Speed and Ranged Attack capabilities make the Horse Archer an effective Medieval Age unit. Better suited to support than direct combat, the Horse Archer is an ideal unit to accompany siege armies and Knights. Their greater speed and vision make them superior to all previous mounted units for scouting.


Skilled horse-archers like the Mongols were able to strike with terrifying speed and disperse before their victims could mount an effective defense. Riding hardy, longhaired ponies, the Mongols were able to cover ground quickly and blaze across the plains of Asia with relentless speed.
