An old player with 50 to 100 trillion mines to improve lifeforms can improve LF, HF, Cruiser, B.Cruiser, Battleship and Destroyer by around 15 % of the original strength.
Let's say attack strength of Destroyer is 2000. We have 25 weapons tech, and we get 50% enchancement from lifeform techs (200x25)+2000+(2000x50%)=8000
You can get way bigger numbers for other ships.
"General Overhaul (Cruiser)" level 21 costs only 51M/37M/17M, and my total is only 203. (also 59 levels total of "cruiser mkII")
left is without buildings improving technology bonus (letf: on moon, right: on planet)
So same ships change power if they fly from the moon to the planet... It's a stupid mechanic. I hope designers rethink these things.
