It has fewer hit points and fires slower than its original counterpart, but fills it up with strength per projectile, more range and does damage to a certain location rather than a single unit. Because of its relative low amount of hit points compared to other units, a successful naval victory through a full-scale assault can be obtained by escorting them with a large group of Triremes.
Being a Trireme, it is not an upgrade to Trireme itself, but a separate unit. It can be upgraded into a Juggernaught once Engineering is researched. It benefits from such researches as Alchemy for its attack strength, Ballistics for its accuracy and Engineering for its range.
- Alchemy: Increases attack by 1.
- Ballistics: Increases accuracy.
- Engineering: Increases range by 2.
- Catapult Triremes can be upgraded to Juggernaughts.
