Modern Infantry Status: Released! Version 1 Steam Workshop The Mechanized Infantry unit has a couple of cool-looking modern infantrymen flanking the main APC/IFV unit. Ever since Civ3 I've wanted the late game military not to lose its humanity and become entirely vehicle-based. Civ6 does the job, partially, with the inclusion of Modern AT, Spec Ops and the presence of those two guys in the Mech Inf formation. But I felt that wasn't enough. So I took those guys and made a full formation with them. Being a second Melee unit in the Information Era, butting into the Mech-Armor-AT triad, the question was how to make it worthy and distinct. So here's my attempt at a "light" type of modern infantry with a couple of quirks in addition to being resourceless and cheaper than the later Mechanized Infantry unit. MODERN INFANTRY Unit Promotion Class: Recon Hybrid Base Cost: 620 Production Maintenance: 7 Gold Required Tech: Synthetic Materials Atomic era melee unit. +5 Combat Strength in Hills, Woods and Rainforest terrain. Melee Strength: 80 Movement: 3 PROMOTION TREE: RECON HYBRID Tier I: Ranger, Alpine Tier II: Commando, Amphibious Tier III: Hardened, Urban Warfare Tier IV: Elite Guard NOTES It's a Recon/Melee hybrid, since I figured the extra mobility in rough terrain would make sense. The +20 Combat Strength Ambush promotion of the Recon tree would've been overpowered in this context, so it was reduced via a milder alternative, Hardened (+10). Maintenance is on par with Atomic era units, 1 less than Information era units. With Synthetic Materials, it's unlocked alongside the Helicopter, on the cusp of the next era. Production-wise, it's between Modern AT (+40) and the Helicopter (+20), and Mechanized Infantry (-30). Tangentially, Mechanized Infantry gets a movement buff (from 3 to 4) so it can keep up with tanks (that's the idea of the general concept, after all), and to set it further apart from regular Modern Infantry.
