|This article is about the building in Age of Empires. For fortifications in general, see Defensive structure.|
The Fortification is a wall in Age of Empires. It is an upgrade of the Medium Wall which increases hit points by 100. It can be upgraded at Granary once the Iron Age is reached. Like all buildings, its hit points increase, totaling up to 480; and the build time is reduced when Architecture is researched.
Civilization bonuses Edit
- Babylonian and Shang Fortifications have double hit points, with a maximum hit points of 960. Thus, Babylonian and Shang Fortifications have the highest building hit points before the introduction of the Zenobia's Tower in The Rise of Rome.
- Fortifications are not available for Carthaginians, Macedonians, Minoans, and Yamato.
