The pedites extraordinarii are Rome's elite heavy swordsmen. Well-trained and well-protected, these men are expensive but effective. Their equipment is of Greek influence, with a bronze muscled cuirass, helmet, aspis shield and a kopis slashing sword.
Historically, the pedites extraordinarii were the best fifth of the socii infantry and were selected to serve as a special unit.
Their unit model was changed in The Hellenistic Era 0.11.
