Belgium shares some similarities with the United Netherlands in terms of units: the two are the only factions that may recruit Dutch Flanquers, a type of light infantry, and Carabiniers, heavy cavalry with the unusual attribute (for a cavalry unit) of being resistant to morale shocks. The rest of Beligum's roster is unremarkable, with a small selection of line infantry, militia, and grenadiers. The Belgian unit roster lacks elite infantry and skirmishers. 

Belgium has the standard artillery and naval roster, lacking some of the heavier ships France and Great Britain have.
