The Fire Junk is a Chinese demolition ship in Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties. It rams targets, exploding during the process to deal great damage.

Overview

The Fire Junk is a cheap ship, with a high attack, high speed and a great line of sight, the highest in the game for a ship, even higher than a monitor's, but low hit points, no range and it can be used only once. It is mainly useful for quickly destroying ships, especially fragile ones and ones that transport units. It can also useful against land units and buildings directly adjacent to the water, especially when the enemy has them in tight bunches, allowing to kill multiple units at once. They can also prove useful in battles to destroy docks quickly, preventing the enemy from training a fleet.

A weakness against human players is that if the enemy ship flees, the Fire Junk detonates too early.

Notes

  • The game considers the attack from the Fire Junk a hand attack type, which deals siege damage.
  • It uses the same model as the War Junk.
  • When it is trained it quickly begins to burn.
  • The ship can burn infinitely.
