Because of their mode of operation the Frundsberg Aufklarungskorps is rarely spotted. But a member was recently observed following a unit of Swedish dragoons
The role of this small but effective formation is to discover information on actual and potential enemy movements. To this end they wear a green uniform to aid concealment and are mounted on fast horses to ensure a fast get-away if needed.

Special forces of the 'Recce' type!
They could be officially the 13th Dragoons...

Ah, my kind of troops. One unit in which I served in the Army was a divisional armored cavalry squadron. We called ourselves the "eyes of the division commander."

This may be just the way to use the three extra dragoons I have. Thanks for the grand idea!
