  • Junkers are weak against other infantry.

Historical Description Edit

"Junkers were the lesser sons of the Germanic nobility, who chose to go into military service mostly because they foolishly failed to be born first and therefore didn't get to inherit the lands and titles of their fathers. They sought to make their fortune the old-fashioned way: by stealing it from enemies. Because they are children of wealth, Junkers are equipped with the very best weaponry and armor available."


Attacking StrategiesEdit

  • If used in large groups; junkers can be devastating and can destroy a base easily; if not in heavy fire.
  • Mortars are devastating against junkers and can kill a group of them in a few hits if in the range of the impact. Spread your junkers around so the mortar would have to hit each junker to kill it and that its impact would not affect other Junkers as well or deploy a few heavy cavalry to destroy it.
  • Use ranged infantry such as musketeers to support junkers.
  • Junkers can be used as a distraction for many defenses and can help protect ranged infantry such as musketeers from heavy fire from defenses.

Defensive StrategiesEdit

Trivia Edit
