Khergit Skirmishers are troops of the Khergit Khanate.


Khergit Skirmishers upgrade from Khergit Tribesman, and are second-tier cavalry. They have bows and some horse archery skill, but their armor and horses are not very good at all. Due to their lack of lances, these units are less useful than the otherwise similar Steppe Bandits, but can be upgraded very quickly.

The best tactic for Khergit Skirmishers is to not rely on them too much. Even though they have horses, they aren't very useful except against light infantry. However, you can very easily amass them, and a lot of cavalry is always devastating against infantry, such as bandits. They upgrade easily, and it's highly recommended you upgrade them as soon as possible.

After upgrading them into Khergit Horsemen, all horsemen have bow and arrows.
