Landplacker (Civ4 FFH)
This unit is faster and better at withdrawing than the one it replaces. This is a fast military unit; it is best for pillaging, and moderately good at offense.
Brigands are experienced Raiders, and are often found leading small squads of Hippus raiders deep into the territory of their enemy--whoever it happens to be at the moment. With unmatched mobility, they can pillage a village or untended resource and return home before the victory feast.
Use Brigands as you would your Raiders--for pillaging, picking off lone enemies, or utilizing their above average withdrawal to soften up entrenched city defenders.
