These mercenaries are some of the best javelineers available. While they are only marginally better armoured than the Peltastai of the Hellenistic states, they are superior in almost every other regard, able to throw their javelins further and with more force, and able to take more hits before being killed. However this is reflected in their cost, as they are more expensive than typical Peltastai.
Historically, the Thracians became famous for their peltasts well before the Hellenistic times, and their effectiveness led the Hellenic states to adopt their own Peltastai units.
