|This article is about the particular unit. For the entire line of light mounted troops, see Light Cavalry.|
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.
