Phalanxes are Swordsmen with much bigger shields. This allows them to have a higher defence, although with a slower movement speed.

Although their much bigger defense may seem useless, they can take damage as effectively double their Swordsman equivalent, as the only units with greater than 5 attack can one-shot them; usually Gladii (Unit), Cavalry and Artillery. All other units will have to outnumber the Phalanx 2:1 to defeat them.

Phalanx have the same attack stats of swordsman, but their defense is much higher. Their speed though is only around half of a Swordsman. They are best used to garrison a settlement, or a tile. It's usually a good idea to pre-garrison a city as if an attack is sent, you may not have enough time to get them to where they need to be. Sniper units such as Archers are a great addition to these units and make for an undefeatable defence.

They become obsolete in the Renaissance Age.
