Units of Egypt


Peasants
Attack: 3
Defense: 3

Price: 120
Combat bonus in deserts
Poor morale
Can sap
Most basic unit of all. However, it's useful if you want to "transfer population" from one settlement to another (Show me How). Desert peasants are tougher.

Price: 230
Can form phalanx
Combat bonus in deserts
Poor morale
Bonus vs. cavalry

The Nubian Spearmen are like the roman Town Watch - very useful outside of the battlefield, when you need someone to guard a town (leave at least 4 regiments of Nubian Spearmen, they'll be okay), or on the battlefield, when you need to distract an enemy group, lure them into a trap or something.

Very good infantry, should be your main one, together with some good spearmen like the Nile Spearmen and the Pharaoh's Guards. Actually it can take out even Cataphracts.

The renowned Egyptian Chariots also can be fitted with good archers, and they then become a terrible pair with the latter, causing their ennemies to flee in panic.

The last attribute is totally unjust. These machines are priceless whe taking cities because they are able from a safe position to devastate enemy forces which are behind the walls, leading to panic. With luck and skill you can exterminate half the enemy army before going in.
