Siladar Lancers were the basic cavalry unit of the Maratha Confederacy. They were well trained to use the lance.
These units used the lance as their standard weapons. They used these lances to impale enemies, and possessed a deadly charge. However once in a melee, the lance was more of a hindrance, and hence caused heavy casulaties.
They were useful to perform hit and run attacks on slower enemy troops, or to break an enemy line for more powerful units to attack.
