Dragoons are made whenever you move a colonist out of the colony and choose the option to make a Dragoon. It requires 50 Guns and 50 Horses to do this.

Any colonist except a Converted Native can be made into a Dragoon, and he retains any specialization he had, such as Master Distiller, for example.


Dragoons are soldiers trained in the use of firearms from horseback. The ability to fire a musket with any semblance of accuracy while galloping across a battlefield was one that required intense training and the dragoons were rightly respected for their mastery of this skill. Nearly every power in Europe fielded Dragoons - Napoleon Bonaparte was especially fond of their combination of force and maneuverability.
