Resistances are the value that reduces incoming damage from enemy attacks. There are six kinds of different resistances plus one additional resistance type for buildings.

Sword defense Protection from swords and knives SW
Pike defense Protection from pikes and lances PK
Arrow defense Protection from arrows AW
Fire Weapon defense Protection from gun and rifle fire FW
Cannon defense Protection from artillery fire CN

Most units are able to upgrade their melee combat resistances (AW & PK) with the chain upgrades: conducting a physical training or alternatively, conduct a riding drill.

Some special technologies like conduct a parade are also able to raise ranged resistances but are the exception.
