Infantry are especially good for defending cities as they have max defence of 6 if no strategy is used. They have a good travel distance with a range of 6, however they are not very stong attackers with an attack of 4. Their main purpose in the game is to defend; as they are very cheap, it is recommended to get many of these in your capital.

Infantry can form defence lines, which can be useful in delaying enemy forces. Some atwar players use Infantry as attack due to their cheapness. Despite having only half the amount of attack a tank does, infantry are nearly half as expensive as a tank and massed up armies of infantry are not to be dealed with lightly, as attacking infantry armies will be costly, forcing a defense against infantry armies to be the better option than an attack at times.
