So for Equine Fever the following are affected:
Chariots, Lt.Horse, Hs.Archers, Elephants, Knights, Hs, Artillery but not tanks, Correct?
I took the units listed under Cavalry on the Unit type chart on the back of the rule book to complie the list of affected units.
For disorder removal it states a non-archer missile unit is needed to negate the city penalty which by the unit chart listing missile units does not include Hs Artillery (as they are listed under Cavalry), so Hs.Artillery would not negate the city penalty,correct?
I see the NPG says elephants are not affected but under any interpretation of the rules as I read them they are as there is no listed exception.
Hs.Artillery would also be affected when decreased Cav costs or a no Cav symbol on the card is in effect, it would seem.
Or did Harry just list Hs.Artillery in the wrong type?

I don't think there's any way to stretch "equine" to include both elephants and tanks.

Well if it can't include both which could it include?

Maybe those feverish horses are panicking the elephants and keep getting in the way of the tanks. "What more diseased horse blood covering the driver's view ports?!"

In the nit-pickers' guide, I claimed that elephants were an exception to Equine Fever, based on the title of the event. As Brian said, there is no sense in which elephants are "equine".

However, you are correct, according to the wording of the card, since elephants are explicitly included among the "cavalry" unit types. Moreover, Harry confirmed last August (though IIRC that conversation was triggered by a different question) that elephants are cavalry "for all purposes", so that would presumably include Equine Fever. I'm considering changing the NPG to reflect this (though I'm not entirely happy with it).

Correct. That has been explicitly confirmed by Harry.

That is correct also.

"Cavalry units" are those specified on the Progress Track as cavalry units. This includes Hs. Artillery and elephants.
