Nizam-I Cedit Light Infantry are a type of skirmiser in Empire: Total War.

DescriptionEdit

Fighting in formal order with tight control and disciplined fire is a new idea for Turkish forces; the traditional method has usually involved heavily armed and very brave men hurling themselves pell-mell at the enemy. The nizam-I cedit fight just as bravely, but with much more organisation. This “new model” army is such a break with the past that it has even adopted Western-style military dress for the most part.

Historically, the Nizam-I Cedit reforms were made vital by the repeatedly poor performance of the Ottoman armies against the Russians. The Empire’s inability to defend itself against a growing Slavic threat, and European predatory moves, was the reason why Turkey became the “sick man of Europe”. The French Revolutionary Republic (anxious for any allies at the time) provided much of the starting expertise that the Ottomans required for retraining their army in modern tactics and methods. The process was not without problems, though. The janissaries resented their loss of privileges and position and eventually the corps had to be disbanded.

General InformationEdit

The Nizam-I Cedit Light Infantry are the first true light infantry available to the Ottomans, and are a significant upgrade from Azzars and hillmen. They have poorer accuracy but better defensive skill than Light Infantry, their European counterparts. Unlike Light Infantry, Nizam-I Cedit Light Infantry do not require Light Infantry Doctrine to train. However, they may still benefit from it as they can utilize Light Infantry Behavior once unlocked.
