These irregulars are expert skirmishers, but can also give foes a nasty shock in close combat.
Panduks are in many ways the Ottoman equivalent of the Austrian Pandours. Indeed men might find themselves serving both sides during their lives. Pandours were irregulars, employed to act as Brigands in attacking enemy lines of supply. The Bosnian Panduks performed much the same duties and were recruited among ex-solders of many armies. It was quite possible to find men in the ranks that had once worn Austrian, Russian and Ottoman uniforms. What united them was their Bosnian nationality: unlike other conquests in the Balkans the Ottomans left the territorial extent of Bosnia unchanged. They wiped out the aristocracy but left the people's sense of identity and place untouched.
Bosnian Panduks are skirmishers with average ranged capabilities but unusually good melee statistics. When compared to other irregulars in the Ottoman roster, Bosnian Panduks have slightly better ranged characteristics than Azzars, and far better melee capabilities. However, they are inferior to Haydut Irregulars in terms of accuracy and reloading skill. As they are some of the only DLC units that can be recruited in an Military Governor's Encampment, they may be accessed near-immediately.
Unusually for irregular troops, Bosnian Panduks have access to Improved Fougasse when stationary on the campaign map for more than two turns.
