Mounted Gunners

Men with Arquebuses and mounted on horses.

Running about and shooting is a strange tactic, but one that works. Unlike bow armed cavalry, who shoot while moving, these men should ride up to the enemy, stop, shot, then retreat, reload and repeat. Should not be used in melee or threatened with archer fire, and their best bet if enemy cavalry are charging towards them is to shoot then run! These warriors are only recruitable by the Tokugawa Clan.
