The army may be run either as:

The customary fighting force would often be only the camelry and dismounted Tuareg which can be picked from the bonus units. In Tuareg society only the nobility and their vassals were allowed to carry weapons as a right and own camels. For long distance campaigns out of the Sahara, it is the authors opinion that weapons and a camel are mandatory equipment

Otherwise, the corollary force is that the other classes in Tuareg society, the priesthood, merchants, artisans and farmers/servants/slaves had specific duties which tied them to the tribal lands and villages, except in dire emergency, when they would be expected to fight in their own defence. The Imrad slave classes often fought better than the townspeople, or at least had no choice but to do their best. In any event, surprising numbers of foot could be mustered.

The Tuaregs were the masters of the desert and thus the monopoly of the salt trade. This market structure still exists to this day with the Tuaregs still under threat from the common enemy. This time the modern truck is the threat.

The army may also fight in the Triumph of Cavalry period.
