Follow-up Comment #3, bug #17726 (project freeciv): Well, I'm not sure what the historical basis for units taking production (and free upkeep) is -- sketchy research on Wikipedia suggests that even ancient armies consisted in large part of paid professionals -- so I don't think we can use that.
I'd be tempted to start at the modern Riflemen/Cavalry/Artillery (so Musketeers/Dragoons/Cannon are the last "free" land units). For ships, start at Ironclad (Galleon/Frigate are "free"). All military units beyond that (including all air units) has Shield2Gold, with the notable exception of Partisans (as in current rules -- I think this is appropriate). Wrt the current experimental rules, that boils down to moving the Shield2Gold flag from Musketeers to Riflemen, and adding it to Cavalry.
