I was certain I had posted this information previously and thought I had put it in the SS Forum - but, it's not there. So, in the interests of putting this somewhere easy to find I'm putting the info here.

## Overcloakers

As most players know, overcloakers require mass as well as cloaks. I am listing here maximum overcloakers for the Galleon and Nubian hull for both SS and non-SS races including their total cloak units. I don't need response posts about the 2 scanners - do what you want with your designs - these are simply the maximum overcloaker designs possible.

To find out how cloaked your fleets will be, add up all the cloak units of all the cloaks in the fleet and divide by the mass of the fleet. You need to end up with 750-800 cloak units per kt for 90% cloaking.

### Maximum Galleon Overcloaker

Non-SS, IS, SD SS IS SD 709,800 cloak units 2,997,000 cloak units 785,120 cloak units 874,720 cloak Units Trans Galaxtic Drive x 4 Trans Galactic Drive x 4 Trans Galaxtic Drive x 4 Trans Galaxtic Drive x 4 OR Interspace 10 x 4 OR Interspace 10 x 4 OR Interspace 10 x 4 OR Interspace 10 x 4 4 x Tritanium Armor 4 x Tritanium Armor 4 x Tritanium Armor 4 x Tritanium Armor 10 x Super Stealth Cloak 10 x Ultra Stealth Cloak 8 x Super Stealth Cloak 8 x Super Stealth Cloak 2 x Eagle Eye Scanner 2 x Robber Baron Scanner 2 x Eagle Eye Scanner 2 x Eagle Eye Scanner 2 x Speed Trap 20 2 x Speed Trap 50

A note for those HE players since the Metamorph is better than the galleon for an overcloaker.
