Re: Saxon Rifled Muskets

I believe that this might be difficult. Even as Saxony boast one of the most complete Military Archive in Germany, dating back to the end of the TYW, Saxony was twice occupied by Prussia, stripped of all Battle Honors by Frederick, and ravaged several times by Wars, i.e., TYW, GNW, 7YW, NAPWA. Each ...

Re: Saxon Rifled Muskets

The Time of the 7YW saw Saxon Troops split up into to different Groups, payed and Equipped by their "Hosts". One Part served in the Army of Austria while the other Part was with the French. This said, the Saxons have been equipped in France so the "Rifled Muskets" may have been of French Origin. It ...

Re: Saxon uniforms in NYW?

Small addition to Dan's information's - The Boarspear was not only used by the Saxons but also by the Electorate of Brandenburg (Prussia) for the same reasons - give the Foot Soldiers some protection against Cavalry by building Chevaux de Fris after removing the Pikes.

Re: Bavarian infantry War of Spanish Succession

Not sure if that helps...
But Re-Enactors of Bavarians at Hoechstaedt(Blenheim) are most likely the best source :wink:

Re: Early Petrine Army

Thanks for sources. It does seem very difficult to get concrete information on this shadowy period in Russian military history. Regarding the "reiters". I know that they were probably introduced as cuirassiers (ECW style) during the reign of Mikhail or Alexei. What isnt clear is whether this was st...
