|Built In||Fort (Needs to be researched beforehand)|
A juggernaut (or jug) is an unit from the original game, The Conquerors. This unit has to be researched first before being able to be built. These troops have higher health and deal more damage than a heavy soldier.
In early games, it is rare to see a juggernaut due to its having to be researched first and then getting a fort. In mid-late games, people still don't use them commonly but if used, they can kill off some tiny armies.
Juggernauts are primarily used as a way to make transportation easier. Since they take up two soldier slots and have over twice the stats of heavy soldiers, each jugg essentially counts as two-four soldiers, while only needing half the space in transport planes / transport ship. For instance, 5 juggs are better than 10 heavy soldiers, yet only need one transport plane (5 slots) rather than two (10 slots).
Attacking Strategies Edit
- Most people will only use them in mid-late games, it is a good idea to use them early if you want to destroy a tiny army of light mixed with heavy soldiers.
- They are commonly used in massive attacks towards secure, defended bases, as they can be a ground unit version of the Space Fighter.
