The Keshik is a unique unit of the Mongol civilization in Civilization III: Play the World. It replaces the Knight and requires Horses to train.

  • Special abilities:
  • Special traits:
    • Lower defense (2 vs. 3).
    • Lower Shield (Civ3) Shields cost (60 vs. 70).
    • No Iron requirement.

Strategy[]

The Keshik is cheaper to build and requires less strategic resources, needing only Horses as opposed to Horses and Iron for the unit it replaces. It also is able to travel more easily over difficult terrain like mountains and hills. Its only downside compared to the Knight is that it suffers from less defense and cannot hold positions as easily as a Knight would.

Civilopedia entry[]

The skill of a Mongol on horseback was notoriously keen. Having been taught to ride on horseback from the age of three, and by five given bow and arrows to use from horseback for hunting and war, it was a natural way for the Mongols to conduct war. The Mongol's harsh, nomadic lifestyle had prepared them well for the rigors of war; they often thrived in conditions that would be considered intolerable by any other military of its time. When the need arose Mongol horsemen could last up to ten days at a time without cooking food, during which they would sustain themselves by drinking the blood and milk of their horses.
