Mercenary Savaran Cavalry

Savaran are not part of the Persian military, they ARE the Persian military.

The Savaran were a wide-ranging cavalry division under the Sassanid Empire, fielding horsemen from light skirmishes and horseback archers to heavy cataphracts. They were generally drawn from nobility, with the highest posts marked for those from the House of Sassan, and those of Parthian descent. They used a variety of weapons; the Parthian spear being the most famous, but also lances, swords, maces and axes. Sassanid cavalry was born out of the need for a highly-mobile military force that could potentially fight a war on two fronts and make use of the eastern steppes, particularly against the infantry-heavy forces of the western powers of the age.
