The equites extraordinarii are heavy shock cavalry units, able to cause much disorder and damage with their deadly charges. Armed with a xyston lance and wearing expensive bronze cuirasses, attic helmets and greaves, these are high quality cavalry units, though they are costly to recruit.


Historically, equites extraordinarii were the best third of the socii cavalry. Many of them would have been Campanians, who were well known for their fine horsemen.


Their unit model was changed in The Hellenistic Era 0.11.
