Strategy

  • Artillery's ability to support infantry on attack is its main "selling point" improving the hit odds of a single friendly infantry. Just remember; this ability doesn't stack and each artillery only supports one infantry (unless you have a tech breakthrough which increases this).
  • Artillery is also capable on it's own, itself having 2 attack and 2 defense, making it a well rounded unit.
  • In some games, Artillery can be pulled by Mechanized Infantry, increasing it's movement to 2.
  • Just remember that Artillery costs an extra PU/IPC over Infantry, you should try having as much artillery as you have 2/3 of your infantry.

Appearences

Artillery arrived alongside Destroyer in 1999 with the original Axis and Allies: Europe. It represents both artillery and field guns or AT guns.
