    Yep. Some people say the march promotion is more fluff than effective. I don't know what they are talking about, I remember March literally saving my ass on a number of occasions

    Ancient - Horse Archer, ancient era version of keshiks, that however can't move after attacking, BUT in it's era it is crazy powerhouse.

    Classical - Legion, if i have horse archer, i don't really need horseman replacement to my team, legion is good tanking unit.

    Medieval - Chu-Ko-Nu, double attack, double xp, nuff said.

    Renaissance - Janissary, would be nice to upgrade Legions into longswords and then janissaries.

    Industrial - Carolean, because janissary's heal bonus and carolean's march promotion = powerhouse

    Modern - Foreing legion, read my Industrial era's choice, and also add bonus when outside of my territory = UNBEATABLE :king:

    Ancient: Even though it wasn't offered, I'm choosing the Khan as my Ancient era unit. A civilian medic unit that buffs the strength of nearby units? Yes please.

    Classical: Mohawk Warrior, simply as a resourceless way to upgrade my Warriors.

    Medieval: Keshik, although I do wonder how useful Keshiks are with only 4 movement.

    Renaissance: Janissary.

    Industrial: Carolean.

    Modern: B17.

    - Battering Ram - because if you get a hut to upgrade a warrior to a ram, you can tear through your neighbors liek nobody's business


    CLASSICAL
    - Mohawk Warrior - The only real competition in the era is the Legion, but I'll go with the MW because it's resourceless and carries its upgrades to the next level

    MEDIEVAL
    - Conquistador - THere is a lot of good UUs in this era, but I'll go with my game favorite here. I love love love using it to settle cities

    RENAISSANCE
    - Janissary - THe self-healing beast

    INDUSTRIAL
    - Carolean - Another self-healing beast

    MODERN/ATOMIC
    - Foreign Legion - Very useful for late-game offense
