What would the world be like if there were no horses or domesticable equines?
Would we have seen war oxen? Would weapons tech have not of progressed so quickly?
I guess there wouldn't be any steppe nomads as we know them. So that would mean no huns, mongols, selcuks and ottomans. Also are there actually animals that can be tamed for war like horses ?
Camels would have taken their place in all of those examples.
>inb4 camels aren't capable
We bred camels to be pack haulers, not war animals.
If we did to horses what we did to camels they would be fine fast transport.
That would take considerable breeding and it would still yield less capable results. Cattle don't have the stamina running.
Most likely you don't have the same aristocratic traditions. Wars are fought and one by masses of infantry fighting in formation either at a range or on foot. Empires would be harder to administrate due to the communications loop.
