|“||Ships a Caravel full of Petards.||”|
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 Fortress Age is reached. It ships a Caravel with three Petards in it.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
The Caravel can play various roles, such as scouting, fishing, harassing Fishing Boats but most important of all, it can be used to sneak the Petards to a spot behind the enemy lines (just beware of shore defenses), and after the Petards disembark, they can be ordered to attack buildings of the player's choice.
