almost at the 2 mill mark and dont think i will get to 3 mill in this raid so wondering what

BS is not a bad ship... but you will be able to get much better than that as you get stronger...
BS is easily outclassed by ... well ... every other tier 1 prizes released after the BS...

On the other hand, BCX is blazing fast and has top of the line built-in resist and evade...
This hull has it's own category, and is still going to be useful at higher level.

I guess since you have BC already, it may sound redundant, but I think BS is a dead-end...

I agree, even if kixeye offers to refit the battleship hull the bcx will build faster and cheaper and are tough fvf fighters. I only built 2 battleships, but have a full fleet of bc torps and a bcx ballistic fleet.

Now I have rays I don't use either bc or bcx that much, but I might refit the bcx to a pure anti-sub fleet in the future.

This menu hull raid is considered choosing. I got what I wanted in 2 days not without coining and now helping all my large ally considered what to get and doing targets for them for bonus. I tell my low level to get a Light cruiser (or LCX), Battle Barge A or a Battlecruiser (or X). These are upgrade from what you could reseach in Naval lab. My Mid level 30's/40's level I said HHA or HHB or Sea Scop A if by chance get into the 3rd tier I say mercury or mauler. My high level over 50's String Ray, DNX, Triton. Thresher or if possible MCX and the fall back are the mercury or mauler.

For Baser attacking: DNX, Thresher, Triton, SCX and MCX depends what you put on it and surprise Hellstrike.

For Base Defense: Goliath, Guardian, Triton, Thresher & Jug X and not surprising Hellstrike. You have to beef up the armor and special. Taking something out to get more armor or weapons is a must. If you want to be sneakie use String Rays with Pianha Depth Charges. Maninly for subs, I seen one String kill a who fleet of DNX mortars.

For FVF: String Ray, Cuda, Mercury, MCX, Interdictor, Spectre, Mako and Hellstrike. No one wants to fight FvF anymore. I go into any base hitter face if I catch them.

For Weekly & some major Raid. MCX, String Ray, SCX, Mercury, Mako, Battleship. Doing low level targets under lvl 30 on auto kill. SW, SS&SSA, Strings, Mercury, MCX, Strike Cruiser and BC(BCX).
I have not seen the Hellstrike in action in player used mode. So that up in the air.

@ Roberto

Just to be an ass ; where would you put the Hurricane?
For base attacking : Mauler (is the first 3 special base hitting hull)

Other than this omission, I agree with you
