Unit Information Game Strategies History
Sabotage half size version.png In the Extended Edition, this unit/building is affected by a damage bug.


The Clipper is the Dutch unique Light Ship of the Enlightenment Age.png Enlightenment Age that replaces the standard Sloop.


Compared to Sloops, Clippers have +5 hit points, +1 attack strength, +1 armor, +1 movement speed, and do not take bonus damage from Heavy Ships and Aircraft, but lack the damage bonus against Helicopters, Fire Ships, and Submarines that standard Light Ships have. They do, however, also lack the negative damage modifier against Fishermen which standard Light Ships have.

Due to an animation bug their attack rate is slower than Sloops[1], and Clippers are also unable to fire while moving[2], making them overall much worse than Sloops.
