They are also able to flight against flying units. While being vulnerable in close combat they are the most efficient at interaction with other units.

Description

A crossbow, a recently invented weapon, has already gained popularity among mercenaries of all kinds. Crossbowmen detachments in service with various lords are a mixed bag, with every mercenary trying to show his richness through his clothes. Alongside with crossbows, such detachments are armed with short swords or daggers and protected with light armor. Commanders readily ignore these warriors' arrogance and lack of due discipline, as a crossbowman array salvo stops even the enemies protected by good armor.
