6th Regiment d’Infanterie Légère Unit Card
The 6th Regiment d’Infanterie Légère are a light infantry unit in Napoleon: Total War. They are available to France with the Heroes of the Napoleonic Wars DLC.


These men are light infantry, adept at harassing the enemy and screening the main army.

These versatile veterans can form a disciplined line to deliver a massed volley, or switch to a loose skirmishing formation to harass and thin out enemy formations. Although their experience in battle means they fire their muskets with a good degree of accuracy, their flexibility also means they lack certain specialised qualities. They are not quite as accurate as other skirmishers nor as devastating as line infantry when firing in volleys. They also lack the ability to form square, which leaves them vulnerable to cavalry charges.

Historically, the 6th Regiment saw action in over forty battles during the Napoleonic War and were awarded seven battle honors for their achievements. Three of these were given for victories over the Austrians at the battles of Marengo, Ulm and Wagram. The loss at Wagram in 1809 was a particularly devastating blow for the Austrians, breaking their national morale and forcing them to sign a peace treaty that resulted in the loss of a large part of their empire.

General InformationEdit

The 6th regiment is statistically identical to Chasseurs in terms of melee statistics and morale, but possess significantly better reloading and accuracy--in fact, they are just shy of being equals to the best light infantry in this regard, Prussian Fusiliers and Portugal's Cazadores. As France's deadliest light infantry, they are able to inflict a good number of casualties at a distance in rapid order. Like all light infantry, however, they fare much more poorly in melee fighting, particularly when charged by cavalry.
