Description[edit | edit source]

Roman Legions were massive armies comprised of solider counts in the thousands. These armies utilized an infantry system called maniples – with 120 men in 12 files and 10 ranks, all part of a much larger organized structure. Armed with a pilum javelin, gladius sword, metal helmets, armor, and shields, soldiers shocked opponents by throwing their pilum and followed up with the gladius in close quarters.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Legion units can construct Roman Forts.
