The Camel Rider was a rider and camel dressed in light to medium armor. Due to the Camel's resilience to desert conditions unlike horses. They were not fully used as a military unit until 500-100 B.C.E. under the Egyptians and Persians. Camels that were not in battle would be used as logistical support. The Camel was good enough for the Romans to create a Camel Rider auxiliary force know as Dromedarii.
