Foundry
The Foundry is an economic building which increases the Metal output of all Mines within the Economic radius of its host city, and is also involved in the construction of specialised armoured vehicles - namely, self-propelled guns, flame tanks and anti-aircraft batteries as well as tankettes (for Italy). Two lines of technologies can be researched here.

Notes:

  • Level 3 Science and Level 1 Commerce is required to construct a Foundry
  • Unlike the Armoury and the Barracks, the Foundry is captured along with its home city.
  • The engineering savvy of the Germans and Dutch means that they can build Foundries without requiring prerequisite research.
  • The Dutch start off most games with a Foundry in their first city, meaning that they have greater access to metal accumulation much faster than others
  • The Foundry hosts vital technologies which are used in the construction of the Heavy Engineering Facility, which in turn provides the production of armoured vehicles and technologies for advanced industrial products.
