Fast Transport Ships
Fast Transport Ships are one of two ways in which you can transport land units across the oceans and to other villages not on your own island. They can be used for both attacking purposes and supporting purposes.
In a battle they are unable to damage ships or land units, which means you need to send either troops or other naval ships alongside them if you want to attack or defend. Their only purpose is to carry land units.
Also, if you attack a Polis with only Fast Transport Ships and land units there is a high chance of all your units dying if the defender has defensive ships. This is because Fast Transport Ships are unable to damage ships or land units and because land units cannot attack ships. Another point made, is that if you send Fast Transport Ships unguarded and if they die in the naval battle then all your troops that they are carrying will also die with them.
The difference between Transport Boats and Fast Transport Ships is that Fast Transport Ships travel at a higher speed. However Transport Boats can hold more land units in each ship.
