Historical Description Edit
Known as the "ships of the desert", camels have played a critical role in desert transportation and trade throughout history. They were also sometimes used for military purposes, whether carrying supplies or serving as combat mounts. Their size and speed are at least a match for any horse and they boast superior endurance in hot, arid environments.
Camels could be equipped like cataphracts, with both mount and rider completely covered in metal armor. These thundering troops posed a deadly threat to any foe. While they appear to have been more of an experiment than a regular corps, the Parthian army fielded camel cataphracts against the Romans at the Battle of Nisibis in 217 CE.
There is another unique combat advantage to camels: their smell and appearance frightens horses. As long as the camels are upwind and the horses aren't accustomed to them, camels can rout enemy cavalry without striking a blow! How skilled are you in anti-cavalry warfare?
