The Mercenary Cavalry is a powerful cavalry unit available to the Egyptians. They are trained from the Town Center and only last for about 40 seconds. Worshiping Hathor in the Heroic Age will provide 30 more seconds. They are typically usually used as a quick response defense force due to their limited lifespan.
They can take on most units but are still somewhat vulnerable to infantry. They are an effective way of defending a town if the player's forces are elsewhere or have been defeated. They are trained almost instantly allowing them to be massed quickly. However they are quite expensive and training a lot of them can set the player back quite a bit.
