Existing Candidates: Japanese
New Candidates: Venetians
Researched from a Castle Age unique tech for 500 food, 500 gold. Effect: Upgrades Fishing Ships to Armed Fishing Ships with +4 attack and +4 range.
Fires 3 arrows at enemy ships. Their combat capabilities will be limited to small raids, and cannot fend off large sea attacks. First arrow deals full damage, whilst the 2 secondary arrows deals 50% less damage.
If it was Japanese getting this tech, they would have the hardiest Fishing SHips due to the attack, on top of the 2x HP and +2 armor.
Consider this as Spanish Supremacy tech, but for Fishing Ships!
