Aluminum is an Atomic Era Strategic Resource in Civilization VI. It is revealed with Radio.

Aluminum is found in Deserts, Desert (Hills), Plains and Rainforests.

Strategy Edit

Aluminum is required for most air units in the game, with the exception of the most basic one (the Biplane). The resource itself is fairly common. It provides a nice boost in Civ6Production Production (though not as large as Oil (Civ6) Oil and Coal (Civ6) Coal), but this is thanks to its improvement, not the resource itself. Aluminum's bonus yield is Civ6Science Science, which at the moment of the game the resource appears is hardly useful.

In the Gathering Storm expansion, Aluminum - besides being used to train and maintain aircraft - is also indispensable for the reworked Scientific Victory, as it is used to build the Lagrange Laser Station.

Civilopedia entry Edit

The Greeks and Romans used aluminum salts as astringents and bath powders. For centuries, that’s all aluminum was good for, until in 1825 AD the Danish chemist Hans Orsted managed to create a lump of aluminum metal. In the 1850s, pure aluminum was so difficult to produce that bars of it were more valuable than gold and even exhibited as a curiosity at the Exposition Universelle in 1855. Scientists, of course, just had to find uses for it, and now aluminum is found in everything from spacecraft to skillets.
