Ironically, despite being named "Swordsman" their sprites clearly show them wielding a hand-axe.
Notable appearances Edit
Besides that, in The Elopement (third scenario of Prithviraj), there are Nordic Swordsmen renamed as "Elite Red Guards", serving Raja Jaichand in Kannauj as two pairs. Though it is possible to backstab one, it would alert the partner and the entire guards.
