4 Field Cannons arrive at your Home City Gather Point.
—In-game description

Thunderbolts of Illapa is a Big Button technology in Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition that is unique to the Incas and can be researched at the Stronghold once the Industrial Age is reached. Once researched, four Field Cannons appear in the Home City shipment point.

This technology, along with the Home City shipment "Tupac Rebellion", are the only ways for the Incas to acquire artillery by themselves.

With the Industrial Age Old Ways Home City shipment, the cost is reduced to 800 coin.
