These elite marksmen are trained in wilderness warfare and taught to survive in harsh conditions.

Rangers are used for scouting and raiding missions far beyond the skills of ordinary men. Their ranks are mostly drawn from frontiersmen already hardened to living in the wilderness and capable of hiding in a variety of terrain types. Excellent marksmen, they excel at ranged combat but suffer in prolonged melee attacks. They are trained to conceal themselves and fight in loose formation, but if caught in the open by line infantry or cavalry they are likely to sustain heavy casualties.

Historically, Fraser’s Rangers was a British brigade formed in Canada and composed of General Fraser’s 24th Regiment of Foot, with light infantry and grenadier units from Sir Guy Carleton’s Montreal force. These men took part in a number of key battles during the American Revolution, most notably the Battle of Bennington where they sustained heavy losses. They also fought at Saratoga, where they came up against Major General Morgan and his 500 elite riflemen. Morgan’s men were attacked by the British advanced company, but Fraser and his rangers drove them back, allowing the advanced company to retreat.
