Dragoons Matchlocks?
« on: September 22, 2020, 11:43:17 PM »
Apologies if this has been asked before

Dragoons in the late European lists seem to keep MM long after the accompanying infantry become FM.

Is this a reflection of their actual weaponry or is it a classification thing to prevent their shooting from being too effective?

Hi Martin

I will check with Geoff as this area is more his period

also apologies for delays in answering but teaching in a busy comprehensive school under covid is somewhat challenging

take care

No problem and no rush at all.

Will be working on a 9 Years War army shortly (couple of other projects to finish first).

Also working in a comprehensive high school although for us in New South Wales the holidays start in a couple of days!
