Fast and dependable, an Outrider can be in one place to fire, then be in another to fire again moments later.
Outriders are both the commanders and drill instructors of the Pistolkorps. They are rarely noblemen, but usually veterans elevated from the ranks of state regiments who have shown an affinity for horsemanship and a talent for training new recruits. Outriders typically wear ornate armour, for nobles pay well for their sons to learn the art of war. They tend to form separate regiments to show their charges exactly how it's done, but also to display their martial skills to any noble looking for an experienced instructor to tutor their sons. As the Pistolkorps is funded in part by the Imperial Engineers School, Outriders are equipped with deadly repeater handguns, capable of unleashing devastating storms of lead at range. The Outriders' leader, inevitably the keenest among them, will often be armed with an even more outlandish weapon befitting his status.
This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.
This unit can fire while on the move.
The damage of armour-piercing weapons mostly ignores the armour of the target, making them the ideal choice against heavily-armoured enemies. They are often heavier and attack at a slower rate though, making them less efficient against poorly-armoured targets.
This unit can deploy in an expanded deployment area, allowing it to start the battle within striking distance of the enemy - or somewhere unexpected.
