The other guide is correct but I wanted to create a more gamplay oriented guide to help everyone.

Deployment:
This is the deployment I used for all 38 of the missions (8 Tutorial and 30 Main):

C X X X X X X X X D - C = Carrier
C X X X X X X X X D - B = Battleship
C X X X X X X X X D - D = Destroyer
C X X X X X X X X X - S = Submarine
C X X X X X X X P X - P = Patrol Boat
X X X X X X X X P X
X B X X X X X X X X
X B X X X X X X X S
X B X X X X X X X S
X B X X X X X X X S

Attacks:
I used almost exclusively the Carriers White attack and the Submarines Red attack, these are the two attacks around detecting entire lines of the board, the red will usually do two lines but stop when it finds a hit. Alternate between vertical and horizontal and every other line, as follows:
-----V---V---V----V---V
| X X X X X X X X X X
> X X X X X X X X X X
| X X X X X X X X X X
> X X X X X X X X X X
| X X X X X X X X X X
> X X X X X X X X X X
| X X X X X X X X X X
> X X X X X X X X X X
| X X X X X X X X X X
> X X X X X X X X X X

Once you have detected 3-5 boats then save up and use the Carriers Red attack which will always get you a better deal on Red shots, Try to never use the single Red attacks on guessing where a boat is. Also use common sense one when to change direction of the Red lines if there is a boat at the top for example and is ending the Red lines early.

Using this approach I completed each level (except level 24) in 1-2 tries, usually 1. The early 20s are the only difficult levels, levels 25-30 are the same difficulty of 1-20.

Level 24:
For this level you are going to need to get lucky, getting half the resources of the other team makes it very difficult, my only advice is that if the Carrier or Sub gets taken out early then just restart, you are going to need their attacks, and also try to use the Carriers Red attack as soon as you know about a couple of ships as resources are the main issue. For me it took about 6 goes but as I said, a lot of luck involved.

I hope this helps, If any of this is unclear, please say in the comments and I will try to explain better.

Good luck!
