|“||Ships an Ironclad.||”|
Exploration Fleet is a Consulate shipment in Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties that can be sent by Indians and Japanese if they choose the Portuguese as their ally once the Industrial Age is reached. It ships an Ironclad.
The Ironclad can then be used to explore, to shell distant positions, fight against enemy ships, but most important, to help the player defeat Treasure Guardians at water, such as Sharks and Orcas, in order to collect Treasures.
