General Information Edit
In the tutorial, this faction makes a small appearance as it briefly declares war on France. The player is prompted to blockade its port, forcing it to sue for peace.
Sardinia's first major appearance in the game is in the Italian Campaign (where it is named Piedmont-Sardinia), where it is France's first main target. It controls most of the western half of the map. France is prompted to attack and conquer Turin, Piedmont's capital. If the French player succeeds in capturing it, Piedmont-Sardinia becomes France's protectorate and first ally. While Piedmont-Sardinia has a fairly large number of territories, most of them are nearly completely defenceless--the A.I prefers to concentrate troops at its capital. On the highest difficulties, Piedmont-Sardinia may violate its protectorate agreement and declare hostilities with France once again later in the campaign. In the multiplayer version of the game, no mission is issued for making Piedmont-Sardinia sue for peace, and some of its territories are instead given to other, multiplayer exclusive factions.
In the Europe Campaign, Sardinia (once again named Kingdom of Sardinia) only possesses the island of Sardinia. It usually builds a dockyard at its only port slot, so one cannot normally trade with this faction. It is generally very passive, and rarely attacks other factions. Its lack of allies, and its gold mine, make it a lucrative target for annexation.
In the tutorial, the Kingdom of Sardinia has a large roster of ships that it almost never has access to, as well as line infantry. It is nearly impossible to see these as the role they play in the tutorial is very minimal.
In the Italian Campaign, Piedmont-Sardinia only has access to line infantry, militia, and light artillery. While its roster is nominally larger than this, building constraints of the campaign forces them to make do with the most basic units.
In the European Campaign, Piedmont-Sardinia has a substantial roster of ships, and also gains grenadiers, hussars, dragoons, and more varied artillery.
- The flag used by Piedmont-Sardinia is the naval war ensign of the Kingdom of Sardinia used in the 18th century.
