Saxony's standard infantry armed with machine pistols. Effective against other infantry

Saxon Stormtroopers are basic infantry units trained by the Saxony Empire. They are equipped with a modern submachine gun effective at medium range.

General Description[]

The Fatherland's finest, or so they claim to be. These men of a once-proud nation sign up in droves, but many are also conscripted to serve the country's best interests. Their uniforms are very fancy with tall, shiny leather boots, a leather cuirass, a dark blue uniform and trousers underneath, and a distinct pickelhaub helmet bearing the golden Saxony wolf emblem.

Equipped with cutting-edge technology, these soldiers are armed with a machine pistol (also called a submachine gun). It has a rapid rate of fire and medium range, making these units very versatile and giving them good damage over time provided they can survive a protracted firefight. They work well with machine guns, letting them pin the enemy down while adding their own hail of bullets to the mix. They also benefit greatly from being able to have medics in the field to support them.

Stormtroopers have less of a weakness compared to other infantry, being better in close quarters than Polanian Riflemen while outranging Rusviet Vanguards. But they are still outranged by riflemen and will get picked off quickly if they can't get in range quick enough, while suffering against vanguards if they cannot keep them at arm's length. And like the other infantry, they are vulnerable to machine guns and do almost nothing against even light armor. If supported by armor, however, they can ramp up a lot of damage against their enemies.

Trivia[]

  • The Saxon stormtroopers are inspired by the Stoßtruppen formations pioneered and utilized to great effect by the Imperial German Army during the late stages of World War 1
  • The in-game weapon resembles the German MP18 submachine gun, the first true submachine gun adopted by a major military and used in combat.
