For much of Ancient rome's history, the Legion was their basic and best unit. It could form massive formations, but were still mobile enough to outmaneuver the enemy. However, due to its heavyness, ranged units could pick it off easily.

These units are from the Iron age.  A Legionnaire has the highest defense among the Iron age units, but has a moderate attack and slow speed. They have a defense bonus on plain terrain and a combat bonus against light infantry, like other Heavy Infantry units.

These units are effective against both melee classes and cavalry classes, but are vulnerable to ranged classes, as both have combat bonus against Legionnaires. In addition to their slow speed, they are usually killed without attacking any unit when encountered with several ranged units.
