Transforms into a Blockhouse for frontier defense.
—In-game description

The Blockhouse 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 Chinese player if they choose the Russians as their ally. It builds a Blockhouse for free.

Home City Cards[]

As the Blockhouse Wagon is exclusive to the Chinese, only other civilizations' TEAM cards that affects them are listed here.


  • The Blockhouse Wagon always speaks Russian even though it can only be obtained by the Chinese.
  • In The Asian Dynasties, due to a bug, the Blockhouse that is built by this wagon cannot train banner armies and cannot be upgraded into Frontier Blockhouse and into Fortified Blockhouse. This was corrected in the Definitive Edition.
