Swadian Footmen are the first trained melee units in the Swadian army. They are commonly stationed as guards and watchmen in Swadian towns. Their armor has been significantly upgraded in Warband: from Padded Leather to Mail with Tunic, making them on par with Nord Trained Footmen.
Despite being far less reliable than their higher-tier counterparts, Swadian Footmen are a good choice for making up the backbone of an early army. Due to their low wage, they can be trained and kept in mass while maintaining financial stability.
Because of their mediocre weapons and armor however, they will be easily cut through by mid to high-tier enemies. If facing a cavalry charge, it would be wise to group your Footmen close together and take up a defensive formation to reduce losses and ideally, to swarm the cavalrymen.
