Overall strategy[edit]

Unlike common Light Chariots, Chariot Archers carry archers instead of javelin men, allowing them greater range and attack speed at the cost of firepower, but this can sometimes be worth it, as these units are then highly proficient at taking out infantry and possibly other Light Chariots armed only with javelins.
