Good skirmishes, lightly armoured and fighting with a javelin and a short sword.
Ranged warfare in the Rus' was more widely used and a more valued tactic than in Western Europe. But every Slavic man couldn't afford a bow, or learn how to use one. The javelin is a perfect weapon for the common low status Slav who can use his brawn to hurl them into the enemy's ranks. Light and mobile; the javelin is an infantry standard. This company can create an overwhelming effect if used in appropriate numbers.

  • In Castles, Slavic Javelinmen are recruited in Garrison Quarters.
