The Nimitzern

The Nimitzern will be the next and 11th Tier 8 unit of the Crimson Hand Battalion to be released.  It is an Infantry unit with base Strength of 1200 and comes fully upgraded with 1440 Strength--the same as for the Beacon and higher than that of the other nine existing Tier 8 units.  The Nimitzern's item code is UM71.

Note that the image contains a new green icon showing a sword in front of a shield.  This represents a new, 6th upgrade.  This Shield upgrade seems to protect a unit from a single hit.  Tier 8 units come fully upgraded, so they automatically get this Shield upgrade.  The new upgrade is also available for purchase with Empire Points for almost all other units.

The Nimitzern is the strongest Infantry unit in Empires & Allies now, being the same Tier as the Artemis but having 33.3% higher Strength.

The Nimitzern was officially released on May 26, 2012 (depending on your time zone.)
