The Settler Wagon is a German civilian unit that is featured in Age of Empires III.

Overview Edit

Settler Wagons are German Settlers who augment the German economy alongside regular Settlers. Unlike the French Coureur des Bois, they do not replace regular Settlers and cannot be built from the Town Center. German players begin each game with three Settler Wagons.

Initially, Settler Wagons can only be sent from the Home City. However, once the player has unlocked the "Germantown Farmers" card, they can be trained from the Mill, which usually negates the need to send Settler Wagons from the Home City.

The Settler Wagon is equal to two Settlers in terms of resource-gathering, cost and population requirements.

Tasks Edit

Settler Wagons can be assigned with the same tasks as Settlers.

Buildings Edit

Settler Wagons can build the following buildings:

Miscellaneous Edit

History Edit

"Prairie Schooners and Conestoga Wagons were two types of covered wagons used by settlers and pioneers to cross the early frontiers of North America. Prairie Schooners were lighter and needed two or four horses or oxen to pull them. Conestoga Wagons were big, heavy wagons that needed teams of six or eight to pull them along. Before railroad tracks crisscrossed the Great Plains, Conestoga Wagons hauled most of the freight that went back and forth between the east and west coasts. Conestoga Wagons originated in a German area of Pennsylvania."
