The Persians were famed and feared for the horse archers they fielded. In 0 A.D., the Persians can train several cavalry types, but not horse archers: pers_cavalry_archer_* is actually a chariot.
The Persians did use scythed chariots, but only in small numbers; e.g. at the battle of Cunaxa (401 BC), Cyrus had 1600 horsemen and 20 chariots (i.e. 80:1) and Artaxerxes 6000 horsemen and 150 chariots (i.e. 40:1). Therefore let's keep it for a champion unit, like the other chariots in game (brit, maur, sele).
- change the (citizen) pers_cavalry_archer_* <Actor> and <Icon> to the Seleucid horse archer's, instead of the Persian chariot's
- change its generic and specific name to Parthian Horse Archer (Asabāra Parθava)
- create a new pers_chariot.xml for the Babylonian Scythed Chariot (Raθa Bābiruviya), which uses the elite chariot <Actor> and <Icon>
The former is a cosmetic change, the latter is not trainable at any Persian structure (could be done in a future patch), therefore this patch does not alter gameplay balance.
- [EDIT]: moves the cavalry archer actors from the seleucids into the persians folder
