Retrofit Lab

A water-based lab used to research retrofitted hulls.
  — In-game Description 


  • Retrofitting hulls, weapons, specials or armors gives inherent upgrades to every copy of that type.  This contrasts with refitting a hull which applies is more akin to taking a weapon off a single ship and replacing it with a better weapon on that ship.
  • Retrofit Lab requires a Naval Lab Level 7 in order to be built.
  • Retrofit Lab can be upgraded to level 5.
  • Retrofit Lab Level 5 gives access to any level 5 retrofits, retrofit Lab Level 4 gives access to any level 4 retrofits, etc.
  • The related blueprint is also required before the retrofit research is available.
  • Only blueprints are retrofittable.  For example, the Hammerhead A, Hammerhead B & Battle Barge A are all retrofittable.  However, the Hammerhead and Battle Barge researched in the naval lab are not retrofittable.
  • Hull retrofit time increases according to the number of hulls of that type actually built.  However, retrofitting weapons, specials, armors or tactical modules is only 1 day each at least for all R1 retrofits.
  • Hull retrofits are designed for mid to high level players (approx. L40 and higher).  Kixeye designed the other retrofits for players level 55 and higher.  The uranium cost is a tough barrier to low and mid level players.

In March of 2014, many of the builds and research times have significantly decreased.  The old build times can help you estimate the new build times.  Resource requirements remain the same.
