    Military Ground Units

    UNIT Scientific Advance COST Attack/Defense Strength Movement Comments/Special
    Warriors None 10 1/1 1 This Unit is basically useless, Only use if nothing better is available.
    Phalanx Bronze Working 20 1/2 1 This unit is best used for Defending cities.
    Archers Warrior Code 30 3/2 1 None
    Legion Iron Working 40 4/2 1 Well, the Romans used them to conquer all of Europe.
    Horse- men Horseback Riding 20 2/1 2 use for EARLY attacks on near-by neighbors.
    Pikemen Feudalism 20 1/2(4) 1 Better than the Phalanx because it's defense strength is *2 against attackers on horseback.
    Chariot The Wheel 30 3/1 2 Good if the enemy is far away because it's faster than Legions.
    Elephant Polytheism 40 4/1 2 Even better than the chariot, but still weaker than Legions.
    Catapult Mathematics 40 6/1 1 Slow, expensive, easy to kill, but great if you've got a blockaded city your legions just can't get.

    Artillery Machine Tools 50 10/1 1 Same as Cannon.
    Armor Mobile Warfare 80 10/5 3 used mostly for invading, use Mechanized Infantry to defend
    Mechanized Infantry Labor Union 50 6/6 3 used mostly for defense.
