What is considered light infantry?

What units are considered light infantry? I have seen posts about light infantry being only 3 specific units since warchiefs expansion. Is this actually true? So would that mean that all my units with bonuses vs light infantry (like fusilier 1.5x, halberdier 1.5x) only do that bonus damage to those 3 units? That seems absurd because the times facing those units are so rare that the multipliers might as well not exist.

I don’t even have warchiefs. I play with asian dynasties. So would I even be affected? Thank you!

Yes, that is correct. Light Infantry represents “lesser cavalry” (cavalry-like infantry units). All units with a multiplier against actual Cavalry also have a lesser multiplier against Light Infantry.
