Cavalry Stables is a special structure only available to Persians.


The Persian Empire's best soldiers were Eastern horsemen. Persian forces mainly depended on high number of archers and cavalry. Their fast cavalry forces are often used as shock attack in battle. Under Achaemenid feudalism, the so-called Hatru system, cavalry was recruited from among the wealthiest estate holders and of excellent quality all-around. Their horses are the now-extinct Nisean breed, one of the most sought after horsebreed.
