|“||Trains and upgrades artillery.||”|
The Artillery Foundry is a military building in Age of Empires III that trains and upgrades artillery, in addition to some infantry units. It becomes available upon reaching the Fortress Age (Commerce Age for British, Dutch, Ottomans, Russians, and Swedes).
The Haudenosaunee build the Siege Workshop, which functions identically to the Artillery Foundry, while the Aztecs, Incas, and Lakota do not have access to artillery and siege units. Asian civilizations build Castles, which combine the functions of an Artillery Foundry and an Outpost.
