Cavalry Archer


When cavalrymen advance to become cavaliers, they start carrying crossbows to give themselves a powerful one-shot ranged attack. Those cavalrymen who show a better-than-average skill at archery may become Cavalry Archers instead. They use their horses as mobile archery platforms, and carry a heavier load of arrows than an infantry archer could feasibly manage, while still retaining the speed of a cavalry unit. They also retain all their old skill with the cavalry saber, and this combination of high mobility, flexibility and resilience makes them of great value on the battlefield.

Special Notes: This unit has a defense cap on certain terrain types — it cannot achieve a higher defense rating on mixed terrains with such terrain types.
