This is a single player enhancement mod for Armada 1. It includes additional ships and replacement for stock ships. The tech tree is also modified so that you can build the new ships in single player campaign. Basicaly most things are still the same as original Armada, but with enhanced graphics and better models.

As for system requirements, I've tested it on Asus EeePC (Celeron 630mhz) and HP mini-note (VIA 1.2Ghz, Atom N270) netbooks. It also works on x86 and x64 versions of Windows 7. Enjoy!

Rom battleships: Warbird has shield converter but is weaker than Norexan. Norexan requires less dilithium and crew, but need more officers.
Borg battleships: Tactical cube has regerneration, auto-assimilator, and holding beam, but require lots more dilithium, crew, officer, and time to build.

Okay so firstly a pretty good release. Stable, small download and quick install. However. I don't know about other players of the game but hardware theses days is capable of a hell of alot more. There are a lot better models there and surely you could have replaced certain support ships with other classes instead of those from A2??


Still. As I said. A good release but you could try pushing the limits of the pc/netbook hardwares you've tested this one.
