Speed, Ranged Attack, and assault capabilities make the Chariot an effective Ancient Age unit. Better suited to field combat than city assaults, the Chariot is an ideal unit to accompany Light Cavalry, or to round out your seige armies. Be aware, though, that Chariots are at a disadvantage when faced with other mounted units.
The earliest armies of the ancient age used chariots to conduct high speed attacks during battle. Chariots, however, were expensive, hard to maintain, and useless on broken terrain. The Mounted Archer proved to be a much more effective means of providing mobile firepower.
