The Elite Infantry is El Presidente's personal palace guard and is available since the Colonial Era. They garrison the Palace itself, but will take part in the defense of the island during an invasion, rebellion or riot. From the World Wars Era onward they can be upgraded into El Presidente's personal Death Squad: a Commando Squad.
Their effectiveness can be raised temporarily by issuing the Military Drills edict.
The Tropican Elite infantry is dressed in thick black coats with white vests under them, a three pointed black leather hat, white trousers, leather boots with white stockings, two ammunition pouches and a musket.
