Power of Innovation

Unique units

The Americans' line of unique Gunpowder Infantry and Modern Infantry units have increased hit points compared to the standard units they replace and lessened movement effects of terrain, as well as a special "automatic Entrench when idle for 5 seconds" ability. This special auto-Entrench ability does not require a General and functions even inside enemy and neutral territory, making them useful for protecting siege units during sieges and defending newly captured cities still under assimilation. When moving over water, Marine transports have +70 HP compared to the standard transport and also have +2 moves per Military.png Military research.

Damage-wise, American unique units have the same base attack damage and attack rate as the standard units they replace. However, Continental Marines don't receive the +20% damage bonus against Heavy Infantry that Musketeers do, so they do less damage to Heavy Infantry than the standard Musketeers they replace. Additionally, most Light Infantry, Gunpowder Infantry, and Modern Infantry have a 5% damage penalty against Light Cavalry and Heavy Cavalry, but the Americans' unique units do not have this penalty (nor do the Modern Age.png Modern Age Infantry), so they effectively have a 5% damage bonus versus those unit types compared to the units that they replace, except for Marine Infantry.
