    In the latter half of the 15th century, the Venetians introduced the Stradiots. Hailing from Albania, these Albanian warriors dress in Turkish fashion and wear padded or light mail armour and helmets. Armed with spear and mace, these unique troops are renowned for their ferocity, and for their lack of discipline.


    Stradiots are a rather good light cavalry unit, who, though appearing to be weak, are quite strong due to their armour piercing mace. The stradiots are also quite fast, meaning that they can usually out run enemy cavalry units. They are exceptional for attacks against missile units or for rear charges against melee units but should avoid direct confrontation with heavy cavalry units or even any confrontation at all. They also require a high level stables to be recruited and thus are usually only seen in the late game.
