French light infantry Voltigeur (skirmisher), In French, literally "gymnast, jumper, or leaper", chosen for their agility and sharpshooting ability, they deployed out in front of the line formations, to harass and delay the enemy, and to try to kill officers so as to disrupt. They often deployed in pairs, one shooting while the other loaded. They took a heavy toll on Wellington's men at Waterloo. First used in 1804.
