Other peoples had the chariot before the Egyptians. In fact, the first Egyptian king to adopt a crash helmet for a crown was Kamose of Dynasty 17, so the Hyksos probably had chariots. There were the "maryanu", the foreign chariot fighters, encountered by the kings of Dynasty 18, long before Ramesses II. However, when the Egyptian army went forth with its chariots that contained archers, not all of their enemies would necessarily be equipped with chariots or an equal amount of them.
