    Nice video. The troops seem to move alot faster than mine in reacting to being shot. I saw some animations (being blown to th side from an artillery impact) that I dont think I've seen before either. Man, I am missing alot of eyecandy playing on all medium settings.

    Also, that heat distortion effect looks pretty cartooney on the puckle guns.

    It should've shown more rocket carnage (it only showed the firing, not the business end) but other than that it was awesome!

    They are one of those prepared defenses you can put up when your campaign stack has the stakes around it. I forget which units place them... Light Infantry?

    When you're defending (in a prepared position) your light infantry, or riflemen will have the option to place Fougasses.

    "We shall defend our island whatever the cost may be; we shall fight on beaches, landing grounds, in fields, in streets and on the hills. We shall never surrender and even if, which I do not for the moment believe, this island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, will carry on the struggle until in God's good time the New World with all its power and might, sets forth to the liberation and rescue of the Old."

    Although I played ETW a lot this is the first time I see fougasse in action and it looks awesome. It seems that I have never kept an army in one place for two turns (and then defended that location)!?

    Only light infantry and riflemen can place them.

    You never used fougasses? A prepared fougasse-and-canister-shot defense was the main reason I started to siege cities until the defender came out (if you siege for two turns, defenses are on your side).
    The "mines" shown in the video were improved fougasses, by the way. Improved fougasses can only be deployed by advanced light infantry, for example Jäger. Standard light infantry only gets a weaker version of those.

    Also, fougasses explode very loud. Like, real loud. For some reason, my sound vanishes for some time after they detonate, like the explosion made me temporary deaf.


    @ Video: Whoever made this clearly did not have the patience to wait for his battery of rockets to hit something.
    Rockets (in land battles) are about as deadly as a shotgun with the barrel pointing downwards. The projectile may have the power to tear through a body, but you'll have to wait until somebody trips and falls underneath the muzzle.
