King's Royal Regiment of New York (ETW Unit)
This loyalist regiment is made up of line infantrymen who fire mass volleys into the main body of an enemy to break them. Once their ammunition is spent or the enemy is sufficiently weakened, they can fix bayonets and deliver a decisive charge. Because these men fight in close formation, they are vulnerable to long-range attacks by artillery and skirmishers, but they can counter cavalry charges by moving to a square formation.
The Kings Royal Regiment of New York was a misleading name for a regiment that was never actually stationed in New York. In fact the men spent a great deal of time in Montreal. The unit was originally comprised of colonists fleeing "patriot" or rebel persecution and in that time they proved to be a very effective raiding party. This may have been thanks to the Native American Warriors who often accompanied them in action. These warriors were led by their own chiefs, and the number attached to the regiment would vary in size depending on the campaign.
