Tropico Wiki

Infantry is a type of military squad in Tropico 5.

They are Tropico's main standing army, they're the successors of the Colonial Infantry in its role: to serve and protect the Fatherland.

These soldiers garrison structures like Barracks, Army Bases and upgraded Guard Towers. They form squads in the former, form armored brigades in the second and man machine guns emplacements in the latter, respectively. They can also replace the musketeers of any Military Fort.
