Iron is one of the six resources in Cossacks 3.
Background[edit | edit source]
Iron and coal are required for your rifles , cannon, ships and towers to fire. You will require a certain amount of iron and coal for each shot. Thorough military actions will result in a great loss of these resources. If you run out of any of them, your shooting units, artillery and towers will be unable to fir e and will become easy targets for enemy troops. Iron and coal are also required to research new technology, make upgrades and construct certain types of troops.
Procurement[edit | edit source]
Iron, coal and gold are mined at deposits, identified by a large icon over the deposit (a fissure in the ground). You need to build a mine to excavate it. Mines can also be upgraded to increase their output � useful, as only five workers can be assigned per mine.
Strategies[edit | edit source]
Universally useful resource, required for fielding pretty much any army that doesn't hope to defeat the enemy through drowning them in corpses.
