Overall strategyEdit

No true Manchu of worth would deign to slog on foot, so for this reason the cannon fodder role in the Qing armies must be assumed by Han Chinese conscripts, who are recruited as conscripts under the Green Banner in the Qing military hierarchy. As such, Lüying or “Green Banner”  Musketeers form the actual backbone of the Chinese war machine, not the knightly castes of Banner cavalrymen raised from Mancu families.

Because they are conscripts, these units are underrstandably slower and weaker and have inferior range compared to the more powerful European units, but are substantially cheaper  than normal Musketeers, making them ideal as throwaway units. The main draw to raising the Lüying regiments is to function as a fast-building speed bump to distract the enemy, until you can bring your cavalry forces to bear upon the foe.
