Well, this is a question to my fellow hetman-comrades:
How do you use our only mounted unit?

Compared to other nations our riders are not used to mounted fight and worse than others.
But: we can use our guns while mounted.

If we let them dismount, they know not to form a line and have to rely on open order... and to dismount our only mounted unit seems a bit wrong.
For myself I either tend to hold them back in the safety of the tabor and let them charge in the best moment, or I like to build up some tension with them. (Somehow many enemies fear mounted units with spears...)

Now I'm courious how they can be used otherwise.

If you have any tactical need for let's say a forest, hill or a village, you can swifty move your molotisty and then dismount them. Infantry defend such positions better than cav.

Secondly, mounted moloitsy are handy in the patrol scenario. Thanks to the open order they can march up to 30 cm. That allows you to reach the furthest objective quickly.

You can also keep them mounted and try to flank shot your enemy.

What Daw said!

They are very flexible, I tend to use them for taking objectives and then getting out the way but can be good for holding woods and villages.
