These veterans are versatile light infantry, adept at both skirmishing and fighting in the line.

Able to fight in loose skirmish formation or fire a massed volley when organised in line, the Jägers are an adaptable response to enemy tactics. Although their experience in battle means they have good firepower, the Jägers’ flexibility as a unit has its disadvantages. They are not as accurate as other skirmishers and will not always beat enemy line infantry when firing in volley. They also lack the ability to form square, which leaves them vulnerable to cavalry charges.

During 1804-1813, Russia was fighting on two fronts: holding off Napoleon’s troops and fighting a war for territory against the Persians. The Russo-Persian War was an attempt by both sides to consolidate their claims to the same land. Russia was attempting to expand the empire and Persia was attempting to hold on to lands they always considered their own. Because the Russians were also committed against the French, they could not provide a large force to fight the Persians, and instead had to rely on superior technology and tactics to gain an advantage.
