Upgrade of Light Chariot. Has more HP and one grade of armour, and wields composite bows. Still not as fast as the cav units of some civs though, but still very effective as chariots go.
- Slower to move, but tougher.
- Better range and rate of fire.
Medium Chariots appear for a fair number of Middle Eastern factions - most notably the Hittites, Assur, Indians, Shang and Zhou.
