1 - With our huge cashflow, I would push for upgrades to Pikemen, and push for horsemen to be built, for upgrades to knights when we learn Chivalry. The warriors are still good for escorts, and Interior garrisons. 2 - Babylon, since they're our neighbor. The other continent is of no threat as of yet, since they can't cross the ocean. Once Persia acquires Astronomy, though, they will become more of a threat. Egypt isn't much of a threat militarily, as the AI can't handle land invasions well, but they'remore of a culture threat, though not as great as Babylon. 3. Not at the moment. First, we'd need to build up our forces, AND build up our infrastructure. During the Babylonian War, we were still on the weak side in terms of infrastructure. Having 30 knights doesn't help when you can only produce 1 knight per turnchat (10 turns). 4. I'd focus more on Babylon. I would have the warriors upgraded, and have the swords head towards the Egyptian colonies. The last Babylonian stack started to come from our south. I'd also like to see some catapults start to be in construction so that we can bombard any stack that approaches. My first goal in the Babylonian campaign would be the 2 cities closest to our future FP site. I would only take interior Babylonian cities if we were strong enough (i.e., Babylon isn't putting up much of a counter attack). With Egypt, I'd have gallies set up as "Sentries" to watch for incoming Egyptians. I'd also have 2-3 fast units (knights), and a few swords on hand to provide any needed defense in the north. (Remember that the AI can't handle naval invasions well). 5. Cavalry-type units. Second would be artillery, and then Infantry. We need knights. Currently, Knights will have the defense of a pikeman, and they are faster than catapults. Once we head into the Age of Gunpowder, Musketeers will be important (with one catch. They *WILL* start our Golden Age!). This is where you start to have Muskets for defense of the knight stack, and attack from the shortest possible route. I would incourage governors to build catapults, especially for cannon upgrades, should we get there next term. I'd also push for city walls in our border cities, just in case Babylon decides to attack again. The first pikes will be in border cities, like Mure, Acheron, Mr. Roger's Neighborhood. 6. Logistics. That is, War Infrastructure. Before we can have a successful army, we need one that won't feed off of economic-based upgrades. The next is a mobile army. Knights.
