    The East Indiaman isn't really unique to the Dutch, I mean the British used them as well, so why use them as the dutch unique unit?

    It doesn't matter to me, there are bigger issues.

    I would have preferred a Swiss mercenary/pikeman instead. You could say the same thing though for swiss pikeman and lansknechts. They were mercenaries used all over Europe.

    True, I sort of wish England had a naval UU but i just don't want to have it replace the redcoat becuase that is so uniquely british and is a v. stong unit

    The Vulture unit is even invented, as other people said Landschnekt were used by all europe, pretorian were emperor special guard instead of roman soldiers, carracks were also used by other powers, immortals weren't mounted units......in the game there are so much things which are not historical so why care about.......at least we have a naval unit instead of another land UU.
