Dragoons of the 18th century are a ranged Cavalry unit, armed with a short-musket in American Conquest that is recruitable by all European factions. They are usually trained at the fortress after researching Purchase European flint fuses for Dragoons.

The 18th-century Dragoons of the Germans and Portuguese are trained at their stables and can be trained without researching this technology.

Usage[edit | edit source]

One of the main tasks of Cavalry, in general, is spreading fear so that the lines of the enemy dissolve into nothing. Having access to both of the things that most units fear the most (Horses and firearms) makes them optimal at fulfilling that task.

Their improved movement speed compared to 17th C. Dragoons and their high bonus damage on kill (+20) makes them excellent at chasing down huge swaths of units, while constantly spreading fear.

Their decent range and ability to reload while moving makes them also a viable option for performing hit-and-run tactics.
