Overview Edit

When the Light Horse becomes Light Cavalry, it gains +18 hit points, +1 attack strength, and +1 line of sight.

The fastest unit of its age, Light Cavalry excels when attacking Light Infantry, Ranged Cavalry, Artillery Weapons and Supply Wagons. However, Heavy Cavalry and Heavy Infantry, as well as building fire will bring them down as fast as they move, and are vulnerable to Foot Archer fire.

All in all, the Light Cavalry, and Light Cavalry in general, is arguably better than Light Infantry in most roles, except for two: Light Infantry is much more effective against a large force of Foot Archers, and can garrison inside Towers if necessary, while cavalry in general cannot.
