Poor Cossacks are the bulk of any Cossack army. They are light militiamen with no designated armor. However, Cossacks do have carbines, adding a sense of danger to fighting these men in large numbers.

These units are good, reliable infantry capable of bulking up garrisons and adding some suppressing fire against cavalry charges.


At range, the Handmade Firearms of the Cossacks are weaker than the Matchlock Muskets of other militia marksmen. However, Cossacks acquire muskets when they become veterans.

In melee, these units have the same skills as Posad Marksmen.

The only strong tactic for Poor Cossacks is to charge into battle in large numbers. In small numbers, they can be outgunned, cut down, or run over by cavalry, but in large groups they are much less vulnerable. Another tactic is to bulk up garrisons to add musket fire in a battle.
