Effect Cataphracts cause trample damage, +6 attack vs infantry

Logistica is a technology in Age of Empires II: The Conquerors that is unique to the Byzantines and can be researched at the Castle once the Imperial Age is reached. Once researched, it gives trample damage in a 0.5 tile radius to Cataphracts (attack bonus +5) and increases their attack bonus against infantry by +6.

Strategy Edit

With Logistica, Cataphracts will excel in melee combat since they will slay infantry even more easily, and the trample damage bonus helps them out when facing mobs of infantry or other melee units. However, the Halberdier still remains a threat even to Cataphracts, and mass battles against them should be avoided.

Logistica does not affect heroes with the appearance of a Cataphract such as Attila the Hun and Belisarius.

Team Bonuses Edit

  • A team containing Berbers: With Kasbah researched, researching Logistica is 25% faster.

History Edit

The Byzantine civilization outlived its counterpart in Rome for more than one thousand years, mainly through the adroit employment of smaller elite armies against more lightly equipped or less highly trained enemies. Well-motivated troops, well-trained officers, strong military traditions, and sound military logistics combined to create armies with fighting power disproportionate to their size. The backbone of their armies were their cataphract cavalry who could engage enemies at a distance with archery or trample them down in a charge.
