After many years of war, you have obtained a new technology to your people that your enemies had long ago. The chariot. It is a very smart way to fight wars according to your advisers. After the new capitol of Pi-Ramese was built you have turned it into a war-time industry city. They have constructed 250 chariots in 2 weeks as your ordered. Now you plan to retake the city of Kadesh, where the Hittite have conquered because they saw strategic importance in the city. They were correct. Kadesh was a huge center of trade, It was considered a monument, a monument of wealth of the Great Egyptian Empire. Now the Hittite has captured it, and you must use your new fleet of Chariots against theirs. In comparison, your chariots are faster, have a tighter turn radius, allowing the archer to unload 10 arrows after a sharp u-turn. The Hittite on the other hand, have slower, less turn radius chariots, but had a stronger axle, allowing 3 troops on board instead of 2. This was going to be the largest use of chariots in the Ancient world. The the peak, about 6,000 chariots were at combat. You have a camp south of the castle, and the Hittites have launched a counter attack. Enraged, you King Ramese II charge to attack. Retake the castle, and win the war!

Conclusion(best read after victory)-You have the upper hand now. The enemy's chariots have fled, but the garrison remains. You do not have the supplies for a siege, and the Hittites don't have the supplies to defend. Eventually the King of the Hittites ask for a seize fire. You accept. Late smaller skirmishes take place in Kadesh. But you returned home as a hero. Even though you did not win nor lose, you considered the battle to be a victory for you. It raised the moral of your people. Later the first peace treaty is signed between the two kingdoms. An alliance is formed later against the oppressor of the two kingdoms, the Assyrians.

This map is a historically correct map to a large degree. The only parts that were not correct was that you had more chariots(horse archers) than the enemy when you were supposed to be outnumbered, and that to win you had to kill the king, which is a little add on from me.
