King Khalid would be seen as a typical ranged Titan, possessing an average range and expected stats. However, there are a couple of things which makes this untrue and makes King Khalid unique.
Firstly, he doesn't count as being a missile unit. This means he can still fight at his full combat stat when engaged in melee, as well as being unaffected by the Orcs' "Cowards" powerup. Further more, this allows his ranged attack to be upgraded by the Weaponsmith and Mithril upgrades, allowing him to reach a ranged damage amount of 105! Secondly, like with all other units in the game with the Dwarf or Minotaur racial tag, he can take advantage of the Dwarven Brew powerup, allowing him to temporarily increase his combat and speed stat for a small fee of gold.
Although these traits make him slightly different to other ranged Titans, they're not actually note worthy or practical enough to be of much use to him. With only an average range of 8, King Khalid will find himself under common archer projectiles all too often. It must be also noted that, although he has such high combat that misses from his attacks are rare, they have no scatter which results in a missed attack being an actual miss - i.e: a wasted attack. These drawbacks mean that King Khalid must have a decent retinue of sturdy body guards around him at all times. Fortunately for him, although the Dwarves are short folks, they aren't short on options for defensive formations. Between Dwarf Lords, Berserkers, Khazrimi Guards and Runners, King Khalid can find the appropriate guards for the situation, allowing him to focus his mighty ranged attack towards a target worthy of his attention!
