The Boers puppet Bair Dar into their empire and the Arabs make peace with Israel without any significant gains (no Jericho, no Gaza). The Boer army is not the absolute largest out there, but its high proportion of “evolved” units like all those composite bowmen and an increasing proportion of pikes make it perform better than the Ethiopian carpet of doom (which seems not to manifest itself much in this part) or the Zulu army below.
