Scytyjska lekka jazda - czwarty oddział/ Scythian light horse - fourth unit
More stands of Scythian light horse. Only one unit left to finish the entire army.
Now few words about Scythian way of fighting. Their armies in majority were composed of horse archers and the main weapon was a refletive bow. Because it was quite short it enabled free manouvering. Scythians were probably fighting similarily as Parthians did, by unleashing storm of arrows and later attacking disorganised enemy with heavy cavalry. Fighting among Scythian tribes had to be based on many manoeuvers, feigned flights and attacks of the light horse.
