General Edit

Strategy Edit

Dragon Ships are strong against Arrow Ships and buildings but weak against Hammer Ships. In the Heroic Age, defensive buildings can out-range them, so they are vulnerable to counterattack at that time. However, when upgraded in the Mythic Age, they out-range them instead, making them valuable in taking down shore defenses. This helps transports to land safely to enemy territory. Since they deal crush damage, Dragon Ships are slightly effective against myth units.

History Edit

As warships became longer, navies began to mount larger weapons on them, such as catapults and ballistae. Dionysius of Syracuse constructed extra-large triremes capable of supporting artillery, and Alexander mounted siege towers on a pair of ship hulls during his unsuccessful siege of Tyre. Later Roman imperial galleys could bristle with all sorts of towers and artillery.
