—In-game description

The Arsenal Wagon is a wagon in Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties that can only be obtained by the namesake shipment sent from the Consulate by a Japanese player if they choose the Dutch as their ally (requires a level 25 Home City). It builds an Arsenal for free.

  • In The Asian Dynasties, the Arsenal Wagon always speaks Dutch even though it can only be obtained by the Japanese. This is also the case with Church Wagon and Bank Wagon. In the Definitive Edition, the Arsenal Wagon that can be obtained by the French and Germans uses the in-game dialogue of the male Settler of his respective civilization, and the Swedish Arsenal Wagon uses unique in-game dialogue files.
  • In The Asian Dynasties, due to a bug, the Arsenal that is built by this wagon always uses the German/Russian Arsenal variant in the Industrial/Imperial Age instead of using the Dutch variants. This was corrected in the Definitive Edition, where the Arsenal built by this wagon uses the Dutch variants through the Ages.
