Heavy Cavalry are the strongest type of Cavalry, requiring both Metal Metal and Wealth Wealth to recruit. They are strong against Light Infantry, Archers and Light Cavalry but weak against Heavy Infantry, and vulnerable to Ranged Cavalry using hit-and-run tactics.

Starting in the Industrial Age Industrial Age, Heavy Cavalry can be upgraded to Tanks, giving them substantial damage, armour, and hit point upgrades, in addition to a ranged attack.

Unit costs Edit

Heavy Cavalry production cost increases progressively with every Stable unit on the field or currently in production. The default increase is 1 Wealth Wealth and 1 Metal Metal for the second unit created, increasing further with every new unit until the cost cap is reached, which for military units is of +125% their original base value.
