The Timurids are a powerful non-playable faction in Medieval II: Total War. They have access to a large amount of firearms, and even elephant-mounted cannon. In fact they have basically all the most powerful cavalry units and artillery of the muslim factions, including Turkish Monster Bombards and Missile Cavalry, as well as the Mongolian Rocket launchers and heavy cavalry. They are a very formidable force that is a large threat to the christian crusaders, Turks and Egyptian factions because of their proximity to the entry point of the Timurids.
- The symbol of the Timurids is based on an interpretation from the Catalan Atlas depicting a Timurid banner
