About

Unit Description

Although gradually becoming obsolete due to considerable advances in technology, there's still something inherently reliable about a horse-drawn chariot literally brimming with death.

Historical Description

Imperial War Wagons are extremely heavy versions of a chariot, in effect a mobile armoured battle tower pulled by two sturdy warhorses, where the high walls of the tower protect its crew from attacks from the ground. They are movable platforms for either transporting Imperial soldiers across the battlefield or providing a vantage point for Archers, Crossbowmen, and Handgunners to shoot the enemy. A War Wagon’s crew may also be armed with a variety of experimental arms courtesy of the Imperial Gunnery School’s arsenal. War Wagons can fit a piece of artillery onto their towers, so speed can be combined with battle-winning firepower.

Strengths & Weaknesses

Armour-Piercing Missiles

The damage of armour-piercing weapons mostly ignores the armour of the target, making them the ideal choice against heavily-armoured enemies. They are often heavier and attack at a slower rate though, making them less efficient against poorly-armoured targets.

Armoured

Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage.

Fire Whilst Moving

This unit can fire while on the move.
