L'Aigle is a singleplayer and multiplayer total-conversion mod for Mount & Blade: Warband. Set during the Napoleonic Wars, L'Aigle will recreate the age of blackpowder warfare.
A French sailor in the 1808 service uniform. Unlike their British equivalents, French sailors were fully militarised (British sailors belonged to their ships and were not employed by the Navy) and were issued standard uniforms and weapons.
The uniforms, especially the shakoes, were unpopular and considered unfit for sailors, being too soldier-like. A complaint somewhat alleviated in 1811 with the swapping of shakoes for top-hats.
