|“||Ships 17 Bashkirs (Hussar-like cavalry) from the motherland.||”|
Bashkir Ponies is a technology in Age of Empires III that is unique to the Russians and can be researched at the Church once the Industrial Age is reached and the "Reformist Tsar" Home City Card has been sent. Once researched, 17 Guard Hussars named Bashkir will appear in the Home City shipment point.
Bashkir Ponies is the only way for the Russians to acquire Hussars.
- This technology may be a reference to both the Bashkir horses which have a relatively small size but are known for their endurance and the Bashkir people's horsemanship.
- The Russian Brigade, available for the Chinese in The Asian Dynasties through the Consulate by allying with the Russians, includes 15 Bashkirs. Unlike the Russian version however, the Consulate version is automatically upgraded in every Age.
