The Heavy Gunboat itself is built around a standard Gunboat so that when destroyed, combat can be resumed in this base model. This by itself makes the Heavy Gunboat an exceptional foe, but when the massive 22.8 ZW power output is considered it makes the ship even more fearsome.
