The Light Warship is a fairly common warship available to most civilizations. Most Civilization's light warship is a Bireme Galley, powered by two decks of Oarmen built for speed and power having a tipped point at the front for Ramming purposes which can be an decisive way to engage enemy warships. It is also capable of ranged combat, firing anywhere from 2 to 22 arrows at a time - garrisoning additional Infantry on board will provide this additional firepower.


Special Notes[]

  • A Light Warship may only carry Infantry, Cavalry and Support Units. As its not capable of carrying much heavier loads such as Elephants or Siege Equipment.
  • As of Alpha 15, the Ram Secondary attack is not implemented and warships only have ranged attacks.
