Fire Dragons are the children of Arkath, the Dragon of Fire and patron god of the Dwarves. Like their distant relatives the Black Dragons, these majestic creatures can attack their enemies with their fiery breath, and they respond to enemy attacks with splashes of Phoenix-like fire. The Fire Dragons themselves, of course, are immune to Fire.OffBck

The fire dragon is the seventh-level creature of the Fortress in the Heroes of Might and Magic V expansion, Hammers of Fate.

The fire dragon is the most powerful unit of the Fortress faction, and will inflict great fire damage on the enemy both when it attacks and is attacked, but since it lacks the ability to fly or teleport, has no ranged attack, and cannot attack fortifications, it's not very useful in sieges.
