"Inca infantry armed with a flexible spear. Good against cavalry."
In-game description

The Incan Huaminca is a heavy infantry native warrior in Age of Empires III that can be trained at a Trading Post built on an Inca settlement.

Overview Edit

Huamincas are similar to Pikemen and Holcan Spearmen, serving as anti-light infantry and anti-cavalry infantry with considerable siege damage. However, it has higher melee damage, more resistance, and slightly slower siege rate of fire (4 vs 3 for most) in comparison.

As with most infantry, they are weak against artillery.

History Edit

"The standing army of the Inca was formed primarily by nobles, but the emperor could raise an army of able-bodied men from the general populace at will. Military discipline was strictly enforced when they troops were on the march and at the range of their various projectile weapons. Once they had loosed their missiles they closed in hand-to-hand fighting. The Inca used a wide variety of weapons: wooden sword-shaped clubs, star-headed maces, slings, spears, a sophisticated halberd, and bolas. They wore cotton armor that breathed well, allowed for free movement, and dissipated the force of blows. Incan spears were sharpened lengths of wood, hardened in fire. Their halberd had a bronze-bladed axe head opposite a hook and crowned by a stabbing point allowing the huaminca a variety of arms and tactics."
