ES_SandyMan has given a detailed explanation of the Mantlets new use as on the pre-expansion Age of Empires III Mantlets are handy siege units only acquired by allying with native Iroquois. However on the expansion, the Mantlets are very very different.
they're not bad at siege but their main purpose is to soak up damage. Enemy ranged units take forever to kill mantlets and while they're trying the rest of your army can go nuts. Of course if they ignore the mantlets to fight your army, you can take down his buildings with them. You would never want a whole army of just mantlets, but sprinkling a half-dozen or so in the crowd is nice.
