The Uhlan functions as the German version of the Hussar. Whereas the Hussar has hitpoints and the Cossack (a unique Russian unit) has cost-effectiveness on their side, the Uhlan fits in by being similar in cost to the Cossack, whilst having a much higher attack. The Germans can build them at the Stable, or can receive them from most (non-Uhlan) Home City shipment cards according to the formula:
- Uhlans = a
- where a = the Age the card is from.
From Colonial Age Uhlans are received from the Home City with every shipment. Colonial Age cards will provide two Uhlans, with an additional Uhlan being added every age. Uhlans are not received with Discovery Age shipments, TEAM shipments or Mercenary shipments.
The Uhlan is effective, especially in the Colonial Age when people usually do not have the money to field a capable Cavalry force. Pikemen are the most effective counter against an Uhlan rush. Uhlans are effective when used to raid enemy villagers as the Uhlans’ great attack bonus will probably kill one in a few sweeps of the sword. By the late-game players should have the economy to send dozens of them into battle. Upgrading them is very important, as Uhlans are sent over with every shipment, allowing players to mass a large and hard-hitting cavalry force.
Veteran Uhlan is the first upgrade of the Uhlan found at the Stable available for 200 Wood and 200 Coin once Fortress Age is reached. Although attack and the hit points increases, the overall function and multipliers as well as the resists remain the same.
- Hit Points: 228
- Hand Attack: 44
- Guardian Attack: 44
- Siege Attack: 24
The Czapka Uhlan is the second upgrade for the Uhlan found at the Stable that is available for 1,000 Wood and 1,000 Coin once Industrial Age is reached. The rank of Czapka is equal to the Guard level of ordinary units. Although the attack and hit points are improved, the overall function and the multipliers as well as the resists remain the same.
- Hit Points: 304
- Hand Attack: 59
- Guardian Attack: 59
- Siege Attack: 32
The Imperial Czapka is the final and most powerful upgrade for the Uhlan found at the Stable that is available for 1,500 Wood and 1,500 Coin once Imperial Age is reached. Although the attack and hit points are improved, the overall function and the multipliers as well as the resists remain the same. Notice that the hit points and the attack doubles compared to the original Uhlan.
- Hit Points: 399
- Hand Attack: 77
- Guardian Attack: 77
- Siege Attack: 42
