Ships:
Weapons
Weapons can destroy ships and orbital structures.

Strength is given for all ship equipment except for Hulls and Specials. This number relates to the amount of increase in the power bars on the ship building and ship display screens.

Range is in "cubes" - the smaller squares on the grid (you must zoom in close to see the small squares) - otherwise the display only shows larger squares that count as 5 "cubes". I know it's difficult to judge distance in the game in 3D, but you can use this general guide - a plasmatron (range 100) can shoot almost clear across the system - while a Mass barage gun (range 25) can only hit a ship a few ship lengths away.

Industry Cost tells you how many days an item will cost to build based upon your industry strength. If you have an industry strength of 50, it will take 2 days to build an item with an industry cost of 100.
