Portuguese Arquebusiers (M2TW unit)
Effective unit, capable of giving a volley with their guns, then following up with swords.
|Primary weapon:||Arquebus (Missile)|
|Weapon attributes:||Armour piercing|
|Secondary weapon:||Sword (Melee)|
Although primitive, the arquebus is able to inflict considerable damage and panic when used at close range, and can penetrate almost any armour. Portuguese arquebusiers are noted for their uncouth and uncompromising attitude, and are quite happy to follow up a volley with their swords.
