Dragoons, like all Ranged Cavalry, are fast raiders able to fire even while moving. They are effective when fighting Heavy Infantry, Artillery Weapons, Civilians and Support Units. They can be countered with Light Cavalry and Foot Archers. Dragoons also have a small chance to counterattack aircraft.
The Dragoon is trained and upgraded at the Stable.
Production cost for this unit increases progressively with every Stable unit on the field or currently in production. However, the maximum cost for Dragoon is capped at 135 Timber / 90 Wealth. Actual production and upgrading costs may differ, depending on researched technologies, connected rare resources, or adopted governments.
