The Caravel (for Friesland and Saxony the Likedeler, for Brandenburg the Kraweel) is the upgrade of the Carrack, a long-ranged, cannon-equipped warship. Only a few civilizations can upgrade it. It carries a longer range, better attack, and is more durable than the Carrack. English Caravels use a different projectile, which travels faster, thus giving a greater degree of accuracy.

Technical Data[edit | edit source]
Regular Carracks and Caravels use projectile ID 374, a slow-traveling cannonball. English cannon galleons, however, use projectile ID 767, the same one used by an editor-only unit called the Turtle Ship. This is a slow ship with 6 range that is a unique unit in the parent game, Age of Empires II. (Editor-only units will have their own pages in the coming weeks.)
