Castillian Mounted Crossbowmen are mid-high tier troops of the Castillian professional troop tree. As their name suggests, they are mounted soldiers usually equipped with crossbows and darts, small one-handed weapons and heraldic light armor. They are the only ranged cavalry unit in their professional troop tree.

Unlike Jinetes, Mounted Crossbowmen provide a missile cavalry who doesn't need to approach the enemy lines in order to hurt them. They result specially useful in cavalry-based armies, since they have no problem in keeping melee cavalry's pace and can perform support charges if needed. Anyway, due to their lack of a shield and good endurance skills, it's recommended they stay away from tough melee combat.
