Age of Empires Series Wiki

The War God commands! Four Jaguar Prowl Knights assemble at your Home City Gather Point.
—In-game description

Aztec Scouting Party is a Big Button technology in Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs that is unique to the Aztecs and can be researched at the Town Center once the Commerce Age is reached. Once researched, 4 Jaguar Prowl Knights will appear in the Home City shipment point. Aztec Raiding Party is the further upgrade of this technology.

This technology is cost-effective, as each Jaguar Prowl Knight costs a total of 120 resources. It arrives considerably faster than training these units (10 seconds versus 37 second training time by default) and only requires a Town Center.

With the Industrial Age Old Ways Home City shipment, the cost is reduced to 200 food.

The Mexicans can research an Aztec Scouting Party technology named Tlaxcaltec Scouting Party after selecting the Tlaxcala Federal State through the "Tlaxcala Alliance" Home City Card. This ships 4 Aztec Jaguar Warriors instead.
