Full Model Name: United Nation Confederation Naval Shipyard
Role: Ship Construction/Repair Facility
Although named as a shipyard, the structure actually performs a variety of tasks other than ship or fighter construction. It also serves as an external dock for repairs.
This makes the shipyard a vital structure to have for forward expansion bases where damaged ships can be repaired and sent back into battle as soon as possible.
Multiple shipyards can work in conjunction within the same sector to share the build load. This is automated and shipyards will work with each other to distribute build orders so that maximum efficiency can be achieved.
