**Does not heal but does not lose hit points either. Edit

Forts can be made after discovering Masonry. They can be made by Workers, Settlers, Legions, Engineers, and Proletarians. A Fort is first required on a tile before building a Fortress. A Settler inside a Fort can claim that tile to found a city. A Fort gives no bonuses against Air units, Helicopters, or Armor. Forts make great outposts for border security and establish vision, even if not occupied by an army. They do not claim national territory, however. Build-time: 2 worker turns.

Fortresses are available with Construction tech and can be made by Workers, Settlers, Legions, Engineers, and Proletarians. They are much stronger than Forts, but first require a Fort to be built. Unlike Forts, they give defense bonuses against Air, Armor, and Helicopters. Fortresses claim national territory and establish borders. They give vision which gets a bonus after Invention tech is known. Build-time: 3 worker-turns.

Units in a Naval Base:Edit

Helicopters, Baloons, and Triremes can refuel inside Naval Bases. Edit

Naval bases are Fortresses with accomodation to allow ships to enter. They give refuge for ships to repair without the threat of kill-stack or the "Pearl Harbor effect." Building requirements: 1) Fort on a low-land tile cardinally adjacent to ocean, 2) Knowledge of Engineering technology. Build-time: 5 worker turns.

Note 1.2x is actually 1.33x vs missiles, for both naval base and fortress.

Units in an Airbase:Edit
