Equites cataphractarii were the most heavily armoured type of cavalry in Late Roman field armies. Mounted on fully armoured horses and wielding an extremely long spear with both hands, cataphracts operated in close and controlled formations at relatively low speeds but were a potent strike force, taking on infantry and cavalry alike. Unfortunately, the all-encompassing armour, so effective against missile weapons, was heavy and uncomfortable for both rider and mount. Horses often suffered from heat exhaustion and once the unit’s formation was broken, cataphracts became vulnerable to lighter troops.
