In Medieval Military, a Military Warhorse is worth Two and a Half Men. Why?
In military terms, cavalry have the offense four times stronger than infantry, and defense three times stronger than infantry for an average of three and a half men. However, the cavalryman himself is a man, so that means the horse is the remaining portion, or two and a half men. What is half a man? In military terms, half a man is a boy of at least 12 years old.
There is a time where stealing a horse deserves the death penalty because it is equal to murdering two and a half men from the military.
