|Unit Information||Game Strategies||History|
The Light Camel is the Egyptian unique Light Cavalry of the Classical Age. Like all cavalry of the age, it is trained and upgraded at the Stable, and is avaliable to recruit as soon as the age is reached, as long and a Stable is built (Which requires Military 1: The Art of War). It replaces the standard Light Horse.
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 Food and 1 Timber for the second unit created, increasing further with every new unit until the cost cap is reached, which for military units is +125% of their original base value. Upgrading this unit costs double the base cost of the unit it will upgrade to; this means that the upgrade to Camel Warrior has a cost of 120 Food, 80 Timber. 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.
- Despite being numerous today and iconic of the land, camels were rarely seen animal in ancient Egypt, not even domesticated for most of its history. The donkey as a means of transportation until foreign conquest brought camels in larger numbers, being commonly employed in this manner as early as the Persian dominion, during the twilight period of ancient Egypt.
