A Fire Ship is a military naval unit that is available in Age of Empires II, Age of Mythology, and Age of Empires III.

Age of Empires II Edit

In Age of Empires II, the fire ship is a small ship with a "flamethrower" mounted in the bow. It has an attack bonus against other ships. it must come in very close to enemy ships in order to attack. It upgrades to Fast Fire Ship. Fire ships are good counters to most ships and deal damage quickly. They may even be employed in shallows against ground troops to good effect. However demolition ships are perfect counters to fast fire ships due to the close proximity with which a fire ship has to attack.

Age of Empires III Edit

Fire Ship Edit

The fire ship in Age of Empires III is a lit-on-fire, suicidal Caravel. It is only able to ram itself into an enemy ship or dock, severly damaging the ship or building.

Fire Junk Edit

The Fire Junk is a Chinese ship lit up for suicide missions. It's available from the Dock in the Colonial Age and is identical in stats to a regular Fire Ship. Beyond it's different name there are no differences.

Age of Mythology Edit

The Atlantean Fire Ship is similar to the hammer ships of other civiliations, being strong against siege ships, weak against arrow ships, and the best counter to naval Myth Units.
