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.

Yeah, by the Napoleonic Wars period, armor had all but vanished from battlefields, a few helmets worn by small, select groups not withstanding (if my memory serves).

There is plate armour, for the cuirassiers of some nations. You can see them in the screenshots here on Moddb if you look back far enough.
