    Hi,
    I'm playing a game and Dido just declared war and strolled up to my border with a 3 Winged Hussars. I though this was a Polish UU. I'm super confused, I'm playing pangea and I can't see a good chunk of the map but I don't believe that Poland is even in the game.
    Is there a way she was able to acquire these units. I have all the EPs if that makes a difference.
    Thanks!

    The only way to explain this could be the Polish Hussars units are from military CS. Gifted

    It happened to me receiving a couple of english Longbowmen UU from a MCS (was nice :crazyeye:)

    When certain Civs are NOT in game then certain City states will gift the missing Civ's UU.

    If you hover your mouse over where it say "trait: militaristic" the tool-tip will tell you if they gift unique units and what it is. If you finish the Patronage tree CS will sometimes gift you great people, one of which may be a Khan.

    Winged Hussars aren't too bad, either. The retreat thing seriously adds to your tactical options. You just have to be careful not to get your Hussar killed because you didn't remember they are going to advance when the other unit retreats.

    I've also seen a few threads where someone received a GMOV from a CS.
