Sabotage half size version.png In the Extended Edition, this unit/building is affected by a damage bug.


The Stratiotai is the Greek unique Heavy Cavalry of the Gunpowder Age.png Gunpowder Age that replaces the standard Heavy Knight.


Compared to Heavy Knights, Stratiotai have +6 movement speed, making them the fastest Heavy Cavalry, even surpassing the standard upgrades of the next ages. This means that Stratiotai can function as a rapid response unit, almost as much as Light Cavalry, easily outrunning Ranged Cavalry and being even more capable than standard Heavy Cavalry to eliminate the already vulnerable Foot Archers and Gunpowder Infantry. Stratiotai also do +5% damage against all units and buildings, which makes them more lethal in all situations.
