Cavalry are "infantry" units, created entirely of food (with a timber ramp cost for some), and and are meant to act as a fast-moving anti-infantry unit. These units, while they are very strong against infantry (other than machine guns and sub-machine guns), cost solely of food, and require a lot of it in order to be recruited. They however will prove their worth on open ground: while cavalry aren't meant to be head-on fighters, but used instead as screening forces - tanks may be worthless against enemy artillery and antitank weapons, but cavalry can sometimes be the perfect weapon if you can afford them. Use them to skirmish stragglers, especially machine guns and isolated infantry - but start running when the tanks and armoured cars show up!

  • Fastest of all infantry units, but with less armour and hitpoints.
  • Strong melee (or ranged) attack vs all infantry, but terrrible performance against armour, buildings, machine guns and vehicles
  • With the exception of Chinese cavalry, all the others are armed with either pistols or swords.

Mainstream unitsEdit

Carabiniers are horse units. They carry short carbines, meaning that their attack range is curtailed compared to rifle infantry, and also have lower armour, but what they lack in punching power, they make up for it by being able to punish infantry if they ride in close up as well as faster speed.

Mech. infantryEdit

These cost more or less the same as cavalry in food, but have an added cost in oil. They are perhaps the fastest land units and while they unlike cavalry have more armour and sport a light machine gun, they still perform poorly especially against heavy machine guns and other vehicles.
