  • Siberian rangers icon.pngThese elite light infantrymen are trained in wilderness warfare and taught to survive in harsh conditions.


    Rangers are used for scouting and raiding missions far beyond the skills of ordinary men. Their ranks are mostly drawn from frontiersmen already hardened to living in the wilderness, as their experience making them ideal for further training. The wild nature of their environment is reflected in the unconventional tactics they are taught, and they are given some leeway where formal army discipline is concerned.

    Historically, rangers were employed by the British army and were used in the hostile environments of North America during the French and Indian War. They would carry out long distance winter raids using crude snowshoes to travel. The most famous and revered of all rangers were the “Rogers’ Rangers”, named for their commanding officer, Robert Rogers. The traditions of Rogers’ Rangers are carried on today by the US Army Rangers, although the modern unit owes its existence to the Second World War experience of US troops fighting alongside British commandos and a reformed force in the Korean War.


    Siberian Hunters are a unique Russian form of light infantry, they should be used much the same as standard light infantry as screens for your army. Their greater range mean they are perfect for harassing Line Infantry regiments unmolested along with setting up ambushes. Their weaknesses include small unit numbers and terrible melee capabilities, Siberian Hunters differ from them in various ways; they are capable of holding their own in melee against units such as Line Infantry for short periods of time, they also do not require any technology to be researched to recruit them. They are more expensive than standard Light Infantry along with a much smaller recruitment range.
