The Man O' War fires lighting bolts rather like the Son of Osiris, but not as deadly, enabling them to strike multiple targets at once. They deal a large amount of hack damage, which most ships have little protection against. They also have a large amount of hit points and are well armored. They are also powerful naval support units as their attack can easily kill units and destroy buildings near the shore as well. Overall they are fearsome naval units that are difficult to counter. However they are quite expensive and take up a large amount of population space, limiting the amount that can be created. Ranged heroes near the shore are the best way to take Men O' War out.
Scientific name -- Phsyalia mantalos
Size -- Tentacles up to 100' long!
Diet -- Omnivore, mostly fish
This monstrous siphonophore was actually a collection of creatures that cooperated to move and feed and fight. The 100 foot long tentacles produced a toxin that is almost as potent as cobra venom which the organism used to stun prey. For defense the creature could generate and direct an electric bolt, like a stroke of lightning. Physalia mantalos propelled itself by raising and lowering its crest to catch wind like a sail.
In real life, the Portuguese Man o' War is a jellyfish-like creature of the order Siphonophorae. It can't shoot bolts of lightning, though it is highly venomous and resides in tropical waters, often venturing into coastal areas.
