Forlorn Hope (M2TW Unit)
The 'Verlorene Haufe' or Forlorn Hope as they are known, are comprised of prisoners and volunteers desperate for glory. Their job is to lead the first and usually fatal charge used to break up enemy pike formations. The Forlorn Hope are heavily armoured and wield massive "zweihander" swords. These units are vicious assault troops who can chop a man into bloody pieces.
The Forlorn Hope are a unit, which carry massive, two-handed swords, which can inflict serious hurt upon the enemy. They have high attack and charge and relatively low defence. They wear partial metal plate armour, providing themHwith some protection against missiles. While the Forlorn Hope have a much higher attack than their counterparts the Zwei Handers, they have less armour and defence. While they're cheaper to recruit than the Zwei handers, they have a much higher upkeep cost and they are not as disciplined as the Zwei Handers. They also have half as many men as the Zwei Hander unit.The Forlorn Hope are recruitable from cities, meaning you do not sacrifice coin for military power.
