  • Infantry: Regular infantry soldiers; the mainstay of any military.
  • Reserves: Reserve infantry soldiers.
  • Paratroops: Elite infantry trained to assault enemy-held territory from the air, using bombers or transport planes. They may use parachutes or other methods.
  • Marines: Elite infantry trained to assault enemy-held beaches. They typically land from transport ships specially designed for amphibious assault.
  • Mountain, Desert, Jungle, and Tundra Infantry: Special Forces who are trained to operate in a particular type of terrain. They will be more effective than regular infantry in any terrain type, but are at their best in the listed terrain.
  • Cavalry: Soldiers who fight from horseback.
  • Tanks: Tracked armored fighting vehicles designed primarily to engage enemy forces with direct fire.
  • Artillery: Includes antiaircraft artillery, coastal artillery, and field artillery.
    • Antiaircraft artillery is designed to shoot down aircraft, and may be mobile or fixed.
    • Coastal artillery is designed to sink ships and is relatively immobile due to its large size, though it is sometimes mounted on special railroad cars to provide limited mobility.
    • Field artillery is mobile and is used in the field; it includes cannons and howitzers. It may be either towed (by animals or vehicles) or self-propelled.
      • Cannons use direct fire and are often designed for antitank use.
      • Howitzers use indirect fire and are usually employed against infantry.
  • Fighters: Fighter planes, including interceptors (designed for air-to-air combat) and ground-attack planes (designed to attack infantry and antiaircraft artillery).
  • Bombers: Bomber aircraft. They have limited air-to-air combat capability but can carry large bomb loads. Bombers can also carry paratroops.
  • Destroyers: Fast, manueverable surface warships designed to escort larger vessels and defend against torpedo boats, submarines, and aircraft.
  • Cruisers: Large surface warships capable of engaging multiple targets simultaneously.
  • Battleships: Very heavily armed and armored surface warships capable of engaging enemy warships or bombarding targets on the shore.
  • Aircraft carriers: Warships designed to carry and support fighter planes. They do not typically engage in combat directly and are usually heavily protected by escort ships.
  • Transports: Ships designed for transporting soldiers and supplies. They are generally protected by escorts, as they are unarmed. Transports designed for amphibious assault are more heavily armored and may have light weapons, but cannot effectively engage another warship.
  • Submarines: Submersible warships which can attack from underwater.
  • Chemical: A unit trained to employ chemical weapons. Each unit has one chemical weapon and thus can only be used once. The effectiveness of chemical weapons is heavily dependent on climate and weather.
