The Polish Reiter (or Rajtar/Rajtaria in plural) is a Medium Pistol Cavalry unit of the Polish Commonwealth. You can recruit these units from commanders in towns or fortresses or as prisoners from enemy armies. The Polish Reiter is an interesting Polish cavalry unit that has been reformed through Western influence to mirror the European Reiters. The Polish Reiter carries a red half-plate cuirass, simple morion, cavalry gloves, and old cavalry boots. It is armed with a good sword (thrusting) and pistol. It rides a saddle horse.



Troop stats.

The Polish Reiter is a reliable pistol cavalry unit with stats and equipment that makes it superior and more efficient to the Polish Volunteer. Its good western-style head and body armor makes it somewhat impregnable to saber cuts and arrow heads, except for thrusting attacks or bullets. While its western-style thrusting sword can only attack in one direction, it has strong and quick piercing damage, which is typically designed for defeating both foot and mounted enemies in close quarter combat, especially against armored ones.

The Reiter's pistol, while it has limited rang and accuracy, is more designed to wound an enemy so that it can finish it off with a quick thrust to the head or body. In theory, the Polish Reiter can be a reliable cavalrymen on the battlefield only if they face light or medium armored enemy troops. Also, the Veteran Polish Reiter has a better thrusting sword and pistol.

In combat, Polish Reiters are superior to lightly equipped Pike and Musket Infantry units, especially the Militia units. They are also superior to light cavalrymen in melee combat like the Swedish or Polish Dragoon and Cossack Cavalrymen, but if it engages against Medium and Heavy Cavalry, like a Swedish Reiter, Noble Guard, Moscow Reiter, Zaporozhian Cavalryman, Asak Bey, Nokhor, Mirza Chambul, or even a Winged Hussar, there is a good chance the Polish Reiter will lose the fight. Heavier Pike or Musket Infantry units, like Pikemen, Lifeguards, Serduks, and Seymens, also pose a challenge for the Polish Reiters to deal with alone. To utilize the Rajtar effectively, deployed them behind Dragoons and Winged Hussars when they are charging into enemy lines so that the Polish Reiter can be used as back-up cavalry. They can also support other missile cavalrymen with quick pistol shots when they encircle the enemy's fortified caravan. When defending castles, forts, or towns, placing them next to musketeers at the entrance of the siege gap can provide extra firepower at point-blank range, as well as in melee. When besieging these fortifications, deploy them behind heavily armored units or units with shields, so that when your troops have breached the walls, the Polish Reiter can use its pistol and thrusting sword to its fullest potential.
