Report article RSS Feed Heavy Cavalry of Prussia

In which we shall examine three types of Prussian cavalry: Dragoons, Cuirassiers and Gardes du Corps.

Posted by Docm30 on Jul 19th, 2012

'Lo,

As promised previously, here is a preview of the cavalry Prussian players will have access to.

In the last update I explained a little about how the Prussian army was undergoing a major reformation. Nowhere is this more true than in the cavalry --- the Brandenburg Cuirassiers shown here, for example, are still wearing their old 1806 pattern coats (albeit, slighty modified) and the old style bicorne. The Gardes du Corps have received their new coats but, like the Cuirassiers, won't be issued their Russian-style helmets until shortly after the period this mod covers. The Brandenburg Dragoons are unique amongst the three for having received all of the 1808-09 uniform.

As always, the history lesson is over and 'tis time for the screenshots. For the record, Gardes are in white, Cuirassiers in buff and Dragoons in blue.

Keep in mind that all the firearms seen in those screens have since been replaced with newer, better versions, which you will see in a future article on the numerous weapons you'll have access to in the mod.

Thanks for reading.

Just a quick question, Docm30. Are you planning on making the battlefields larger from the vanilla version? I think they might be too small for large linebattles and cavalry charges.
Really looking forward for this mod. Excellent work so far!

Les unités sont manifiques L'Aigle! Dommage que le rendu ingame le soit bien moins, je suis curieux de savoir ce que cela peut donner dans NTW. ^^
