The Battle Wagon is a unit of the Dwarven faction in The Battle for Middle-earth II. It is the first available Dwarven siege-unit, and in its speed compensates for the Dwarven faction's lack of a cavalry unit.

Lore Edit

Underground caverns are not conducive to breeding fast and healthy horses, so Dwarves are not natural cavaliers. (Never mind the fact they can't reach the stirrups.) That doesn't mean that Dwarves are totally without some degree of animal companions. One of the varieties of livestock kept by the Dwarves is the Yurg, a sort of underground Yak native to the Misty Mountains. Yurgs serve the Dwarves as beasts of burden during construction efforts as well as war. In addition, the Dwarves are always prepared to empty their pull-carts of construction supplies and load them up with axe-throwers or archers from Dale and take to the battlefield. The Dwarven Battlewagon is also well armored and extremely heavy, meaning that even one lone Battlewagon can break through enemy lines without taking significant damage.
