    I have a question for everybody that likes conquest victories. Whats your favorite unit? Mine is the Spearman, whenever guarding, and ( 50% chance ) attacking, they REALLY slaughter your opponents. By the way, its my avatar!:)

    It's the Immortal hands down for me. I have liked using the Sipahis since getting Complete but I played so many Persian games that the Immos really represent Civ III for me.

    For a pure safety play especially useful when no resources are available - Numidian Mercenary. Archers that defend at 3, w/ some arty of course, when no iron or horses are available gets nasty. #2 choice - Mounted Warrior #3 Immortal

    First - nice to see a fellow yinzer on the site.

    Are you asking for non-UU's? If so - it would have to be the modern armor, hands down. Three attacks, baby - but sadly, it's a late-game acquisition.

    For UU's, it's the Maya javelin thrower, and it comes early.

    Never thought I'd see "yinzer" in a Civ forum.

    If you're excluding the UUs I gotta go with arty. Once I have it, the game is won.

    I'm going to go with Cavalry. For me, getting Military Tradition means it's time to go bang some heads together. :hammer:

    I'll second the notion for Cavalry! Good for both speed and attacking, and has a pretty good longevity too.

    modern armor.

    this may be because i've only ever seen them in my games a handful of times.

    they make such nice armies :)

    swordsman - early attack unit. you can always bet someone on the map doesn't have access to iron :lol: thats who gets pummeled by a stack on swordsmen parading through their territory :goodjob:
    seeing that i have iron w/in my reach is so reassuring.

    Definitely Swordsmen and/or the unique units that replace them. :D

    In my current game as Rome I have no Iron so I'm mounting a huge archer rush at the Zulu's to claim theirs.

    I'm partial to some of the fast movers. It's really a tough call between the Chinese Rider, the Conquistador (really! They're just fun. One of these days I need a Conquistador army) and Ancient Cavalry.

    Though I probably should not have answered because I don't really like conquest victories. :)

    For me its just regular old Tanks. They come on so nicely after the long stalemate when the best defensive unit is the infantry. Its nice to stop having to bombard the enemy cities into the stone age before attacking again, the tanks seem like magic.

    The MARINE. The unit is simply bad ass on maps with much water. I love to use them to gain a foothold on a new land mass. Once I have that beach head city, the floodgates are open for a blitzkrieg.
