** Main Forces.
*** '''Empire Of the Blazing Sun:''' Balanced/Gimmick. The Blazing Sun would've been a purebred Balanced/Generalist, if not for the massive amounts of ported incendiary weaponry. With no noticable weaknesses, decent mobility and good boarding abilities, the biggest hurdle for a Sun player is lower than average hull strength.
*** '''Kingdom of Britannia:''' Balanced/Ranger. The Queen's fleet are remarkably sturdy and can fire on max efficiancy for longer than most, which goes well with their longranged gunnery and copious amounts of torpedoes. Unfortunately, Britannia does less well in a straight-up tossle and wants to keep the firing line for as long as possibly.

*** ''Prussian Empire:'' Brute/Gimmick. The Prussians are generally decent statwise, but uniquely among most fleets they have a massively aggressive boarding game. This means that most Prussian armies go for the Coup d'Grace in close combat, unless they get up against the Australians, who can give them a run for their money.
*** ''Federated States of America:'' Spammer/Ranger. Properbly the best shooting faction all in all. On top of consistent die rolls, most models can turn on a dime, which allows them to sit way back and fire at the oppossing fleet.

* NotInThisForYourRevolution: The larger forces are generally in the war to win it, but the allied forces have little interest in the war. For example, the Ottoman Empire joined the side of the Imperial Bond to push the Russian borders, to allow for further expansion of their already-growing economy. Meanwhile, the Kingdom of Denmark is mainly in the conflict to protect their borders and avoid getting occupied by the Prussian Empire.
