Armies are a gameplay mechanic in Age of Civilizations 2 and its predecessor. Armies are numbers that will appear on each province, representing how many armies are in there. Armies can be recruited for 5 times the amount of army units being recruited, and will appear next turn, and cost Movement Points. Armies can also be conscripted, which doubles the cost but makes them immediately available to action and disbanded, which both cost movement points. When the player is at war with another civilisation, a battle interface will be displayed when armies meet, in the same province. Each province has a defense bonus, and the army with the better odds will win and the opposing army will be destroyed, unless circumstances destroy both armies.
