|Unit Information||Game Strategies||History|
Modern Infantry is a late game class of infantry units. They upgrade from the now-obsolete Gunpowder Infantry in the Industrial Age. Modern Infantry is trained and upgraded at the Barracks, requiring both Food and Timber.
Modern Infantry units are fast-moving, versatile soldiers, effective against most infantry units (except Machine Guns) as well as Artillery Weapons and Support Units. In turn, they can be countered with Armored Vehicles (Ranged Cavalry) and Machine Guns.
Modern Infantry complements the late game Heavy Infantry, which is more effective in fighting the armored vehicles, but very weak against infantry.
Unit costs Edit
Modern Infantry production cost increases progressively with every Barracks unit on the field or currently in production. The default increase is of 1 Food and 1 Timber for the second unit created, increasing further with every new unit until the cost cap is reached, which for military units is +125% of their original base value.
