The Portuguese Brigade is a Consulate shipment in Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties that can be sent by Indians and Japaneseif they choose the Portuguese as their ally once the Imperial Age is reached. It ships eleven Jinete Dragoons and four Horse Artillery.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
The combination of artillery and light cavalry makes the Portuguese Brigade an all around powerful force, as the Horse Artillery can easily wipe out infantry, and the Dragoons can protect the Horse Artillery from heavy cavalry. Portuguese Brigade is best when combined with Heavy Cavalry to protect it from a Culverin/Skirmisher combination, but is overall very effective.
