Steppe Horse Raiders (Level 2) have a lower base DPS than Assyrian Horse Raiders (Level 1), but have a higher damage bonus against resource buildings.

Mercenary Cavalry Raiders have higher base damage than regular cavalry raiders, however the Level 1 and 3 units have a lower damage bonus, making the Mercenary Cavalry less effective against their preferred targets, resource buildings. For example, Condottieri Raiders and Dragoon Raiders are both available in the Gunpowder age. Condottieri Raiders do 300 dps and Dragoon Raiders do 465 dps against resource buildings. Mercenary Cavalry Raiders do have higher hitpoints than the regular raider units available for some ages.
