This mounted company is capable of giving a volley with their improved versions of the arquebus, then following up at the charge with swords.
Taking advantage of improvements in powder that can generate much higher muzzle velocities, this version of the arquebus is able to inflict considerable damage and panic when used at close range, and can penetrate almost any armour. This noisy, smoky and lethal weapon is so intimidating it can cause its targets to run in fear.

  • Royal Officer's Academy
  • Mounted Arquebusiers are recruited in cities after the Pike and Shot event in 1530 where a Royal Officer's Academy has been constructed .
