Khergit Veteran Horse Archers are the highest-tier ranged unit for the Khergit Khanate, as well as being in the top tier overall.


They are mounted on Coursers, making them extremely mobile, but the combat AI does not use tactics that reflect their ability. As opposed to static ranged troops that fire arrows at regular intervals, Horse Archers seem to randomly combine shooting, melee, and ramming (which often results in their own demise). They tend to run around in circles without firing any arrows. When closing, Horse Archers will usually attempt to fire, but terrain variations or obstructions may cause them to break off.

An advantage to these units is that they are on horseback, and thus don't slow down your army like any other archers would.

Because they have such fast horses, when charging they will usually be among the first in contact with the enemy. Sword Sisters and Lancers have a similar problem. This is particularly problematic, since Coursers don't have much armor or hitpoints. Also, as mounted archers they respond to "Cavalry Hear Me!" commands with heavy cavalry like Swadian Knights. In Warband, you may redesignate units by going into the party menu and clicking on "Class of troop", and then giving them a new class.

To make the most of their speed and long-range attacking ability, move around infantry formations with your Horse Archers following you, trying to attack your enemies from behind. If you have foot archers like Rhodok Sharpshooters, order them to hold atop a hill, use the "Stand Closer" command only once (any more and not all archers will be able to fire), and catch your opponents in a crossfire of bolts and arrows.
