Standard bearers or Flag bearers are morale-boosting support units in American Conquest that can be added to Formation-Squads to boost their morale, attack damage, and defense. Standard bearers exist in two different variants:
The Flagbearer of the 17th and 18th century are practically the same unit, the only difference is their cost and the types of Squads they can be added to.
All European factions except Russia have access to the 17th-century Standard bearer.
All European factions have access to the 18th-century Standard bearer.
The British Standard-bearers can be seen carrying a dagger even though they don't use any weapon ingame.
