1) Ive noticed that the skirmisher bonus only applies to heavy infantry, what about cavalry or artillery bonuses, do they only affect heavu infantry? also dragoons, thaty have the 3 x bonus vs cav, does this only affect heavy cav?

2) Can units miss. The jaeger says it sacrifices damage for accuracy, can they miss?

3) I keep reading that abus guns and grenadiers are not aritllery, does this mean that light infantry bonuses work against them?

1) Skirmishers and Archer like units bonuses apply only to Heavy Infantry. Artillery and Cavalry bonuses apply to all kinds of Infantry, while Ranged Cavalry bonuses apply only to Heavy Cavalry. Infantry anti cavalry bonuses (such as pike units) apply to all Cavalry though.

If you have TWC, Jaguar Knights bonuses apply only to Heavy Infantry.

2) Yes, units can miss, but as far as I know, just arches can. With that I say they miss an average of 1 of each 10 shots, so its nothing to care about. I have seem Artillery units miss their target a few times too...

I've never seem a skirmisher unit miss though. I can pretty much say Skirmishers and Musketeer like units always hit their target. Thus, the Jaeger's description is "wrong" - but don't care about it. Most descriptions made by ES are from older versions than the game one when it was released, so some have absurd mistakes.

3) Vs Grenadiers yes, vs Abus, no.

Grenadiers are Heavy Infantry. Abus not, but still Infantry. Grenadiers (and Abus, if you don't have TWC) are also classified as Siege Troops, so a few other units (such as defensive buildings, Oprichiniks and Minutemen) do have multipliers against them.

A bit complicated, I know.

1) clicky That's bobs guide, it will tell you what gets bonuses when attacking what.

2) no (all but cannon fire, when in melee cannons will missfire so its a good idea to keep them safe)

3) look at MNbobs guide up there, find abus gun and grenadiers, and look at what unit types they are.

EDIT: you beat me walker
