10th Hussars are a type of mounted infantry in Napoleon: Total War and The Peninsular Campaign. They are available to Great Britain with the Imperial Eagle Pack DLC, which was available for free with the standard boxed edition of the game. They were also originally a free community award when registering to the official forums.

DescriptionEdit

Hussars are light cavalry, fast moving and useful for scouting ahead of an army.

These superb horsemen can be used as a screen for the main army, or for strategic scouting to locate the enemy. Hussar speed makes them ideal for targeting skirmishers and artillery: enemies have little chance to escape if hussars are sent against them. Hussars are armed with curved sabres, and can acquit themselves well in melee or during a charge, although they do not fare well against disciplined infantry or heavy cavalry.

Historically, hussars of all nations enjoyed the freebooting attitude of the Hungarian originals, and acted independently of the main army as much as they could. This was useful, because they could be sent out to do long patrols or reconnaissance, and possibly a little plundering. Their high-spirited approach to war was matched by their popinjay uniforms, some of the gaudiest ever to have been worn into battle. Hussar arrogance, however, was well deserved: in 1806 some 500 French hussars bluffed a 6,000-strong Prussian garrison at Stettin into surrendering the fortress there.

General InformationEdit

The 10th Hussars are the only missile cavalry in Great Britain's roster. They compare most similarly to the French Chasseurs à Cheval, with a better charge bonus but poorer defence and shooting capabilities. The 10th Hussars do, however, have the best firing range of all cavalry capable of mounted firing, being equal to most foot skirmishers. As missile cavalry the 10th Hussars add valuable flexibility to the cavalry arm of a British army, effectively engaging in hit and run tactics. However, they have poorer melee stats than dedicated melee cavalry and fare poorly in protracted engagements. Like other missile cavalry, their risk of inflicting friendly fire is high, particularly when used in conjunction with other cavalry, so micromanagement is key to using them successfully.

In addition to being available in the standard version of Napoleon: Total War in Great Britain's Europe campaign, the 10th Hussars are also present in The Peninsular Campaign.
