The Jaeger Infantry is the light unit of the Industrial Age. It has moderate damage and high defense. It is worth nothing that it actually loses -7 attack from the light unit of the previous era, the Ranger. This is compensated by the ability to attack from range. The Jaeger Infantry is able to hide in forests, which makes it immune to ranged attacks. It receives additional defense in bushes and forests. However, it cannot hide against the blast skill of the howitzer, the heavy unit of the age.

This unit is effective against almost everything in wooded terrains. It can attack at distance without being retaliated against. If the player uses 8 Jaeger Infantry and hides all of them in forests, riflemen, musketeers, cannons and all ranged and artillery units with the exception of howitzers will attempt to attack at close quarters and they will fall easily.

This is the last light unit to continue the "classic" bonuses against fast units and weaknesses against heavy units. The next age, the Progressive Era, changes combat roles significantly.
