Hungarian Grenadiers (NTW unit)
Hungarian Grenadiers are the best grenadiers the world has ever seen!
Recruited in Hungary, these men have an imposing size and impressive skills that are seldom matched by grenadiers of other nations. The Hungarian Grenadiers are a sight to behold on the battlefield in their magnificent uniforms. Not only are they experts in melee and impressive on the charge, but they also display extraordinary marksmanship skills. Their only real vulnerability is artillery fire and, possibly, the danger of being charged from the rear by heavy cavalry. Even under tough circumstances their courage still inspires nearby comrades and encourages them to battle on as well.
Historically, military enlistment in Austrian service was originally for life, but by 1757 limited service was introduced in the hopes of attracting better recruits and thereby improving the calibre of the soldiers. Men were allowed to enlist for a maximum of six years, or for the duration of any hostilities, whichever was longer. The Hungarian units in the Austrian army were raised by feudal levy. Although the Austrians had an integrated army, and shared a Hapsburg monarch with Hungary, the two nations remained separate kingdoms.
