Scythed wheels whirring menacingly. Huge, furious warhorses in front. Men with spears, javelins and arrows on the platform behind. The heavily armoured chariot gleaming in the sunlight. Banners fluttering in the wind. Is it any wonder the war chariot inspires awe? But more than being an expression of wealth and power, the war chariot is a fast, murderous behemoth of a war-engine. The sharp scythes will cut to ribbons those that are not trampled by the horses. Its speed, stability, and strength make the war chariot ideal for hunting down and annihilating squads of archers, but its usefulness as a multi-purpose weapon should not be underestimated.
