Unit Information Game Strategies History
Transport Galleon
The Transport Galleon is the Transport Ship of the Gunpowder Age Gunpowder Age, automatically upgraded from the Transport Barge.


When Transport Barges become Transport Galleons, they gain +40 hit points. However, like its predecessor, it still moves fairly slowly and is extremely vulnerable to most attacks, especially from Light Ships and garrisoned defense structures. Therefore, landing operations should always be secured by warships and the coastline should be cleared of any Towers, Forts and city garrisons before the landing force arrives.

Like all transport ships, Transport Galleons cannot be built – a land unit will automatically embark on a transport vessel, when ordered to cross the sea (e.g. ordered to move to another landmass). However, a nation must have researched Science Science 1 (Written Word) and own at least one Dock to make sea transports possible in the first place. The unit's hit point percentage is transferred to the transport. For as long as a unit is embarked, it cannot attack nor use any of its active or passive abilities.

Trivia Edit

  • The Transport Galleon is listed to have a cost of 30 Timber Timber and 30 Wealth Wealth in the game files, although this has no effect in-game.
