Description

Mercenary infantry were recruited mainly from Germans, however, there were also some volunteer Scottish regiments and of other nationalities. The owner of the unit received a contract according to which he recruited a unit for the Swedish Crown. The contract included financial terms, size and equipment of the unit. A typical mercenary infantry company consisted of 18 officers and 80-100 privates. Mercenary regiments usually consisted of 8 companies, although there were also some 2-4 company squadrons. Usually musketeers made up about two thirds of a unit. Some mercenary regiments still used old type of equipment popular during TYW: helmets and armor for pikemen and heavy muskets with forks for shot.
