M2TW Kingdoms:


The turks are a powerful faction in the crusades expansion and have several new units, they have the strongest late-game ranged roster and are very powerful in all ways. to compensate for this they have direct exposure to the mongols. They can complete their starting objectives very early on. They have the most reinforcements in this campaign(2 , Osman and the jihad) and start with their hero (nur-al-din) They have a very scattered initial empire, and it cannot be reunited through any simple means. Their main adverseries are the Byzantine Empire and the principality of Antioch. They can expect a very fast game on easier difficulties to their large initial armies, but have an easy time attacking at later stages if they prepate for the Mongols. The Turks are overall, the most versatile faction . It can be played as a horse-archer mobility faction or a full foot archer army that can melee very well or as a traditional army in the normal sense. It is however, lacking in cheap backbone units until later on.

Starting Position

The turks begin in the East and the slightly northwest split between some rebel settlements and the principality of antioch .

Eastern Area

The (south)eastern area is mostly surrounded by rebels, but there's one region bordering the Principality of Antioch. It is directly in the way of the Mongol invasion (or most of the positions where they can appear)

The Turks begin with the four cities of Mosul, Baghdad, Takrit and Raqqa in this area, Baghdad being the most advanced.

Northwestern Area

This area is composed of 5 towns Icorium Ankara Doryleum Amorium and Kirscheia. Very near to the byzantine empire, they have a few interesting rebel regions both to the south and north of them however. They are also very close to the principality of Antioch .

Hashashims Guild

The hashashims guild will periodically offer missions to kill enemies.



The infantry of the turks is fairly weak. But the jannisary heavy infantry is one that is one of the best in the game, if expensive. The dismounted hasham is also a very versatile unit that can hold its own in general .

Ranged Infantry

The turks have amazing ranged troops in general, and the pinnacle of these are the Jannisaries, Boasting both jannisary archers and jannisary musketeers they have powerful ranged penetration. With the addition of the turkish crossbow they have cheap armor piercing power. The Jannisary archer can also lay stakes, one of the more powerful abilities in the game.

While the turks cavalry is nothing special, the quapkulu is worth noting for having a large mass and despite the stats a usually devestating charge, but theyre rare and only available later on.

Ranged cavalry

The Turks are likely the second best faction for horse archers right after the mongols, they have good early availability and very powerful ranged attacks and the elite can occasionally engage in melee with weak opponents

The Turks recieve an amazing array of artillery, probably the best in the game. They have the ultimate wall-tearing gun the Monster Grand Bombard, have some solid cannons for killing units, and have the ultra-awesome mangonel to boot!

Unique Crusades Hero


Nur-al-din Initially starts very powerful, with high Command piety, and reduced agent training costs. He has the ability to increase the Morale and attack speed of troops neary for a few seconds for one time per battle. While this is occuring friendly banners will glow yellow. His model also looks awesome


Banners yellow as honey.

Power Center loss Reinforcement

Currently i know two possibilities that may be true. but only one is

A)When a power center is lost you will recieve a stack based on the number of times its been lost and the turn .

Or maybe.

B)The number of times one has been taken .

If A, you you can lose the capital up to 5 times before they start appearing, you will get the stack the first time only if its turn 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 / >60 In order for the 5 waves and you have less then and under 5/6/7/8/9 cities overall. Im unsure if this is to prvent constant spawning when a city is captured and then retaking repeatedly, or if this can only happen between the turns.

If B, its only dependent on when you lose it

Either way ,you get a maximum of 5 reinforcement stacks, for the turks they are the following

1st Time

2 turkomans

2 peasents

2 peasent archers

2 town militia

2 kurdish auxilaries
