'Lo,

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.

At the time being, i am sad to realize that i am as impatient as i am amazed by this mod, for the detail of this mod is not to be spoken by man and his simple tounge, and only gods can truly express with their languegue how wonderfull this looks. But i am far to impatient has now lost my faith in this mod, although i defintaly play it if... WHEN it comes out, but right now, it is too unbearable for me. ;(

He already has his own self-made ranking system which is 120% more logical, and historically accurate, than freelancer ever was.
