Elite Eagle Warriors are often the main unit in a Meso-American army. Having the highest Pierce Armor and fastest movement speed of all Infantry class units, they are ideal for raiding and countering archer units. With their bonus damage to Cavalry, they are still exceptional versus mounted units if they can gain a number advantage. While expensive, Elite Eagle Warriors can be trained rapidly and overwhelm an unprepared enemy. Great for killing siege units as well.
