I don't see how Nords are weak against cavalry... Stand closer four times and they will instant stop, demount, and demolish.

I wouldn't say the Vaegirs have great cavalry either, or that they have great survive-ability considering they have no shields and use two handers.
 
A cons of Vaegir is "few shields".

Average infantry isn't a pro of Sarranid! It is a cons:their infantry is inferior and same tier, not like nord archers that are weak but they train fast. A pro of sarranid infantry is the mounted flag.
 
Sarranid Mamluks > Swadian Knights. Especially since they got slightly  buffed this patch and got new warhorses a patch or 2 ago.
 
mamlukes ant better than swadian knights u an get an average by looking at wage cost - i saw in my game

Swadian Knight 50 D

Wage cost has nothing to do with how good they are - higher leveled units cost more. An NPC's level doesn't affect its stats at all.

Nords need cavalry. Some horse archers would do them good, ya think?

It doesn't fit with them. They need archers with shield: since horse archer cost a lot more to upkeep, I would say sharpshooters, or just edit the game and add shield to nord archers.
 
Hey, cool list livingdeath62, do you think you could color code the OP? It is fine if you don't have the time, it would just be helpful.
 
Another pros for both Swadian and Sarranid should be "fast on map" since all troops have the mounted flag.

And Khergits?
Pros:
-Very fast on map
-Cavalry at tier 2
-Cheap and fast to train heavy cavalry
-Archers with shields
Cons:
-Horse archers need a lot of micro
-No cheap unit
-No good meele units on siege

Only their top tier infantry (Swadian Sharpshooters/Sergeants Sarranid Master Archers/Guards) have the mounted tag; the others do not.
