Silladar Lancers are a type of melee cavalry in Empire: Total War.

DescriptionEdit

These cavalrymen are armed with a long spear or lance that makes them particularly deadly when charging.

These cavalrymen are armed with a long spear or lance that makes them particularly deadly when charging. The lance is probably the oldest cavalry weapon. It gives the user a chance ot put all the momentium of himself and his charging horse into one very sharp point that can, in the hands of a skilled man, be driven right through any man. This is what makes lances so intimidating to face but, if the lancer does not kill his target, then he is vulnerable. A long lance is a good deal less useful in a melee than a sword, and a lancer is at a disadvantage once the close fighting starts. Historically, many nations used lancers, although the European fashion for them owes much to the uhlans: cavalry raised for Austrian and Prussian service. The French adopted lancers with some enthusiasm, and Napoleon even included Polish lancers in his Imperial Guard. In India the lance had long been used as a weapon, and lancer skills were often improved by "pegging" (picking tent pegs out of the ground with the lance tip) or pig-sticking (hunting wild pigs or even wild dogs with the lance). Native Indian lancers were rightly feared by European troops.

General InformationEdit

Silladar lancers are the only early cavalry available to the Maratha Confederacy. They are fairly typical lancer cavalry, boasting excellent charging capabilities but otherwise poor stats. In the later game, the Maratha gain access to Bargir Lancers, which are superior in most ways but are also marginally more expensive.
