DescriptionEdit

Militia are often poorly equipped and trained, but are ideal for maintaining public order.

Men in the militia rarely expect to be sent into battle. It is their lot to act as reserves, or local law enforcers. As a result, if they do find themselves on a battlefield, they should be expected to run away, and not handle their weaponry with any great proficiency. Militia may appear useless, then, but they are cheap to maintain and as plentiful as any bureaucrat could want.

In 1806, despite previous unfortunate experiences with disgruntled peasants, the Russian state recruited 600,000 serfs into the “opelchenie”, a militia. Training was basic, and weaponry similarly simple: the opelchenie were given pikes. After the French invasion of 1812 the opelchenie was no longer limited to serfs, and another 200,000 recruits joined in a national wave of patriotism. Some of this new cohort of serfs brought their own pitchforks and shovels as weapons.

General InformationEdit

Militia are the standard militia type unit available to most factions: cheap, quickly trained infantry that are poor at fighting but are useful garrisoning units owing to their low cost and upkeep and also their garrisoning bonus. Among the major, playable factions in the campaigns, the only faction that trains this unit is France; those factions that don't have militia all have a similar equivalent, however.

For more information, see Militia (Unit Type).

Portugal has superior militia when compared to most other factions in terms of ranged combat, but are more expensive. Differences are listed below (identical stats are not shown). In The Peninsular Campaign, Great Britain have access to units named Portuguese Militia, which are statistically and visually identical to militia fielded by Portugal.
