Today we'll take a look at Chevau-Legers Polonais de la Garde Imperiale, some the most elite cavalry in the French army.

Originally created in 1807 by Napoleon to serve as an elite bodyguard recruited from the Polish nobility and landowning classes, they were unquestionably the most famous cavalry regiment of the era and frequently cited as one of the greatest of all time. The Polish Chevau-Legers proved their incredible aptitude for combat time after time at several of the period's major battles.

Their most famous exploit was probably at the 30 November, 1808 battle of Somosierra Pass, where the Spanish had set up a desperate last attempt to halt the French march on Madrid. A single squardon of the Polish Chevau-Legers charged the Spanish army, artillery and all, head on and captured all four of their batteries. Though half the squadron was killed or wounded in the charge, they carved a permanent name for themselves in the annals of history.

In the 1809 war against Austria, they saw action at several of the major battles of the Austrian front, including Aspern-Essling and Wagram. The most noteworthy battles of the war.

In the mod they'll be available to French officers recruiting in Poland. They were only armed with lances (thus their better known name, the 'Polish Lancers') after the War of the Fifth Coalition, so they serve as light cavalry in the mod.

Not sure if you saw my reply.

I didn't mean that they held the guns up straight in this mod, I was only asking if you could change it from the way it is in the DLC.

Anyways, as I see that you have. It's great! Everything looks amazing! Can't wait.

And do you think this will be released before the end of the year?

Right, but I can't change it from the way it is in the DLC since it was never that way in the mod.

I think the confusion results from the use of the word 'change' where it probably shouldn't be.

Also, Will troop organization be improved? is it possible that we'll have more than just ten groups to command considering that so many regiments shouldn't just be mixed?

A small idea, in many game formations like Wedge, Square, Ranks , shieldwall are all common but you can add more formations like light behaviour, diamond Formation, spear brace formation, Phalanx Formation(Pikeman),etc. And a small change can be made. In most games The Cavalry formations like Wedge, Diamond etc gets deactivated when given command Charge pls change it else i am eagerly waiting for the game and i will donate u for it
