The Horseman is the first calvary unit available in Empire Earth. A lightly armored man bearing a club and shield on top of a horse, it isn't as impressive as future calvary units, but it is still a formidable unit.
As the fastest unit of the Copper Age, the Horseman is good for quickly scouting out areas and luring in enemy units.
Weak against pierce units. Upgraded Javelins can easily take a Horseman down.
