Sabotage half size version.png In the Extended Edition, this unit/building is affected by a damage bug.


The Caravel is the standard Light Ship of the Medieval Age.png Medieval Age, available to upgrade from the Dromon and are built at the Dock.


After Dromons become Caravels, they gain +15 hit points, +1 attack strength, +1 attack range, +3 movement speed, and +1 line of sight.

As with all Light Ships, the Carrack is the fastest type of ship, making short work of enemy Fishermen, and can fire sideways while on the move, making them the best unit to explore the waters and harass the enemy, as long as they keep their distance from the stronger Heavy Ships, and will make quick work of Fire Ships, specially when using its superior speed to hit them from a safe distance.
