The reason they don't have the stats of skirmishers is because I do believe they kill infantry and cavalry both, from range, on horseback. You can hit and run much more effectively with mounted riflemen than with skirmishers. Hussars cost much more than musketeers, because there is a horse.

Also, that comment was written in 2009. I don't think he'll be responding lol


Well, better late then never, right? lol

The Mounted Rifleman will be dropped as unique unit of the Americans in favor of a new shared elite unit, trainable from the University. In return Americans will get another cavalry unit, generally less than other civs though. The US continental army had very very few cavalry troops and mainly relied on State Militias supplemented few foreign elites.

That seems fair enough. However, i'd like to suggest to underpower America a bit, either limit their gatherer build limit (with all the different types, you can get 180-190 not exactly sure) or make their military units not train instantly. With the coin to food trade, 190 gatherers, instant training units and a good player, a player of the same skill will lose every time.

What do you mean as new shared elite unit? Does that mean that there will be other guys that use the mounted rifleman?
