|Unit Information||Game Strategies||History|
The Camel Archer is the Nubian unique Ranged Cavalry of the Classical Age. Like all cavalry, it is trained and upgraded at the Stable, and requires the research of Military 2 (Mercenaries) to become avaliable. It replaces the standard Horse Archer.
Compared to Horse Archers, Camel Archers have the same basic stats, but possess a 35% damage bonus against Light Infantry and a 20% damage bonus against Gunpowder Infantry, so the innate ability of Ranged Cavalry as raiders combined with this advantage makes Camel Archer great counter-raiders as well. As with all other animal-borne cavalry units, the Camel Archer can garrison inside Forts, but not inside Towers.
Unit Costs Edit
Unit production cost increases progressively with every Stable unit on the field or currently in production. The default increase is of 1 Timber and 1 Wealth for the second unit created, and grows exponentially from then on. Upgrading this unit costs double the base cost of the unit it will upgrade to; this means that the upgrade to Heavy Camel Archer has a cost of 120 Timber, 80 Wealth. It's important to note, however, that these prices are the default standard, and actual production and upgrading costs may differ, depending on researched technologies/ages, connected rare resources, or adopted governments.
