The Seymen is an infantry marksman of the Crimean Khanate.

Unlike other marksmen units in the game, Seymen wear a chain mail vest and a chain mail misiurka, which gives them good protection and makes them more resilient in melee combat. They are armed with a good musket, saber and shield. Despite their good armor and weapons, they are not as accurate or as good fighters as the Janissary unless they are reinforced with cavalry.


TacticsEdit

Like the Janissary, Seymen work best in firing lines and may benefit from mixing in archers to provide suppressing fire. They should be accompanied by others, as a cavalry charge (as with any other unit without a spear) could be an expensive loss of decent soldiers.

They wear decent armour and helmets, and are therefore formidable foes. They are good shooters, but lack in closer range. They are most effective in a firing line with archers to add suppressing fire.


TriviaEdit

By the mid 17th century, the Crimean Khanate was very outdated in its weaponry and tactics. While every nation have drilled their armies in the tactics of pike and shot, the Muslim Khanate still cling to their ancient composite bows, lances, shields and sabers that go back to the time of Genghis Khan. When Crimea was threatened by the Christian invaders, the Ottoman Empire sent its Janissaries and their musket technology to improve the efficiency of the Khan's armed forces. The Seymen was the first Crimean unit to be wield a musket and to only fight on foot.
