Swine Array is a Norse myth technology in Age of Mythology that is available to worshipers of Bragi and can be researched at the Longhouse. Once researched, it doubles the damage Ulfsarks do to cavalry units.

Trivia[]

  • 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.

History[]

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.
