So, no information as been let out in interviews about the navies of any of the new civs, but screenshots are plentiful:

JAPANESE NAVY

^We see the giant fortress ship and Japanese dragon ship. The smaller boat is possibly the equivalent to a Japanese caravel.

http://www.agecommunity.com/images/AsianDynasties/screen001_1024.jpg
^ We see two other small Japanese craft here

CHINESE NAVY

^ Small assortment of small Chinese ships

^ We see somemore small ships and the Chinese fishing boat (man on raft)

It wouldn't, and it won't, but imo navy is the least exciting thing about the Y pack.

^ Ok, I realized the other two links didn't work, and the pictures are hard to find. Anyway (ON THE THIRD SCREENSHOT PAGE), the 3rd to last picture has the assorted Chinese boats and fishing raft. The 2nd to last picture has the large Chinese ship.

I also don't see why this would be closed. Anyway, I like using navies, so that is why I'm excited about it.

NOTE: In the trailer, it shows very quickly a demolition ship blowing up as it rams a ship. This leads me to think that the Chinese or Japanese will get some sort of demolition ship.

In fact, the small japanese craft and the small chinese ships are the same.

What if the boat given to the Spanish is the equivilant of a canoe? When you ally with natives, you can build canoes from your dock. Could something similar be true for Asian minor civs?

Turtle Ships, if you ally with Korea... if they're even added. Otherwise, no, I don't think so.

Could be, but not this ship. It has a random name, like Pera or Sea Falcon or Victory or Concepcion or Union or any other random ship name. The spanish are the default editor civ, and player 1 is the default player one name. It's just a test, and I doubt that Asian canoe type ships will be as big as caravels.

So, do you guys think the Asian navies will be able to stand up to the European?

I imagine the Asian frigate will be more than a match for the European frigate. Also, the dragon ship looks like it could dish out some serious damage.

QUESTION: How come there is NOTHING about India's navy? Not even as much as a single screenshot of their ships has been released.

Same question was asked about Natives before TWC came out.

Because their ships are too pretty to release pictures of yet? Or, instead of ships, they get whales to float on.

Perhaps they retooled the elephant yet again?

I think ES did an excellent job of balancing the navies in TWC. I think they will be equal, but a little different.

Of course they will. If they didn't, they would be the most UP civ in the game (not really, but still). Nobody thinks of navy as important, but in reality that is only so because navies (mostly) balance out, ships are expensive, and water isn't the easiest way to get soldiers to the enemy camp. But if the Indians had no navy, a) they couldn't fish, b) they couldn't prevent enemy fishing, and c) they would have no way to stop enemies from just plopping down soldiers right next to their base on maps like Carolina and New England.

and they would be forced to wait for there foe to come to them and were incapable of defeating him on maps like carib. :P

to me it seams that the asians have some very small ships: the caravel is bigger than this longish(i don't think this is good english maybe no english at all) chinese boats and the japanese light ships you know those with the circle on there sail.

Well, I know that ES will balance them. What I'm saying is, will the Japanese and Chinese frigates be more or less powerful than the European counterpart?

ES said that the Asians will be balanced by BHG, I believe.

Why? They only can't gather from cows and (possibly) other herdables.

They can farm and get berries if they need to. Still, it is unpractical to think that India wouldn't have some sort of navy.

They can also hunt...... it is the Japanese that can't hunt.
Obviously they HAVE to have a navy (or they would be impossible to win with on some maps).
