How were chinese cavalry units equipped? Which weapons did they use?
This is an extremely vague question as Chinese cultures have used different forms of cavalry units for over 3500 years. In general, Chinese cavalry forces would usually be equipped with either a sword or spear and would be used to harass or encircle enemy units in order to cause panic and routing. Many cavalry units would also use bows to shoot at enemy troops from a distance and upon the introduction of handguns would also use these whilst riding on horse back.
