Islamic Swordsmen (ETW Unit)
Although a sword, no matter what its design, may appear outdated next to a musket, it has one great advantage: it never needs loading. A truly skilled swordsman will never want for employment, and he is an intimidating sight to many regular musket-armed soldiers.
Units of swordsmen are also easier to handle tactically on a battlefield. A general does not have to make fine judgements about when to hold or give fire: he need only send his men forward to do their killing work at the right time. Once committed, they will keep fighting until death or victory comes.
Islamic Swordsmen are a melee unit available only to the Islamic factions in the Indian theater. They are good swordsmen apt at cutting down enemy units with ease. However they should not engage musket armed units head on as this will likely end in disaster. Furthermore they should also avoid engagements with cavalry as this too could be lethal for the Islamic swordsmen.
