    Most mods I've seen have the Maccabee as a UU, I've seen Merkava tanks as a 2nd in some as well. I am wondering what would be best and the most iconic units to represent Israel. Any opinions/ideas?

    I'm using the Slinger myself. A cheaper Archer replacement.

    The difficulty is that Israel the political entity didn't exist for a long time. We certainly can't use a Medieval, Renaissance, or Industrial UU for them.

    The Ancient Era has the Maccabee and the Slinger, while in the Modern Era we have, among others, the Merkava and the Palmach.

    The non-existent as a political entity point was why I used Crusader, Ottoman, and Palestinian units in my own Israelite civ.

    I agree about the Maccabee, though the Slinger isn't exactly unique. Maybe a Great Prophet UU? :confused:

    A Moses unit that causes collateral damage to every unit in a stack!
