    Is there any chance some kind of mounted units could be added in the world campaign? They were often used in Russia and East Africa (for actual attacks, not just scouting), though it's rarely mentioned.

    If it's accurate, yes. I don't know if Civ 4 has some unit limit, but both sides used vastly different troops and equipment in East and North Africa.

    There was only one camel unit involved in WW2 that I know of, the British Somalia Camel Corps: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Somaliland_Camel_Corps

    They participated in helping to stop the invasion of British Somalia. The unit was disbanded in 1943.

    Not exactly within the scope of this mod. :)

    The Italians and British both used camel (and horse) units in East Africa, not surprising as Somalia is the camel capital of the world. See Gruppo Bande Amhara.

    Horse units were also widely used by most of the major powers, not just Poland as many claim, primarily in Africa and Russia.
