Commandos are stronger and faster versions of the Rifleman. They are improved with Assault Rifle. Unlike the other variants of units, where as for example there would be an average unit, a faster but weaker unit and a stronger but slower/less defensive unit, commandos are both more powerful, defensive and faster variants of it's original counterpart (the Rifleman). However training them require various higher leveled buildings, for example a level 4 army fort which is 3 levels more than the rifleman requires. They become obsolete in the Future Age. They have an elite version called Commandos+ .
