In our ruleset we have a Balloon unit. It sees far but sees far - they are usually placed behind the front line to see to the enemy territory or to guard some trait or uninhabited part of ones country.

It has "CanFortify" flag for usability reasons - one can fortify it to watch the area and it doesn't bother user by waking up every turn or every time it sees enemy movement as "sentry" would do.

I had forgotten that and noticing it again from helptext "...granting 50% defense bonus..." it seemed like a bug to us at first.

Attached patch changes helptext to read "Can fortify to stay put." for units that have no defense value at all, and thus do not benefit from the bonus.
