Effect Ulfsarks x2 damage to Cavalry

Swine Array is a Norse technology in Age of Mythology. It is available to worshipers of Bragi and increases Ulfsark damage done to cavalry.


  • Ulfsarks do double damage to Cavalry units.


"The swine array, or svynfylking, was a formation used by the Vikings and originally credited to Odin. Men would form a triangle, with the most heavily armored warriors in front, and perhaps archers in the rear ranks. The array could position spears against charging cavalry, or move forward to drive a wedge through enemy ranks. The array could be used alone, or in multiples with the rear ranks connecting to form a zig-zag frontage."


  • The icon shows spears, despite no Norse unit, let alone Ulfsarks use spears, this is most likely due to it originally being a technology affecting the cut Bondi unit.
