Mainstream units are units which are most often trained by all factions, although certain regional units are often replicas of other mainstream units, ie Eastern Mailed Lancers and Western Knights. In the Imperial Era, mainstream infantry and cavalry often require Centralisation.
Regional units are often shared by two or more factions, and will have a variety of bonuses allotted to them. They however are not as strong as unique units, and may often have some weakness associated with them, ie polearms infantry sacrifice movement and attack speed for a more devastating, multiway attack.
Unique units form the elite of your armies. Imperial Era unique infantry and cavalry do not require Centralisation, but may instead require a different technology to be researched.
