Kings German Legion Dragoons are a type of mounted infantry in Napoleon: Total War.

DescriptionEdit

These heavy cavalrymen can be rushed to critical areas on the battlefield to provide powerful support.

When mounted, these troops can either use their deadly heavy swords in close combat or break enemy line formations with a powerful charge. Their horses allow them to reposition quickly to counter enemy moves, quickly lending firepower to beleaguered comrades. However, they have to dismount before firing their carbines. They sometimes need to be kept on a tight rein by a commander, because their eagerness for battle can sometimes become recklessness.

In 1807, the Danes refused naval support to the British. The British, for their part, feared the Danes would support the French, and so part of the King’s German Legion marched to Denmark. On the road to Copenhagen, the 1st King’s German Light Dragoons learned that there was an arsenal in the fortress of Friederickswerk. Despite having only a single squadron to hand, Captain Krauchenberg, the dragoon’s commander, sent a message demanding the fortress’ surrender. He claimed that an army of 10,000 was on the way. His enormous fib worked, and the KGL Dragoons secured an impressive haul of enemy guns and ammunition, just as daylight revealed their actual numbers! By then, it was too late for the hapless Danes.

General InformationEdit

Similarly to other Kings German Legion troops, Kings German Legion Dragoons are slightly better than their British Dragoon counterparts, with slightly better attack, defense, charge bonus, and morale. Otherwise, they function identically to dragoons: heavy cavalry that are able to dismount and use their carbines as undersized infantry regiments.
