The Medjay is Egypt's unique unit, which unlocks at Bronze Working. This unit can be built as either a Melee (30 Strength, 2 Speed, 90 Production) unit or a Heavy Cavalry unit (mounted on a Chariot, 35 STR, 3 Speed, 130 Production), and gains a combat boost when fighting inside or adjacent to Egypt's borders (+4 Strength). Unmounted Medjay can also inflict a bleeding wound on enemies they strike, preventing them from healing for two turns.
I like the Medjay being a unique unit with a homeland bonus; but what is the specific historic basis for the bleeding wound ability? I like it mechanically; I'm just wondering why it'd be a bonus for the Medjay -- did they stab particularly hard, or something...?
