Ritters are cavalry units in Classical Age that are more defensive than Knights.

They are excellent when the enemy is using plenty of siege units, but are very expensive. Their high armour allows more of them to survive each volley. Most enemy siege units can only kill two of these with each shot, whereas upgraded ballistae or a Polybolos could kill 3 Horsemen in each round.
