These raiders and pirates dominate the military stage of Eastern Arabia around Gerrha and historical Oman. In nature, they are pirates able to conduct warfare in the desert as light infantry.

Description

These raiders and pirates dominate the military stage of Eastern Arabia around Gerrha and historical Oman. In nature, they are light infantry equipped with padded armour worn over their dishdasha tunics, giving them some protection against arrow-fire. They carry shields made of wicker, osier and reed as well as that of hides and leather. They are swift, agile and their spears give them some edge over light cavalry. As they are more accustomed to the hot climate, these pirates and raiders make excellent desert warriors, albeit they are neither very disciplined or formally trained; Their loyalty is only a measure of the wages ordained by their paymaster.

Historically, the area around historical Gerrha and Oman, (Called "Mâzûn", by the subsequent Parthians and the Sassanians who came to dominate the political scene around the entire Persian Gulf) bolstered such warriors in an environment that demanded skill in naval trade and a tough bulwark adept in desert warfare. The natives of Gerrha were heavily influenced by Chaldaeans who were said to have built the city of Gerrha "entirely on blocks and slabs of salt" while the natives of Oman were more influenced by the Iranians over the strait of Hôrmûz. These Arabians were proficient in trading and in sea-faring, extending their influence as far as Dravidia in southern India, rivaling against the Nabataean Arabs to the west. It would be these Arabs who later became the stock of the later Lakhmid (Muntherid) dynasts, the powerful vassals of the Sassanians, marking a boundary between the sedentary and cosmopolitan Arabs and those who still adhered to nomadic principles.

Usage

These men are surprisingly versatile infantry despite their shabby appearance may deceive. These men are capable of fighting against light cavalry and with their speed and stamina outrun before attacking with their swords. These men are excellent flanking infantry and they will defeat most archers and skirmishers in combat.

They can also be used as front-line spearmen provided there is a general near them as they have low morale. All-in-all a useful unit capable of many tasks.

In EB2, they only have their spears and while still no match for heavy infantry, they are able to fight against light infantry and cavalry with much better results compared to the Sabean levy spearmen.
