  • Hindu indian infantry icon.pngA sword is an honourable weapon for any warrior. The man who carries one must demonstrate his courage if he is to cut down his foe.


    Although a sword, no matter what its design, may appear outdated next to a musket, it has one great advantage: it never needs loading. A truly skilled swordsman will never want for employment, and he is an intimidating sight to many regular musket-armed soldiers.

    Units of swordsmen are also easier to handle tactically on a battlefield. A general does not have to make fine judgements about when to hold or give fire: he need only send his men forward to do their killing work at the right time. Once committed, they will keep fighting until death or victory comes.


    Hindu Warriors fight in the style of their ancestors using a sword and shield, in practice they are largely useless and a player should never recruit them if it all possible. Outdated at the start of the game they only get worse as the game goes on, as soon as Line Infantry start getting Fire By Rank these units should all be disbanded to save upkeep costs. In regards to their stats they are not too impressive, they are barely an improvement over their musket wielding counterparts although they are cheaper to recruit and maintain.
