The rodelero is a very fast moving heavy infantry unit which is devestating in melee combat. It has a high hand resistance making it effective in melee combat, and a good multiplier against cavalry. Since the rodelero is so good in hand to hand combat, and is so fast, it can defeat certain ranged infantry such as crossbowmen in small numbers, making it a very effective unit in early game. The rodelero is much more expensive than a pikeman, and has lower siege damage, but it is more versatile, and stronger making it a very unique unit.
