They are one of the most versatile and powerful cavalry units in the game as they have decent attack, high hitpoints, very fast speed, decent armor (their original armor is 0/0 but the Indians' civilization bonus gives them 0+1/0+1 armor from the very beginning) and are cheaper than Knights. Due to the Indian team bonus they also have +5 attack vs. building making them good against buildings. They can easily kill Paladins in one on one fight and can defeat War Elephants in groups.
As the Indians lack any unit from the Knight line, Camels are a vital part of their armies for a fast, yet fairly resilient unit. They can be used as cannon folder for weaker units while still being able to slaughter archers and cavalry. However they are not as effective against Cataphracts, who are for the most part immune to the bonus damage from Camels.
It is a well-rounded unit and is able to handle almost any unit, but while they can defeat even Halberdiers, it is not advisable to send them against a group of any kind of Pikemen because they can deal heavy damage even without defeating the camel force.
- They use the same icon as a Heavy Camel.
