This article is about the unit in Age of Empires. For the unit in Age of Mythology, see Juggernaut.

The Juggernaught is heavy war ship in Age of Empires. It is an upgrade of the Catapult Trireme and is available once Engineering is researched. The upgrade, available at the Dock, costs 2,000 food and 900 wood. Like all stone throwing heavy siege weapons, Juggernaughts deal 28 bonus damage against buildings after accounting for building armor.

The Juggernaught is far superior compared to its previous form in splash damage and more importantly, the amount of hit points. Before the Definitive Edition, the Juggernaught had the capability to knock down trees. Since the cost is very expensive in normal games such as random map, players usually ignore the upgrade and prefer the Catapult Trireme. However, in Deathmatches, this upgrade is very useful, especially if the player chooses the Phoenicians since their siege ships have the ability to fire +30% faster than ordinary ones.

Flying Dutchman Edit

A Juggernaught-like cheat unit called the Flying Dutchman can be obtained in the Scenario Editor and can also be summoned if the player types Flying Dutchman in the chat box. In appearance, it appears as a Juggernaught, but not only is it far superior in attack, it can also travel on land as if it were a land unit, as well as being able to travel on water. This unit can also be obtained in normal games via a cheat code.
