In this guide I will be telling you how to destroy Russia as Prussia very easily. This is also kinda a guide on cohesion as it is important for this.
Cohesion in represented by the blue bar
2.For me i will be doing 6 units but you can do as many as you want as long as the units are balanced in the same way.
3. The units you will need for this (using six units as an example) 1 Mortar, 2 line infantry, 2 landwehrs, and one hussar.
4. Equip the Hussar with a Dreysey carbine rifle and the others with needle guns
5.Make sure that you are going up against a Russian AI (if you wanna practice) or a Russian player and start
Image of what it should look like
example of what my setup looked like
first order phase: Move up your Landwehrs in the center just far enough so that the mortars can get in range of the enemy units while following behind.
battle phase: fire your mortars at the enemy if they are in range to immediately deal damage, lower cohesion, and if they moved up, cause them to retreat.
continue firing on the enemy whenever possible with mortars and adjust them the face large clumps of enemy units.
when enemy units with low cohesion get close, fire on them or do a cavalry charge.
play with your basic strategy and the steps I gave
repeat the last 4 steps and you should win the battle.
