The equites are an expensive force of medium cavalrymen. They wear a linothorax or pectoral plate, making them somewhat capable of shock actions, and are armed with swords. While they may not be as effective as similarly priced cavalry units of other factions, they are still decent units.


Historically, the Roman equites were made up of wealthy and influential nobles. They would usually be deployed on the flanks of the army.
