The Condottiero armor class is an armor class introduced in patch 5.7 of Age of Empires II HD: Rise of the Rajas. All units that have an attack bonus against this class deal bonus damage against the Condottiero, which is trainable by Italians and their allies only.

As the Condottiero was supposed to be an anti-gunpowder unit, it was given +10 infantry armor, mainly to negate the Hand Cannoneer's +10 bonus damage against infantry. However this meant that the Condottiero also resisted other anti-infantry units like Cataphracts. To narrow the role of the Condottiero as anti-gunpowder, it was given its own specific armor class in patch 5.7. It now only resists gunpowder, and all conventional (non-gunpowder) units who have an attack bonus against infantry receive their attack bonus against this armor class.

The way this armor class works the value is the (non-gunpowder) unit's anti-infantry attack if it is less than 10, otherwise 10.

Anti-Condottiero units[]

The following units have an attack bonus against the Condottiero armor class. They are sorted descending by the amount of bonus damage they deal.

+10 bonus attack

+9 bonus attack

+4 bonus attack

+2 bonus attack

+1 bonus attack

Technologies[]

The following technology gives the following units an attack bonus against the Condottiero armor class:

This ensures Cataphracts with Logistica deal the same bonus damage against Condottieri as against other infantry units (+15). It does not apply to Elite Cataphracts as they already deal the same bonus damage against Condottieri as against other infantry units (+18).

Anti-infantry units which are not anti-Condottiero units[]

Since this armor class is identical to the infantry armor class, except against gunpowder units, it is easier to understand which units do not deal their anti-infantry attack bonuses. All values below and equal to 10 are eliminated, and those above 10 are reduced by 10.
