Fleet is a fairly common constellation made up of two ship-ties and is one of the familiar fours. It can be created from a normal ship by simply adding one cell diagonal to the tip of one.

Drawing a block between the two ship-ties will result in the block being eaten and the fleet being inverted. A 4 cell long diagonal line running parallel through the centre will do the same in just 4 generations.

The minimum number of cells required to form a fleet is 7; there are several ways to do this.
