Zaporozhian Cavalrymen are high level Cossack horseman, they are useful against any lighter cavalry and infantry without spears. They are, however, a lot weaker on foot than one would expect, so be sure not to round them up against ranged infantry with higher-power firearms.


These units are best against lighter cavalry, except Dragoon-like cavalry who may shoot down their horses before they get in reach. Any infantry lacking firearms and polearms will also be vulnerable to these cavalry. Using a lure to aim the firearms and pikes away from the Zaporozhian cavalry may allow an effective charge to commence, provided your lure isn't obliterated.

Making up part of Cossack Hetmanate scouting parties, they show reasonable power against all kinds of units. However, with all cavalry, if they are surrounded by infantry they will quickly fall.

The heaviest and most expensive unit of Cossack Hetmanate, they lack both lances and armors of true heavy cavalry, wearing mail at best (and cloth at worst!) and riding light but fast Coursers. On the positive side, they have excellent firearms (the best Miquelet Carbine in the game) and can be used as heavy Dragoons.
