Strategy Edit

Catapults have a very long range and a high attack making them excellent building-killers. A small group will destroy a building in seconds and their long range prevents units from counter-attacking easily. They are also deadly against ships, dealing bonus damage to them. However they should still be escorted by other units as they still have low hack armor and are slow leaving them vulnerable to cavalry. To remedy this, Ra and Isis players can worship Hathor in the Heroic Age and train Rocs to transport catapults more quickly around the map.

History Edit

"Catapults were invented by the Greeks for use as artillery on the battlefield or during a siege. By creating tension by pulling back large bow-like arms or twisting cordage made of hides or hair, a great throwing force could be achieved. Catapults could throw a stone weighing over 10 pounds to a range of nearly 1500 feet."
