Perhaps the most powerful cavalry unit in Rome: Total War, the Cataphracts of Parthia are very heavy horsemen, who carry not only spears but also maces - they are the only troops in the game to do so. Cataphracts are capable of breaking through almost anything, even the spear-wielding infantry that can deter most other cavalry. Their only shortcoming is the fact that their excellent but heavy plate armour slows them down and makes them tire faster than others.
