The Swiss Foot are a type of line infantry in Napoleon: Total War and The Peninsular Campaign.


These men are able to unleash a volley of fire and then go forwards in a decisive bayonet charge.

As line infantry they are a relatively versatile force for their general, and can be relied on to stand and fire, or give a good account of themselves in close combat. They are, of course, vulnerable to artillery fire, and can suffer if left exposed to skirmishers. Against cavalry, they can quickly form square, and then withstand an attack.

The Swiss have a long tradition of serving in foreign armies, as long as the money was there. The saying “No money, no Swiss” dates back to at least the Renaissance, when Swiss mercenaries were regarded as among the best in Europe. When paid, there were no fiercer soldiers. By the Napoleonic era, Swiss units were exclusive to the French army and the Papal Swiss Guard of the Vatican. At the Battle of Berezina, the Swiss covered the French retreat under fire from the Russians, and this brave service was immortalized in the song “Beresinalied”.

General InformationEdit

The Swiss Foot have slightly better reloading than regular Fusiliers of Line, but have slightly worse charging bonuses. The rest of their statistics are identical, except that Swiss Foot are very slightly more expensive to train. 

In the Europe campaign, the Swiss Confederation is initially allied with France. In order to recruit the Swiss Foot, France must acquire the region of Switzerland--either by ending their alliance with them and invading them, or by letting a hostile nation take Switzerland over before reciprocating with an attack. 

In The Peninsular Campaign, Swiss Foot are available from the French capital region of Toulouse after training facilities have been adequately upgraded.


The Swiss Foot has different uniforms, depending on the campaign.
