Problematic Russian Changes

I think I found what they were trying to go for with the Landed Gentry card. It appears like they were making a reference to the landed armies who apparently fought primarily as mounted archers. It fits with the European look of their units.


Even so, I’d say this is somewhat obscure especially when they call it Landed Gentry instead of Landed Army. Even the depiction is of the nobles’ combat slaves and not the actual gentry. Tatar Yoke also just sounds way cooler so I’d still be in favour of renaming them.

The name of the Halberdier replacement is also a bit iffy to me. Poruchik just means lieutenant, so it is an odd choice for a Halberdier equivalent. Kholop (combat slaves) or Pernach Macemen could be other options for the unit.
