Mounted Jagers NTW Icon
Mounted Jagers are a type of mounted infantry in Napoleon: Total War.


As mounted skirmishers these men harass the enemy and screen the main body of an army.

Along with their horses, initiative, aggression and pace mark these men out from other infantry. Mounted Jagers carry standard smoothbore, muzzle-loading muskets, but they do not rely on massed volley fire: they deliberately aim at individuals within the enemy ranks. This unsporting and selective fire can be delivered on foot or from horseback. It can disrupt enemy formations or drive off enemy skirmishers. These men are trained to shoot, not fight in hand-to-hand battles, and will be worsted in a melee.

Hessian mercenary Captain Johann Ewald was a field commander of the Jager corps and a prolific writer. He documented his life as a soldier during the American Revolution and created maps of the areas he spent time in, with detailed information about the placement of troops and fortifications. Ewald was the son of a bookseller and began his military career at the age of sixteen, quickly attaining the rank of captain and given command of a group of Jagers. After taking part in several key battles during the American Revolution, it became apparent that Ewald had progressed as far as his social class would allow and he decided to join the Danish army, where he was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel.

General InformationEdit

Available to Sweden in the mid-late game thanks to their high building requirement, mounted jagers are mounted infantry, who trade the advantage of having larger than average regiment sizes and the ability to fire with poorer melee, defense, charging and morale stats than most other cavalry. Mounted jagers are statistically identical to Mounted Nizam-I Cedit, but unlike Mounted Nizam-I Cedit, mounted jagers are not resistant to heat fatigue. Of all the missile cavalry, mounted jagers are tied with the Mounted Nizam-I Cedit for have arguably the best killing power at range with the best accuracy and reloading skill, but are poorer in melee than Russian Mounted Rifles and Spanish Mounted Cazadores, and are overall statistically inferior to French Chasseurs à Cheval but have more men per regiment.
