Oh My!

Assuming you game SYW giving an advantage to the Prussians or British over other nations' troops in terms of movement and/or fire, how do you treat the troops of these nations? More Prussian, more British, neither?

These three armed forces were professional in nature from three of the better "minor" Germanic countries. In my opinion I would rate the Hanoverians and Hessians as equal to the British and Prussian and the Brunswickers not far behind.

After all, there were two battalions of Hanoverian infantry with the British battalions that defeated the French cavalry at Minden.
