Orange Star City

City is a type of building. They are crucial in every battle and appear in almost every map in the game. They provide War Funds per turn, as well as repair and refuel your land units.

Cities are also a type of terrain, offering 3-star defensive cover for units and like all buildings, do not inhibit movement for any unit. Allied cities will also refill rounds and fuel for free, as well as replenishing 2 HP though at a cost, to those units.

In Fog of War, buildings do not show the color of their owner unless in vision of your units. A player must especially keep this in mind for cities as they are usually the most abundant building as well as being heavily fought over. It is a significant advantage if you can predict which cities your opponent could have captured when temporarily repelled from a part of the map. It also provides you a way to make a rough estimate of your enemy's income per day.

During the first 3 games in the Advance Wars series, cities will only provide vision for the tile that city is situated on. In Advance Wars: Days of Ruin, cities, like all properties, allow you to see up to 2 squares away.
