Units

Units in Call of War are separated into different categories: Infantry, Ordnance, Tanks, Aircraft, Naval and Secret. Units in each category have their own building requirements, resource costs, strengths and weaknesses.

Units can be produced in urban provinces via the build menu. To enable unit production of a specific category the required production building has to be constructed first.

Higher unit levels and more advanced units have increased production times and require their production buildings to be leveled up as well in order to maintain an acceptable production time.

Use the info-button in the build menu to open the unit details popup, which provides build costs and build times, exact combat values as well as unit descriptions. The most important combat values are the unit’s armor class, its damage against various armor classes, hitpoints, speed and range.


The following list provides a general overview over all existing units, their required production building and their purpose.
