    The Elite Units of America Downloadable Content (DLC) is only available
    through Steam. Check the DLC page on Steam to purchase and unlock all
    new 15 Elite Units of America in the single player campaign under the
    conditions below. They will also be available in multiplayer and single
    player battle modes, when playing with the appropriate faction.




    The Elite Units of America Downloadable Content for Empire: Total War™
    adds 15 new elite units to the American, British and French factions of
    Empire: Total War. In the last half of the 18th century, the political
    upheaval from thirteen of British Colonies in North America ultimately
    led to the 1776 Declaration of Independence and changed History for
    ever. The 15 units from the Elite Units of America Downloadable Content
    have all played a major part in the American Revolution. Though their
    background owes a lot to European military traditions , their identity
    is tied to the destiny of the United States, and gave these men courage
    and audacity like no other soldier on the battlefields.

    1st Delaware (United States)


    These
    soldiers carry muzzle-loading, smoothbore muskets firing lead balls as
    wide as a man's thumb. These are inaccurate weapons, effective only to
    around 200 paces when fired in volleys. The ability to fire and reload
    with machine-like regularity with comrades falling all around is what
    wins battles; that and an ability to fight in a variety of tactical
    formations. Any enemy foolhardy enough to charge their cavalry at this
    unit while they are in square will find them a tough target. The 1st
    Delaware regiment came into being in 1776 under the supervision of
    Colonel John Haslet; they went on to fight in the Battle of Long Island
    in August of that year. Along with the 1st Maryland Regiment they were
    able to repel the British, allowing Washington and his troops to make a
    safe retreat. The Delaware were then forced to make a daring retreat
    through marshland while escorting 23 prisoners of war. Their action
    during this battle prompted Washington to appoint them his rear guard
    when he strategically withdrew his army from Brooklyn to Manhattan.

    1st Maryland (United States)


    By
    their very nature, line infantry are vulnerable to bombardment from
    artillery and sniping from skirmishers; it takes a special kind of
    courage to stand and carefully fire volleys at the enemy then dispatch
    them with a bayonet charge. Extensive drill, training and battle have
    helped mould these men into soldiers, capable of dealing with the enemy
    on equal terms. Historically, the 1st Maryland regiment was raised to
    protect the province of Maryland and came under the command of Colonel
    William Smallwood. In July 1776 the troops were assigned to the main
    Continental Army and in the months that followed they joined Stirling's
    Brigade. They took part in the Battle of Guildford Courthouse, but it
    was at the Battle of Long Island that they earned their formidable
    reputation. They single-handedly covered the American retreat, holding
    off superior numbers of British regulars.

    2nd Continental Light Dragoons (United States)


    When
    a friendly unit is being harassed by an enemy beyond its fire range,
    these cavalrymen can react immediately, riding to the enemy to counter
    the threat. When mounted they are good in melee, at the charge, and can
    fire their carbines. They are not very effective in close combat on
    foot, leaving themselves vulnerable when acting as melee infantry. The
    2nd Continental Light Dragoons were one of the first cavalry units
    raised in 1776 following Washington's realisation that the war was
    going to be far longer than expected. His original plan was to raise
    3,000 horsemen, but it soon became obvious that paying and equipping
    that many horsemen was beyond the resources of Congress. Instead, four
    small regiments of light dragoons were raised. The 2nd light dragoons
    were commanded by Colonel Elisha Sheldon, who was commemorated for his
    efforts by the citizens of Sheldon, Vermont.

    2nd New York (United States)


    Marching
    or line regiments make up the majority of units in European-pattern
    armies. They are so-called because they form the line of battle, not
    because they deploy in lines. They can also form square, a particularly
    effective tactic against cavalry charges, although this leaves the unit
    incredibly vulnerable to artillery fire and skirmishers. This weakness
    aside, the versatility of a line regiment makes them a valuable
    addition to any force. The 2nd New York regiment was raised in 1775 and
    placed under the command of Colonel Philip van Cortlandt. The van
    Cortlandt family history was already impressive: Philip's great
    grandfather was the first American-born mayor of New York and the
    family name was used for various place names across America. Colonel
    van Cortlandt was promoted to brigadier general following acts of
    valour at the Siege of Yorktown. He lived out his remaining years as a
    politician, eventually dying at the age of 81.

    33rd Foot (Britain)


    The
    33rd Foot are known as "The Pattern" for their stoic professionalism in
    battle; they are able to calmly pick targets and fire on them even
    while skirmishers' shots whiz by their ears, artillery shells explode
    around them and cavalry charges bear down upon them. To guard against
    such devastating enemy charges they can move from line to square
    formation. The 33rd Foot was originally raised in 1702 as the Earl of
    Huntingdon's Regiment of Foot. It was not until 1751, when all
    regiments were numbered rather than taking their general's name, that
    it became the 33rd Foot. They left England for America in May of 1776
    and were part of the force that besieged Charlestown. They joined
    Howe's New York campaign and took part in a number of key battles
    including Brandywine. Despite losses the 33rd Foot were able to break
    the American line, pursuing them for a full 2 miles. The regiment
    eventually became "The Duke of Wellington's", the only unit in the
    British Army named to honour a non-Royal.

    Brunswick Dragoons (Britain)


    Brunswicker
    dragoons are versatile troops; they have a powerful charge that can
    break enemy infantry formations, and can ride to critical spots on the
    battlefield to lend support to beleaguered allies. However, should they
    be pitted against infantry formed in square their charge will fall
    short of the power achieved by heavy cavalry units. They do have the
    advantage of being armed with carbine muskets, but they are trained to
    use these when on foot; dragoons should not be expected to engage in
    close combat effectively when dismounted. The Brunswicker Dragoons (and
    other Brunswick units) left Germany for America under the command of
    Col. Friedrich Riedesel in 1776. When the dragoons arrived in America
    they did so without horses. They were paid as heavy infantryman and
    acted in this capacity for many of the early campaigns. At the Battle
    of Bennington most of the 120 men were either killed or captured,
    dramatically reducing the size of the unit. Those that did survive
    rejoined the main body of British troops after the surrender at
    Saratoga. This under-strength regiment remained in garrison duty in
    Canada until 1783, when it returned to Brunswick.

    Read More











    Hessian Grenadiers (Britain)


    Grenadiers
    see themselves as elite, and usually occupy the place of honour at the
    right of the line. They have every reason to be proud: only large,
    brave men become grenadiers. This size and strength makes them
    impressive and gives them an edge in melee combat. They are vulnerable
    when attacked by heavy cavalry and skirmish troops. This aside,
    grenadiers are dedicated soldiers who will follow orders to the letter.
    Historically, Hessian soldiers were renowned for their skills and
    discipline. This is due, in part, to the harsh penalties imposed upon
    them for any indiscipline. Corporal punishment was a regular
    occurrence, minor offenses often being punished with clubs and cudgels!
    Another popular punishment was 'the gauntlet': a ritualistic beating
    that involved a soldier's comrades gathering in two lines to beat the
    accused as he ran or walked past them. For more serious offences
    Hessian soldiers would be swiftly hanged. This treatment did not make
    them tolerant of any rebellious behaviour in others, including
    civilians.

    Read More











    King's Royal Regiment of New York (Britain)


    This
    loyalist regiment is made up of line infantrymen who fire mass volleys
    into the main body of an enemy to break them. Once their ammunition is
    spent or the enemy is sufficiently weakened, they can fix bayonets and
    deliver a decisive charge. Because these men fight in close formation,
    they are vulnerable to long-range attacks by artillery and skirmishers,
    but they can counter cavalry charges by moving to a square formation.
    The King's Royal Regiment of New York was a misleading name for a
    regiment that was never actually stationed in New York. In fact, the
    men spent a great deal of their time in Montreal. The unit was
    originally comprised of colonists fleeing "patriot", or rebel,
    persecution and in time they proved to be a very effective raiding
    party. This may have been thanks to the Native American warriors who
    often accompanied them in action. These warriors were led by their own
    chiefs, and the number attached to the regiment would vary in size
    depending on the campaign.

    Lee's Legion (United States)


    Fast
    moving and highly skilled, these men are truly skilled horsemen. They
    do not fire their carbines whilst mounted, however, preferring to ride
    men down and dispatch them with cold steel. These impressive collection
    of skills make them ideal for use against artillery and skirmishers.
    However, should they find themselves facing well-disciplined line
    infantry, formed in square, their weaknesses would swiftly become
    evident. Lee's Legion was commanded by Henry 'Light horse' Lee, the
    father of famed Confederate general Robert E. Lee. Henry Lee's first
    commission was as Captain of the Virginia Light Dragoons. During his
    time as a captain he caught the eye of Washington while leading a
    series of successful raids on enemy supply trains. At Paulus Hook, New
    Jersey, he increased his renown by taking 400 British soldiers prisoner
    with the loss of only one of his cavalrymen. This action earned him a
    gold medal, an honour usually reserved for only men of general's rank.

    Morgan's Provisional Rifle Corp (United States)


    Organised
    as light infantry but armed with rifles rather than smoothbore muskets,
    riflemen have every right to see themselves as elite. Chosen for
    initiative and intelligence, they do not need close supervision by
    their officers. These crack shots are trained for ranged combat and
    will be found wanting if they engage in melee. At their best in cover,
    their loose formation makes them a tough target for line infantry, and
    their uniforms allow them to blend into the landscape as they stalk
    their human prey. The men of Morgan's Provisional Rifle Corps were seen
    by many, including George Washington, as elite soldiers; they were well
    acquainted with the use of a rifle and were expert marksmen. This
    exceptional reputation meant they were chosen to accompany Benedict
    Arnold to attack Quebec. The attack began during a blinding snowstorm
    and ended in failure. Morgan did manage to get a few of his men over
    the wall and in to the city, something which no other American achieved.

    Read More











    Pulaski's Legion (United States)


    These
    cavalrymen, armed with lances, have a devastating charge, which is
    especially effective against enemy line infantry. Pulaski's Legion is
    best employed to rush and break the enemy line, and then it should be
    pulled back for another charge before the enemy regains their senses.
    Despite their great initial attack, a wise commander will avoid leaving
    them in melee, as they are extremely vulnerable in prolonged
    close-combat. Pulaski's Legion was created by a Pole, Casmir Pulaski.
    He was forced to flee Poland after being implicated in a plot to kill
    the king; it was during his exile in Paris that Pulaski met Benjamin
    Franklin. Franklin convinced him to aid the emerging American army
    against the British, and Pulaski joined Washington's army just before
    the battle of Brandywine. During the battle he led a scouting mission
    that discovered the British flanking movement. This act alone earned
    him the position of brigadier general of the American cavalry.

    Royal Deux-Ponts Regiment (France)


    Line
    infantry are responsible for holding the line in battle, forming the
    backbone of the army while specialist troops harass and chip away at
    the enemy. Once the enemy is worn down, the regiment can rush them with
    a finishing bayonet charge. Their close formation gives them strength
    when attacking, but leaves them vulnerable to artillery and harassing
    skirmishers. If under threat from cavalry they can form a defensive
    square. Historically, the Royal Deux-Ponts take their name from the
    Duke of Deux-Pont who raised the regiment on his German estates. The
    regiment served throughout the Seven Years War and remained active
    after the war, while many long-established French units were disbanded.
    It went on to serve as part of the French expeditionary force that
    arrived in America in 1780 under Jean-Baptiste Donatien de Vimeur,
    comte de Rochambeau.

    Royal Welch Fusiliers (Britain)


    Armed
    with grenades and a powerful throwing arm, the Royal Welch Fusiliers
    are far more than your average missile troop. Their skills extend past
    the throwing of highly explosive projectiles, also encompassing the
    fine art of marksmanship, muskets being the weapon of choice. Although
    primarily expected to fight at range, fusiliers are also more than
    capable in melee and on the charge. Their only real weakness is
    artillery and heavy cavalry who could charge them from the flank or the
    rear. The Royal Welch Fusiliers were founded in 1689. At this time they
    weren't known as the Fusiliers: this title was not bestowed upon them
    until 1702. A further addition was to follow after the War of Spanish
    Succession in 1713, when they became the Royal Welch Fusiliers. This
    was a variation of "Welsh" used at the time. Later members of the
    regiment would earn 14 Victoria Crosses (the highest British award for
    gallantry) and can count famous servicemen and poets Siegfried Sassoon
    and Robert Graves amongst their number.

    Company of Select Marksmen/Fraser's Rangers (Britain)


    Rangers
    are used for scouting and raiding missions far beyond the skills of
    ordinary men. Their ranks are mostly drawn from frontiersmen already
    hardened to living in the wilderness and capable of hiding in a variety
    of terrain types. Excellent marksmen, they excel at ranged combat but
    suffer in prolonged melee attacks. They are trained to conceal
    themselves and fight in loose formation, but if caught in the open by
    line infantry or cavalry they are likely to sustain heavy casualties.
    Historically, Fraser's Rangers was a British brigade formed in Canada
    and composed of General Fraser's 24th Regiment of Foot, with light
    infantry and grenadier units from Sir Guy Carleton's Montreal force.
    These men took part in a number of key battles during the American
    Revolution, most notably the Battle of Bennington where they sustained
    heavy losses. They also fought at Saratoga, where they came up against
    Major General Morgan and his 500 elite riflemen. Morgan's men were
    attacked by the British advanced company, but Fraser and his rangers
    drove them back, allowing the advanced company to retreat.
