The Tsikhe can be built faster than the Renaissance Walls and yields Faith in addition to its defensive bonuses. It plays to the Georgians' strengths well, so they should build it in all their cities as soon as possible after researching Siege Tactics.
High over the landscape, situated in the hills and rocky cliffs, the Georgian fortresses guard the countryside. The tsikhe feature high curtain walls with either rounded or triangular merlons (the solid part of the “cut outs” on the wall). A tower stands at each intersection of joined wall.
The Georgian fortresses were particularly difficult to assault due to their position on the high ground. Although this type of fortress existed during the time of Alexander the Great, the Georgians used them effectively through the 17th Century.
