Dragoons

Comparison of Dragoons.

Dragoons are seen in Mount&Blade: With Fire & Sword. Dragoons are employed directly (in name) by the Polish Commonwealth and Kingdom of Sweden. All nations (except the Crimean Khanate) have one type of mounted firearm wielding troop.

Dragoons wield carbines and relatively good armour. They are used to skirmish the enemy and fire from range, whilst running if an enemy chases them, making them very effective against infantry.

Even though Muscovite Tsardom and Cossack Hetmanate do not have dragoons, they have units that use late dragoon tactics, Moscow Reiters and Watchmen, for the Muscovite Tsardom and Cossack Hetmanate respectively.

Most nations in the Western World raised at least one dragoon regiment between the 17th and 19th centuries.

Tactical Importance Edit

The tactical importance of dragoons in With Fire & Sword is much like horse archers to Crimean Khanate (or Khergit Khanate). Harassing the enemy with gunfire, and when the enemy threatens them, they just ride away. This, however, has become a less potent strategy in With Fire & Sword due to more infantry wielding pikes and guns.

One strategy to use their mobility, and still have all the benefits of not riding in to your enemy in battle, is to build your army out of only dragoons (or mounted ranged soldiers) and dismounting in the beginning of all battles. Downsides are only restricted to weakness to cavalry, and less athletics due to them being horsemen. Take up positions on a hill or on a field with long distance to your enemy, and if possible in front of a river. It is recommended using fire at my command, to make sure they will be able to fire when the enemy is very near.
