Description[edit | edit source]

"Strong against enemy troops, weak against buildings. Fleet-footed ranged mercenary."

"Known as 'Peltasts,' javelineers served as skirmishers in Greek armies. They were responsible for harrassing the enemy, masking the movement of the army, and protecting the flanks of the unwieldy Greek phalanxes. Peltasts were equipped with several throwing javelins, a wicker/leather shield, and some king of close-combat weapon for when things for personal. Cheaper to arm than a Hoplite warrior, Greek javelineers were popular mercenary troops, fighting Persians and fellow Greeks according to their employers' requirements."
