Roman Plumbata Thrower

Plumbata is similar to pilum. It is smaller and easier to shoot. Some Late roman legionaries were equiped with them instead of old pilum.
Cost 3
Hp 16
Attack 6
Range 2-4
Armor 1/3
Speed 3
Sight 5
Action/turn 2

+50% v light and medium foot meele, mounted archer, flying

It is like an hybrid of archer and skirmisher, a little armored.

Hybrid is meant to have weaknesses of both, strengths of both. Depending on balance - the second attribute can be weakened.

Your stats says something else - strengths of both (even a little better), weaknesses of none.

18 damage to melees with resilience to get 2 attacks and still be standing , 10 damage to knights and survives attack from them, very resistant vs towers and archers. All for 3 turn cost?
And it even throws heavy plumbata to height of tens of meters, where flying machines can be found.

Well, plumbata werent as heavy as pilum
Maybe the attack is a little high
Also bonuses are too high
I will think again on stats
