This article is about the technology. For the unit, see Cannon Galleon.

Cannon Galleon is a technology in Age of Empires II that can be researched at the Dock once the Imperial Age is reached and Chemistry is researched. Once researched, Cannon Galleons can be built.

Cannon Galleon is available to all civilizations except for the Aztecs, Cumans, Huns, Incas, and Mayans.

With update 47820, the technology was removed from the game, meaning that Cannon Galleons become available once Chemistry is researched.
