Somewhat inaccurate but capable of firing a powerful shot, the noise and smoke from these handguns can demoralise enemy soldiers.
Handguns are the earliest, most primitive type of hand-held firearm, and consist of a short metal barrel fixed to a long wooden handle. They are inaccurate, take a while to reload, and are somewhat unsafe for the person firing them. Nevertheless they fire with quite a lot of power and the smoke and noise can demoralise soldiers. Well trained and well armoured this company is a powerful short range company.
