final upgrade is Modern Infantry
The Archer is the first strong defensive unit in Civilization Revolution. It becomes available once the technology Bronze Working has been discovered. Archers cost the same as warriors, (10 production), have the same attack and movement and double the defense. This defense isn't met by an equal attack until the arrival of the Legion (CivRev).
- Archers inside cities do not have to advance into spaces occupied by enemies they have attacked and defeated.
- English Longbow Archers have a +1 defense.
