Greetings! Today I will covering the stats and availability of the Timurid Empire's roster in Roar of Conquest, overhaul mod of Medieval II. This article should help those who are curious to have a better understanding of how the Timurid's roster will perform in battle and when certain units will become available in the campaign.

Note: The stats you see here have been updated for Roar of Conquest: The Late Middle Ages VIII. Now onto the details!


The Timurid Empire

The Timurid Empire is a diverse conglomeration of many different cultures and people, and their roster reflects that fact. From Mongolian cavalry to Indian war elephants to repeater crossbowmen, all these units come together to form the Timurid's military. Their strength lies in their cavalry and elephants; use them wisely, and they will bring you victory in battle! For reference, the unit sizes I will be listing here are when the game is put on 'ultra unit size', Secondary Melee Attack represents the secondary weapon cavalry units use after completing a charge, and the acronym AP stands for armor-piercing. You are the heir of Genghis Khan; let the world tremble at your coming!
