The Heavy Transport lets you transport villagers, military units, and Artifacts across water. The Heavy Transport has more hit points, is faster, and carries more units than the Light Transport.


Ships built for carrying military units replaced smaller galleys when armies grew larger and targets became more valuable and better defended. It became necessary to move ever-larger armies for invasion, and to bring siege engines and supplies along for drawn-out sieges of coastal cities. The Heavy Transport represents a larger sailing ship, something like a Merchant Ship, built mainly for capacity at the expense of speed.
