Unit Information Game Strategies History
Shock Infantry
The Shock Infantry is the Russian unique Modern Infantry of the Information Age Information Age that replaces the standard Assault Infantry.


Compared to Assault Infantry, Shock Infantry costs -10 Timber Timber and have +1 attack strength.

Like all Modern Infantry, Shock Infantry are cheap, highly effective assault troops, best used against Heavy Infantry, Artillery Weapons and Support Units. When used in quantity, they can be somewhat effective against other things as well, like Ranged Cavalry and civilian structures. However, they are weak against Machine Guns and Tanks.

Like all late game infantry, Shock Infantry has a small chance to hit low-flying (attacking) aircraft.

Trivia Edit

  • The Shock Infantry is based on the Soviet shock army doctrine and are modeled after their 1960s-1970s equipment.
  • Shock Infantry appears to be equipped with AK-47 and wearing ushankas and great coats instead of a helmet and body armor (although it could be likely that their coats are covering their armor).
