Bohemians are busy with gunpowder on the one hand and trying to be influential with their monks on the other. With their technological advances called the ‘Wagenburg Tactic’ and the ‘Hussite Reforms’, the Bohemians are able to develop their firepower and monks. The siege weapons named ‘Hussite Cart’ (Hussite Wagon), which is defined as the ancestor of the modern tank, is like a portable fortress equipped with rifled troops. We should not forget the howitzers of the Bohemians, the ‘Bomber Cannon’. As you can see, they are very neat about war technologies.
The Poles promise a game based more on cavalry. Alongside their technologies such as Szlachta Privileges (Szlachta Privileges) and Lekit Legacy are Winged Hussar units that they share with Lithuanians. They also have a unit called Obuch, this infantry unit is an effective unit that shatters armor with battle hammers.
Bohemians and Poles are included in the scenarios of Barbaros, Genghis Khan and Ivaylo, which were previously included in the game, as well as new scenarios related to them.
