The cataphract is an uncommon unit, and only these civilizations can train them:
- Macedonian Cataphracts have +2 line of sight.
- Yamato Cataphracts cost 25% less.
While a somewhat handy unit just by itself, the cost of the upgrade is so ridiculously high that many players find it pointless to research, as it generally does not pay off. In Death Matches Cataphracts are considered to be a good way for non-chariot civilizations to take on Catapults.
- Metalworking: Increases attack by 2 points.
- Scale Armor: Increases armor by 2 points.
- Nobility: Increases hit points by 15%.
