    How big is your army?

    What level are you playing at?

    If you are playing at a harder level, I wouldn't trust them. Wait: these are the Indians right? Don't trust them at all. I was just playing a game last night and they creamed me. Ugh.

    If your army is big, I say you suprise attack them. If that were their territory that they were patrolling through, I wouldn't worry about it, but since they are in someone else's territory, right by yours, they may be trying to attack you. (Or are they at war with that other player?)

    Are Indians at war with someone?
    Do they have MPP with USA, Arabs, EU, Iraq, Israel or Russia?

    That's actually not *that* bad! I had like an uber long game going on Diety level, and I had a stack of 47 modern armors sitting outside of one of my cities from the Ottomans. Guess they wanted to say Hello.


    I should of gotten a SS of that.

    Also in that game, way off topic, the Ottomans actually used helicoptors to attack me!!!! I was so happy so see them! I never saw the AI use helicoptors the right way, they usually drop off like one unit which is a waste IMO. During this battle they were droping off quads of TOWs.

    yeah, the AI seems to like using TOWs now, mostly because of their defensive bombard. Anyway, I'd just protect my cities really well with that stack, and watch where it goes. If it seems to favor one of your cities, or is making a beeline for a resource, watch out. If they AI is going to pillage a resource, it'll look for a different one if you defend it, and then head back to that one if you remove that unit. (It probably has a resource priority list - pillage iron first, then horses, etc.).

    Hmm, when I played that scenario, India sent its troops straight to Russia. My guess is that's where they're going.

    India is not at war with anyone else and there are also a stack of Arabain tanks and Iranian infantary nearby.
    Also I am in anarchy and I lack aluminum, oil, and rubber.

    Edit: This is my army http://www.civfanatics.net/uploads6/Army.JPG

    Well, India has the lowest agression, but it could still surprise attack you. Bring some troops into the area.

    BTW, What scenario are you playing? Iraq and Israel?
