Of course the Swedes did form firing lines, but the charge seems more emblematic of their mindset. We could consider firing Swedes, but only if there was a large demand for them. Plus there's a lot of range to get through yet.
Of course you're right and personally I'm already over the moon with what is and soon shall be available.
And BTW charging Russians would be fantastic as well
Seriously now. If I understand the Swedish tactics it was to fire a salvo at a certain distance (80 paces?) and then to close to nearly point blank range and fire another salvo, immediately followed by a charge while the enemy was still reeling from that last salvo.
I suppose even superbly drilled infantry like the Swedes probably didn't all at exactly the same instant lower their pikes and bayonets, and at least some of them would still be in a (dynamic) firing pose. Somehow that firing line would be an integral part of the attack IMHO.
But once again Clib, just keep doing what you're doing as it is indeed a most splendid job!
