I would say, Austria can be quite strong in late game. The "cloning" of grenzers is awesome and instantly with the right cards, plus they are super cheap with inhabers card. Only 100 resources. If you back them up with line infantry they are to stop. Early game, well, they are not too powerful.

problem is, if you use the "Inhabers"-card you might run out of wood...
And the real strength of Austria is still in their instant cavalry...
Placing some keeps around the enemy and training cavalry there is great... Devil

Massing one kind type of army is uselees, even with DHH, having said this, cavalry only for austrians is no good. Like they said, pikemen counter that very cheaply. Plus in late game, fortifications are pretty useless. If they send 10+ sappers you are done. The true strength of austria is grenzers cloning and line infantry. The thing is, if the enemy lets you reach to that point. If he does, you can win almost 75% of the time. With Inhabers, you can concentrate all your villies in food and wood. And since wood cost is only 25, its not that much, even in long games. Also bear in mind that to age up, you need wood instead of coin. So you are already getting those resources, and it safes the time you need to do the transition to gold for troops. The only thing you need to consider is your siege unit. I personally find the grenadiers and sappers more useful for austria then the cannons.

just to mention: dragoons are ranged and so > pikemen! Of course infantry untis are important too but instant cav is always a nice thing!
@wood: And what happens if you are playing on a dessert map? Just a few trees...
Using the Inhabers card is stupid in 66% of the games!

...most of the time. I once massed 150 petards and attacked the enemy base from all sides at once. It wasn't too useless Devil
