Mountain Troops are skirmisher units in Empire: Total War. They are exclusive to Norway.

DescriptionEdit

These lightly-equipped men are hardy enough to operate effectively on a snow-bound battlefield.

Though they fight on foot, the skis with which these men are equipped allow them a greater range of operation in winter than ordinary troops. Their knowledge of their snowbound environment is a valuable asset which can be used to great advantage.

The mountainous terrain of Scandinavia, shrouded in wintry conditions for much of each year, serves to severely restrict the mobility of conventional troops. The local populace have adapted to these challenges in a number of ways, perhaps the most significant of which is their use of skis. With skis, a man can travel for many miles in the time, while a walking man would exhaust himself blundering a few hundred yards through the snow.

Lightly-equipped mountain or winter specialists give a commander many more options about where to attack in this kind of terrain. Ski troopers excel at a hit-and-run style of warfare, ideal for harassing and isolating an enemy. Able to travel surprising distances in a short space of time, they will attack an enemy from an unexpected quarter, fading away before an effective pursuit can be organised.

General InformationEdit

Along with Clansmen, Miquelets and Race-Built Galleons, Mountain Troops are some of the only units unique to a minor faction.

Despite possessing unique sprites and descriptions, Mountain Troops sadly cannot appear in the Grand Campaign without modding. They require a Barracks or better to be built in the region of Norway, but this is not possible as Norway is a minor region.
