These superb heavy cavalry are important shock troops in any Mughal army.
Dressed in the finest uniforms, their saddles encrusted in precious gems, their weapons and equipment likewise, their horses perfectly turned out and decorated with tassels, the Ahadis would look entirely at home guarding a magnificently-appointed palace. They are capable of that, but they are also capable of so much more. These are practical warriors for a working battle, with a good grasp of tactics and the skills needed to cut almost any enemy to ribbons. As they charge home the tassels make each horse appear winged!
Each man is hand picked, trained to ride without thinking about it, and given the very best horse and equipment Mughal money can buy.
“Ahadi” literally means “royal messenger”, and the message they delivered on the battlefield was a devastating one of terror and violence!
Ahadis are the Mughal equivalent of elite cavalry. As lancer cavalry, Ahadis naturally have a very high charge bonus. Unlike most lancer cavalry, however, Ahadis also possess good melee and defensive skills.
They compare most similarly to Sipahis, which are also heavy lance cavalry available in similar regions. Ahadis are slightly superior to sipahis in every way, but are correspondingly more expensive.
