I been fascinated by both of these units. I know they was from different eras but nevertheless, who do you think had the better success when they was around?

Didn't the Croats also have a good Light Cavalry? Or am I thinking about Light Infantry?

Can't choose, as one is in reality light cavalry while the other is heavy.

The British used similar light cavalry to the Hungarians, in the form of Hobelars, probably of Irish origin. During the 15th century they were replaced by mounted longbowmen almost entirely, until Light Dragoons re introduced the light cavalry concept back into the British Army.
