[AMBER] Recent Force Fields for nucleotides

Dear all,
I am currently performing molecular dynamics simulations on DNA single and
double strands in water. Unfortunately, I am using a quite old version of
both Amber and AmberTools suite, therefore I am considering buying the
latest version.

However, as a newbie, I would like to get information about the most
up-to-date force field to be used for the DNA and, in particular, if there
are any polarizable force fields to be used when simulating DNA sequences.
I have read about some recent force fields (e.g. ff12pol, even though, to
the best of my knowledge, it has not been yet implemented in Amber18), but
I have not been able to understand if they could be used only for peptydes,
or if some of them has been parametrized also for DNA.

Can you please provide me some information about the available force fields
for DNA in Amber18 and if they are polarizable?

Thanks in advance,
