- See also: Artillery (army role)
Artillery are large siege/artillery units in the Industrial Age.
A new aspect of these units is that from the Imperial Age, siege vehicle upkeep starts to costs Oil instead of food.
They have a stronger version called a Field gun and slower variant more effective against vehicles & air units called a Howitzer. Barbarians use versions called 25 Pounders.
They required an Army fort (Building), a Factory (Building), Gunsmith (Building) and an Academy (Building) to be trained, although these requirements may have been simplified in the pre-release version of the game.
They are improved with Explosive shells. They become obsolete in the Future Age. They have an elite version called Artillery+ .
