Strategy Edit

War Barges are siege ships so are strong against arrow ships and buildings but weak against hammer ships. Defensive buildings such as towers can outrange them so they are vulnerable to counterattack in the Heroic Age. However, when upgraded in the Mythic Age, they outrange defensive buildings instead, enabling them to scour the coast for shore defenses. This will allow transports to land safely to enemy territory. Since they deal crush damage, War Barges do some harm to myth units.

History Edit

As warships became longer, navies began to mount larger weapons on them, such as catapults and ballistae. Dionysius of Syracuse constructed extra-large triremes capable of supporting artillery, and Alexander mounted siege towers on a pair of ship hulls during his unsuccessful siege of Tyre. Later Roman imperial galleys could bristle with all sorts of towers and artillery.
