Ahadis (ETW Unit)
Dressed in the finest uniforms, their saddles encrusted in precious gems, their weapons and equipment likewise, their horses perfectly turned out and decorated with tassels, the Ahadis would look entirely at home guarding a magnificently-appointed palace. They are capable of that, but they are also capable of so much more. These are practical warriors for a working battle, with a good grasp of tactics and the skills needed to cut almost any enemy to ribbons. As they charge home the tassels make each horse appear winged!
Each man is hand picked, trained to ride without thinking about it, and given the very best horse and equipment Mughal money can buy.
“Ahadi” literally means “royal messenger”, and the message they delivered on the battlefield was a devastating one of terror and violence!
Ahadis are a Heavy Cavalry unit available only to the Mughal Empire. Due to their strong armour and powerful charge, Ahadis make an excellent shock cavalry which would be able to outlast less equipped opponents in combat. As with all Heavy Cavalry, Ahadis should be used to break formations and cause havoc among the enemy lines. They should also be used to tackle any Light Cavalry or weaker Heavy Cavalry. However they should not confront enemy Line Infantry in Square Formation as this would be quite fatal for the unit.
