Exp For Kill
Swadian Knights are a heavy cavalry unit. They are the strongest cavalry unit in Mount&Blade, though have been rivaled in Warband with the addition of Sarranid Mamlukes. The Sarranid Mamluke is a very similar unit, with small differences including wage and stats, and of course, choice of equipment.
Swadian Knights can be used to charge the front line of enemy troops, as they have heavy armor and they are not that vulnerable to the attacks of enemy infantry.
One of the most effective tactics to use with the Swadian Knights however, is to have your infantry hold ground, creating a defensive wall. When the enemy are advancing towards your infantry, tell your cavalry to follow you and flank to the left or right until you are behind the advancing enemy. When they are within charging distance, charge both your cavalry and your infantry at the same time, timing can be very important as, ideally, they need to hit the enemy simultaneously. This will greatly weaken the enemy, as they will be directing their attention to two directions at once, effectively halving their combat effectiveness.
It is recommended not to use flanking tactics in a hilly battlefield since the horses won't be able to run at full speed and will be taken down more easily. Instead try to let the battle take place on a flat piece of ground or keep them together with your infantrymen.
