Ranged cavalry with a powerful grenade attack. Very effective against buildings
—In-game description

The Mounted Granadero is an revolutionary unit in Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition that is available to Argentina. Mounted Granaderos can be trained once the card Granaderos has been sent.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Mounted Granadero is a combination of the mobility of a cavalry unit and the splash attack of the Grenadier. In comparison with foot Grenadiers:

  • Mounted Granaderos are cheaper
  • Have worse siege attack
  • Have less resistance against ranged attacks
  • Have more hitpoints
  • Have more speed and mobility
  • The Grenade Launchers card don't benefit them

They benefit from the Wild West technology.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Mounted Granaderos are based on Argentinian Regimiento de Granaderos a Caballo. They used sabres and lances, not grenades. As most grenadier units, their name referred to a elite corps rather than the weapon, which was phased out in grenadier units.
