General InformationEdit

  • Like all heavy cavalry, the hussars are front runners among all troops, with a great deal of hitpoints, they can endure more than any other troop. For their strength in taking damage, they do sheer damage themselves and cannot win battles unless they are supported by stronger troops.
  • Due to the French's nation power of troops trained quicker; the hussar can be trained in 2 minutes and 48 seconds which is 42 seconds earlier than standard heavy cavalry (3 minutes and 30 seconds).
  • The hussar is one of the strongest units in the game; as well as the strongest heavy cavalry.
  • The hussar has more damage than standard heavy cavalry and can minimize casualties.
  • If you build the Notre Dame wonder, you can upgrade to hussars for 5,220,000 food, which is 580,000 less than the original price (5,800,000 food).
  • As a French unique unit, hussars can inflict more damage and has more health than standard cuirassiers.

Historical Description Edit

"By the 18th century muskets were rendering heavy armor all but useless, and 'Hussar' came to be applied to cavalry armed with sword and lance. Hussars were known to be gallant and impetuous. Napoleon said that he'd be surprised to see a Hussar to live beyond the age of thirty because of their recklessness in battle. They are also credited with the invention of 'sabrage' - the art of opening a champagne bottle with a saber."

Attacking Strategies Edit

  • Hussars have a lot of health but are slow and have low attack power, so use them in groups.
  • Hussars are weak against many defenses grouped together.
  • Due to their high health, hussars can be use as meat shields to protect infantry from the defenses.
  • Cannon Towers can destroy hussars easily like all heavy cavalry. If you can, try swarming it with heavy infantry or ranged infantry to destroy it quick enough since the cannon tower is slow.
  • When pushing for trophies, you would need to destroy the Town Center. In many bases, the town center would be in the center of the base. First, train up an army of hussars and a veteran wall sapper. When attacking, deploy a veteran wall sapper and wait until it destroys the necessary walls, then deploy all your hussars in the areas which the Town Center is more close to. If there are a few defenses blocking the way, destroy them. Then rally your hussars to destroy the Town Center.
  • Hussars would ignore defensive troops and would pursue their targets which are defensive buildings. However, if a defensive troop attacks the hussar, the hussar will attack back until the defensive troop is killed; thus making the hussar distracted. Try to use and deploy ranged infantry such as musketeers or heavy infantry such as fusiliers after deploying the hussars to eliminate the defensive troops.

Defensive Strategies Edit

  • Hussars are a good alliance troop due to its high health; making it longer to kill them.


  • Hussars were created in the 15th century.
  • In DomiNations, hussars are French heavy cavalry. If applied to real-life history however, hussars are actually meant to be light cavalry instead. Hussars are not only used by the French but mainly with other European kingdoms, such as the United Kingdom, Prussia, German states, Russia, Sweden, etc. in the early 19th century. One of the most famous typed of hussars is the winged hussar; which is Polish.
  • Hussars hold a variety of weapons and not just a sabre and a lance; such as rifles and pistols.
  • Although these units are called "Hussars", they resemble cuirassiers rather than hussars.
