“Quick-training, Pikeman who quickly loses hitpoints, becoming less effective over time.”—In-game description
The Sentry is a melee heavy infantry in Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties that is unique to Asian civilizations (Chinese, Indians, and Japanese) and can be spawned through Sentry Uprising at Town Centers. It is similar to Minuteman and Warrior, but attacks in melee and does well against cavalry, similar to a Pikeman.
Like Irregulars, Sentries lose hit points over time and stops when the unit has 1 hit point left. The Indian Sentry has a different appearance to the Chinese and Japanese ones, but are statistically identical.
