The Galley is a light military vessel exclusive only to the Ottomans. The warship fulfills the role of the Caravel for the Ottomans. Like the Caravel, the Ottoman Galley is a light scout craft that can be used for scouting, fishing, and supporting heavier ships. Just like any other ship, the Galley can also be used as a Transport unit. The Galley can transport up to 50 units from one location to another. It is more fragile than the Caravel, but possesses a stronger attack and is also much faster.
One of the Galley's biggest advantages is its speed. This makes them effective for scouting undiscovered territory and transporting military units through the sea. Because of its low amount of hit points, Galleys in general should not be individually sent to naval combat as enemy ships, especially Frigates, can rip it apart in a matter of seconds. Thus, it is strongly advised to research technological improvements from the Dock as soon as possible.
