Cavalry Archers are ranged Cavalry that deal pierce damage in combat with significant bonuses against Infantry Spearmen and Infantry Swordsmen. Useful against large Melee masses in battle and being a mobile and sturdy archer platform. They can quickly move into battle, pour long-ranged sustained fire into the battlefield and quickly retreat after taking pounding. Promoted Cavalry Archers receive upgrades to their range and a small boost to their hitpoints and armor.
