New Skirmish Force: Turkish Border Garrison 1648-1676

A network of castles and fortresses manned by strong garrisons was one of the most important elements of the Turkish border defense system. They were located mostly on the Turkish-Habsburg (in today’s Slovakia and Hungary) and were able to stop the attacking enemy for a longer time as well as be a starting point for own offensive actions or force concentrations. Kamianets-Podilskyi is a classic example of such a defensive position, it was captured by the Turks in 1672 and until 1699 it was the heart of the Kamianets province. Garrisons of border castles included a mix of forces. The basic elements were usually azabs and janissaries, in some provinces the latter might have been replaced by tufekci. Also segban or martolos – light infantry
made up of Balkan Christians - served in some castles. Besli provided light cavalry support to the garrisons. Defenders were equipped with numerous artillery, although the quality of artillerymen, often recruited and trained locally, was often much below the level of the professional corps. In case of longer defensive or offensive operations the garrison could count on the cavalry levy represented by sipahi and gonullu. Sultan’s cavus were often included in the more important garrisons (especially at the Hungarian border). They advised the garrison commander and could command some infantry units.

No, you just pay 1 point and deploy 1 or 2, depends on level.
