Nizam-I Cedit Infantry are a type of line infantry in Napoleon: Total War.


These troops of the Ottoman “new model” army are equipped in the latest western European fashion.

The Nizam-I Cedit infantry are a mixture of traditional Ottoman military ideas and western discipline. They have kept the tradition of Turkish bravery and blended it with the drills and formal tactics practiced by European armies. This includes adopted their Western-style uniforms and bayonets. This makes them effective against enemy cavalry, but they remain vulnerable to artillery fire and the sniping of skirmishers.

The Nizam-I Cedit was the first westernised infantry in the Ottoman Empire. By the late 18th century the Ottoman army was struggling against modern forces. The janissaries, the Ottoman’s shock troops, had become corrupted and ineffective. This forced Selim III (1761-1808) to establish a “new model” army with help from French military advisors. Though the Nizam-I Cedit proved a success in battle, the corps was disbanded in the aftermath of the Janissary revolt that deposed Selim III.

General InformationEdit

Along with Beylik Janissary Musketeers, Nizam-I Cedit infantry are one of two types of line infantry available to the Ottoman Empire. Compared to Beylik Janissary Musketeers, Nizam-I Cedit Infantry are superior in every category except melee attack, but are correspondingly somewhat more expensive. Compared to the standard line infantry of other factions, the Nizam-I Cedit Infantry have superior ranged and melee capabilities. However, they are more expensive. In the Europe Campaign, Nizam-I Cedit Infantry may only be trained in the Balkan regions. Outside of the Ottoman Empire's own turf, only inferior troops may be trained.

Like all Ottoman units, Nizam-I Cedit Infantry are resistant to heat fatigue, making them immune to heat attrition and giving them a stamina advantage in desert battlefields. They only have this trait in the Europe campaign and Battle scenarios, and are some of the few Ottoman units to not benefit from resistance to heat fatigue in the Egyptian Campaign.
