    What does it do? Skirmishers only have an attack range of 1...

    The mounted archers use the same promotions as the regular archers, because there's no official unit group for them, remember that in vanilla, they disappear after chariots (besides uniques). Also, you can give range, so its not completely useless.

    It's sorta-kinda useful if you get range on them, although usually one wants to go the other branch for Logistics (since that essentially doubles exp gain). Though it's nice to have to option to go Range + Indirect Fire if playing on a forest/hill heavy map I guess.

    Because archers can take it right away due to having 2 tiles range.

    Would it be so bad to reverse the order? Field gun siege unit has extra range before indirect fire.

    Do skirmishers have the same promotion line as archers?
