CanFortify units get their fortify defence bonus automatically when in cities,
regardless of what they're doing. I somehow hadn't twigged that this was tied
to the CanFortify flag; it became apparent when reviewing patch #3672.
The built-in help has this to say on the subject:
In individual unit help:
* May fortify, granting a 50% defensive bonus.
Could helpfully point out that this happens automatically in cities.
In helpdata.txt, section "Combat" ("Default Combat Rules"):
- If the defender is a land unit, and is either fortified or inside a city,
its strength is multiplied by 1.5.
All of this text is flagged as being for the default ruleset, so it's more
