After Fireships become Heavy Fireships, they gain +40 hit points, +9 attack strength and +2 movement speed.

Heavy Fireships, like Fire Ships in general, are weak ships loaded with explosives, intended to detonate when they hit an enemy ship or structure. Enemy ships will usually take heavy damage or are immediately destroyed. All Fire Ships are effective against Heavy Ships and Bombardment Ships, but can be countered with Light Ships.
