Boosts the armour, damage and speed on the ships of the Imperial Navy.
Fortified Fleet is the Imperial upgrade, which can be accessed via Top Secret Protocol menu.
This upgrade can give the pure naval Imperial units (Yari Minisub, Sea-Wing/Sky-Wing, Naginata Cruiser, Shogun Battleship) 25% additional armor, 25% additional speed, and 25% additional vision. Affected units also have the flag of Empire painted prominently on them. Higher threat levels also reduce the cooldown of special abilities slightly. This does not affect infantry units, nor air units above water, but it does affect Mecha Tengus hovering at sea as well as Tsunami Tanks and Ore Collectors.
- The extra painting from the Fortified Fleet does not apply to vessels built before the upgrade in the original Red Alert 3 with the reinforcement fleets in the Graveyard of a Foolish Fleet as an exception. It was fixed in Red Alert 3: Uprising.
- Advanced Aeronautics - Allied aircraft upgrade counterpart.
- Grinder Treads - Soviet grinder units upgrade counterpart.
