Unit Profile: "Eisen und Flamme" Artillery Battery

"Eisen und Flamme" Artillery Battery
Inhaber: Captain Steiger
Commander: Captain Steiger
Depot: Eisenbrückenstadt
Battle honors:

Artillerist uniform

Funded by the Steiger family, famed iron merchants of the city of Eisenbrückenstadt, this battery was the first artillery unit to form in Hesse-Engelburg. Most recruits for the battery are drawn from the mining families of Eisenhügel, rather than from Eisenbrückenstadt itself. The base for the unit is, however, Eisenbrückenstadt, and when not needed for field services its cannons are often mounted in the redoubt that guards the city gates.
