Russia banner

The banner of Russia.

Russia, or Rossiyskaya Imperiya, is a faction in the Mount&Blade: Warband downloadable content, Napoleonic Wars.


Ever since the Muscovite Tsardom transformed into the Russian Empire, expansionist ambitions has formed her foreign policy. Having successfully contested Sweden, Prussia and the Ottoman Empire for lands, St. Petersburg has now reached another level of ambition. The young Russian monarch, Alexander I, cares little for the new lands. His ambitions are much higher than that - to defeat Napoleon himself and “save Europe” from French tyranny.

Russian armies have marched against Napoleon twice, and both times they were repelled with heavy casualties on both sides. The third clash, which is about to come in 1812, will be completely different. Belorussian forests and endless Russian steppes are quite different from the fields of Europe with their well-developed road networks and numerous villages. And the Russian peasant will not allow himself to be exploited by an enemy army - instead he will rather grab his axe and escape to the nearest forest. With the forest behind them filled with partisans, and the Russian army endlessly retreating in front of them, the French can look forward to a truly unique experience...
