Dragoons Guards are a type of mounted infantry in Napoleon: Total War.

DescriptionEdit

These mounted men are a useful mobile force who excel at melee.

Dragoon Guards are trained to fight on horseback and foot. They each carry a sabre and carbine musket but are only capable of firing when dismounted. Their slightly impetuous nature makes them less effective than other more disciplined cavalry units but their flexibility and skill in close-combat makes them incredibly valuable. Having the option to unleash these men at key strategic points on the field of battle can easily provide the upper hand over an ill-prepared enemy.

Dragoons were often considered to be inferior soldiers by “proper” regiments of horse: not really cavalrymen with class, but jumped-up infantry. They did not need particularly good horses because they did not fight on horseback, so they were cheaper to equip and pay than regular cavalry. In the British Army the designation “dragoon guards” was used as a face-saving measure when “real” cavalry units were converted to dragoons; despite becoming a lower class unit, they kept their slightly elitist cavalry attitudes. The British Army still has dragoon guard units and they now use light tanks in reconnaissance and security roles.

General InformationEdit

Dragoon Guards are high-quality British cavalry, with strong all-round stats. They are most similar to the Royal Scots Greys, with slightly worse melee and charge bonuses but slightly cheaper cost and a higher unit cap.

Like other dragoons, dragoon guards can dismount and fight as infantry, but they are mediocre in this regard due to their poor number of men per regiment and low accuracy and reloading skills. They are best used as heavy cavalry.
