Age of Mythology TRL - Cataphract Picture

As of the release of Age of Mythology: Tale of the Dragon, this unit is no longer available to the Roman civilization. It has since been replaced with the cavalry unit Celeres:…

Cataphract (cavalry)

The Cataphract is slower than most cavalry units but is also heavily armored and effective at taking down archers and siege weapons. They also take up less population than most cavalry units in AoM and train faster than the Greek Hippikon. Due to their armor, they are noticeably noisy when moving, making metallic sounds similar to the Automaton.
