*: Support class units do not upgrade linearly like other classes. There are 4 separate upgrade paths:

Military Engineer Military Engineer (Civ6)

Note that the Battering Ram and Siege Tower become obsolete at Civil Engineering, while the Medic becomes available at Sanitation, which may lead to a time period without available support units (besides the Military Engineer) for construction or purchasing. Note also that the Medic and Supply Convoy do not offer any direct assistance to attacking Ancient Walls or Medieval Walls with melee units, while the Battering Ram (for ancient walls) and Siege Tower do. Although they provide no effect to cities with Urban Defenses or Renaissance Walls, they could still be of use against civilizations which do not have Steel researched and cities without Renaissance Walls constructed, so upgrade with caution.
