From the 7th and 8th century onwards the Arabs conquered for themselves an empire extending form Iberia to the borders of India, a caliphate earned by the blood of their tribal soldiers skilled in the art of war and honorable combat. Even now, these Arab tribal warriors fighting in the service of their once mighty caliphate are excellent troops capable of cutting a path towards a new future with the caliph at its head. They consider themselves masters of the sword and brave fighters without peer. Though one may doubt their claim in skill, few can doubt that these hardened men of the desert are brave indeed. Garbed in light, classical Arab uniform, they are not heavy infantry, but they promise to inflict heavy casualties upon all but the most worthy enemies.
