    I propose to create a new unit - "Engineer ". Available in 18th century, they can build Blockhouse ( very expensive). This unit will be available for all Western Countries (without Scotland) + Russia and Poland. They can build in Artillery Depot.

    ACFB, and C2 had these units, they were an important part of the game, as many buildings could only be built by them.

    They also had the ability to place powder kegs up and blow up structures.

    I believe that in the Hawks mod, they could also build bridges?

    If you look at my avatar, it is of a french Sapper. (form C2)

    Kamilow, good idea to add sapper, but the game also needs more specific units like pontonnier(they built the bridge),pionner or other technical troopers. We can't built bridges in the Cossacks game series, but If we had a chance to do that the game and players had gained tactical versatility and we could use the bridge and attacked the enemy different sides of the map. I think during this period, many battlefields didn't allow to use the roads or plains. Armies have to find different ways to solve this problem and this question's answer technical troop. Building the bridges, making block house, fort,earthwork needs special troops. If they decide to cross the river, they used pontonniers. Building earthwork or siege work needs pioneers or military engineer.That's my opinion. Developers, maybe will be added these units in the future. Some useful links for building bridge:
    for Napoleonic period: I know the game don't contain Napoleonic period, but it shows you how to build the bridges.

    I think that Engineer / Sapper should have the ability to blow up buildings using a barrel of gunpowder. Also he can build Blockhouse.
