The Philistines represent the dominant force of Canaan, men from across the sea with great wealth, superior technology, and a hatred of the less docile Semitic tribes.
These are a coastal people, moving strong armies here and there on a whim, crushing resistance before it can organize.
A raiding army composed primarily of armored infantry, some missile-chariots, and small numbers of greeklike guards.
Possible units include Philistine Spearmen, Light Chariots, Dendra Spearmen, and iron-shield infantry (still pre-iron).
Still thinking :
Later units will reflect a tendency towards land armies and away from the coast, with good scale armor and larger, more mobile forces.
More to come.
