Description Edit

"A Tercio was a Spanish military unit first appearing in the 16th century. Consisting of arquebusiers (later musketeers) supported by lancers and swordsmen, this combined-arms unit had ranged as well as anti-cavalry and anti-personnel capabilities. In order to work together effectively and to carry out all of the intricate maneuvres required to coordinate the different weapons-types, the soldiers in the tercio had to be very highly-trained indeed. By the 17th century, the entire Spanish army (at least the infantry portion) was organized into tercio units."
