Austerlitz Military Mods: Army of the Austrian Empire
Victory of the Austrian army at Neerwinden in 1793. Painting by Johann Nepomuk Geiger (1805-1880)


The uniform! one uniform! he is in their old way of life
Once he sheltered, embroidered and beautiful,
Their indolence, the understanding of poverty;
And we are happy for them!
And in wives, daughters - the same passion for uniforms!

("Woe from Wit" A.S. Griboyedov)

Greatest battles in stories. Let us recall the Hungarian series "Captain Tenkesh", which was popular in the USSR in the 60s of the last century. All Austrian soldiers there are dressed in white cloth caftans and black cocked hats. That is, in the era of Peter the Great (and the action of the series refers precisely to this time), the Austrian army already wore white uniforms, which did not differ in any way from the uniforms of England, France and Russia.

Well, since 1718, the white color of the uniform has finally become the hallmark of the Austrian army, like red - for the British, blue - in France, and green - in Russia.

Its recognized multi-ethnic character was also an important feature. Therefore, the regiments of the Austrian army were divided into German (recruited in German-speaking lands) and Hungarian - eastern (including the troops of Croatia and Transylvania), which was also reflected in the uniform.


General of the Austrian army

Reforms associated with the wars of the era of the Napoleonic wars in Austria were started as early as 1798.

And since 1801, they were actively implemented by the Austrian Archduke Karl, who became president of the Hofkriegsrat and field marshal. They ended by the spring of 1804, that is, just before the very beginning of the war with Napoleon. But even in this case, it matters to us how much they transformed the Austrian army.

And here it should be noted that it all started just with the changes in the uniform.


Officers of the German Infantry Regiments: 16th Baron Terzi and 28th von Fröhlich

And already in 1799, the Austrian regiments, dressed in new uniforms, together with the Suvorov troops fought in Italy and Switzerland, fought with Napoleon at Marengo and against Moreau at Hohenlinden in 1800.

Even A.V. Suvorov, appointed commander of the united Russian-Austrian army in 1799, did not at all disdain to wear the uniform of the Austrian field marshal general.

And yes. They really transformed her.

For most ranks of the infantry, cavalry and artillery, helmets and single-breasted short-cut uniforms became the main headgear.

Their color determined their belonging to the branch of the army: the white color, traditional for the Austrian army, was adopted in the infantry and for cuirassiers. The uniforms of gray color were received by foot and horse rangers. Dragoons are green. Brown was given to the gunners. And gray-blue - assigned to the Corps of Engineers.

Among themselves, the shelves were distinguished by colored collars, cuffs on the sleeves, cuffs on the folds of uniforms and the color of the metal buttons.


Fusiliers of the 38th Regiment of the Duke of Württemberg and the 4th Regiment "Deutschmester"

The wide-brimmed caftans of previous years in the army were replaced by economical tailcoat-cut jackets, which had short coattails and lapels only in the front in the form of triangles in the color of instrument cloth, which gave the Austrian infantry uniform a very characteristic appearance.

Buttons - both "white" and "yellow" metal. The shoulder straps for holding the harness belts were also instrumental in color, and the belts themselves were white. Backpacks - made of cowhide with fur outside, fastened with three white belts. An overcoat of gray cloth was also worn by a soldier in a roll. But not over the shoulder (as in the Russian army), but over the knapsack over the shoulders.

In addition, the soldier carried a water bottle and a cartridge bag in a sling.


Grenadiers of the infantry regiments of the 1st German regiment of Emperor Franz II and the 2nd Hungarian regiment of Archduke Ferdinand

Culottes and fusiliers and grenadiers were worn rather narrow, white. And below the knees - black leggings and shoes.

The leather helmet, which has become the main headdress of Austrian fusiliers and dragoons, was developed on the basis of antique designs. And it was a leather hemisphere with a crest also made of leather 4 cm high with a woolen yellow-black narrow plume. She had a long visor in front and a short one in the back. It was also reinforced in front with a brass strip with the monogram "FII", and on the head it was fastened with a leather chin strap. Officer's helmets were adorned with gilded metal trim and a beaver plume.


Privates of the light infantry. They wore a jaeger uniform, but armed with smooth-bore guns and were listed in the jaeger regiments

The grenadiers (both privates and officers) had uniforms in cut and color that were the same as the fusiliers. But they differed in a headdress: a fur hat and front and back visors, and a forehead plaque with an imperial monogram. Interestingly, the "grenadier" could also be covered with a special cover, on which an image of a burning grenade was placed in front between the letter "F" and the number "II".

Jaegers received a gray uniform of the so-called "pike" color with black belts, "yellow" buttons and a helmet with the monogram "FII", otherwise identical to the form of fusiliers. Since the rangers' guns were short, they were supposed to have bayonets-daggers.


Officers of the Hungarian Infantry Regiments of the 52nd Regiment of Archduke Karl and the 34th Regiment of Prince Anton Eszterhazy

The "Hungarian" infantry, which outwardly differed greatly from the "German", had characteristic national differences.

First of all, instead of white culottes with black leggings, the "Hungarian" infantry had light blue tight leggings with yellow-black piping on the outer side seams and paired "Hungarian knots" on the front of the leggings.

Pointed cuffs of “Hungarian” uniforms (as opposed to straight “German” ones) decorated the “bear's paw” buttonholes. The shoes of the "Hungarian" infantry were practical ankle-length boots tied with laces.

In some shelves, the uniforms were not white, but brown. And instead of helmets, they wore shako, very similar to the shako of the Russian infantry with the same black and yellow cockade, but only without a brush.

The uniforms of the officers were similar to those of the soldiers. But they were distinguished by magnificent belt scarves of black and yellow silk, ending in tassels.


Officer of the 1st Cuirassier Regiment of Emperor Franz II

In order to preserve their expensive and easily soiled white uniforms, the Austrian infantry officers made it a fashion to wear gray frock coats.

According to the charter, they could be put on under an overcoat, that is, in bad weather and cold weather or during a campaign. But the officers turned these coats into their everyday clothes both in the ranks and outside the ranks. And they kept their snow-white uniforms for parades.

In addition, the officers of the "Hungarian" regiments could be easily recognized by their sabers.


Private 1st cuirassier regiment of Emperor Franz II

The gunners had infantry uniforms, but brown. And a two-cornered hat as a headdress, which for some reason was worn obliquely - one of the corners forward, but shifting it about 30 degrees to the left.


Dismounted privates of cuirassier regiments

The cavalry uniform was white - uniforms. And gray trousers with buttons at the seams. Helmets - infantry model. With a very moderate "caterpillar", in contrast to the similar "decoration" on the helmets of our cavalry guards, dragoons and cuirassiers.

The Austrian cuirassiers wore black (painted with paint) cuirassiers, which favorably differed from the Russian "disarmed" cuirassiers. Although they did not have the back parts of the cuirass either. Only bibs. The comb on the trumpeter's helmet was red.


Private of the 1st Light Dragoon Regiment of Emperor Franz II

But if someone in the Austrian army (in terms of the colorfulness of uniforms) was lucky, it was the hussars and lancers. Red, blue, black chikchirs (although they also wore gray trousers on the hike). And the same dolomans and mentics, richly embroidered with "Hungarian cords". Red tashki and saddlecloths with the monogram "FII". Two-tone black and yellow sultans on shako.


Officer of the 3rd Hussar Regiment of Archduke Ferdinand

Lancers - in the traditional Polish-style Uhlan uniform: in green and red uniforms. Moreover, the regiments differed only in the color of the confederate lancers. One regiment had a yellow top, the other green. The weather vane on the peaks of the two "imperial" - black and yellow - were the same in all regiments. Paddles - as in the hussar regiments, but with rounded corners.


Private of the 2nd lancer regiment "Schwarzenberg"

As for the hairstyles, the famous 5th century braids were first shortened to 12,5 inches (XNUMX cm). And the bouclie was completely canceled.

The hair at the temples was now combed back to the back of the head. And that was where it all ended.

Although the powder was still left as an element of the ceremonial uniform.

And in 1805, the braids were also abolished.

In conclusion, we note that in the uniform of the 1798 model, the Austrian army fought not only at Austerlitz in 1805, but also at Wagram in 1809.

          Most likely in those days people first of all thought about the aesthetic component of the military uniform. The main thing is to be beautiful! And, you must admit, they did it perfectly. And then the XNUMXth century came with its machine guns and other weapons of destruction. And that's it! The beauty of the military is over! Ball began to reign practicality and stealth on the battlefield. hi

          Well, now imagine this situation. The fight is tomorrow. The army of Emperor A against the army of Emperor B.
          Message from Emperor A to Emperor B:
          "What will your tomorrow be?"
          Reply dispatch from Emperor B to Emperor A:
          "Mine will be in white. And yours?"
          "Here, damn it! - thinks Emperor A. - Chased after fashion! Or did I save money? How will I distinguish them? Is that in a pipe? Adjutant!"
          - Yes, Your Imperial Majesty!
          - Change the ambush regiment in green!
          - Duc, where can I get something green?
          -- I said!
          The next day, during the battle, an ambush regiment, painted with watercolors and oils in green, jumps out from the flank - the artists did not sleep at night!
          "What are these peppers? - thinks the soldier of Emperor A, all in white. - Alien? Decide just in case?"
          - Parlais wu france? - the fighters of Emperor B shouted in confusion, addressing the Greens.
          - Ui, ui, - answer the soldiers of the ambush regiment, entirely nobles. And some of them even say: "Yes!"
          Interestingly, there were mistaken murders of their own in connection with the same form?

          Of course there were. But they were rather random.
          Firearms of that time did not allow you to confidently hit the target at a great distance, and from the distance when it made sense to start shooting, the details of the uniform could already be seen and orientated.
          That's when the weapon was improved and the battle distance increased, as a result of which the armies changed into something uniform and discreet, it became more difficult. But even then they coped.

        The battle of Marengo already changed little in this campaign - the Austrians were in a sack and the French retreat of 800 meters did not fundamentally change. And it was not the first lost battle. A similar case took place in 1797 at Arcola.

    Good evening. Vyacheslav Olegovich, thank you for your story
    As usual it is interesting, but you have a small mistake: "jaeger uniform of 1895", and the battle of Austerlitz took place in 1805. Perhaps you should write: 1795. ...

        Good evening.
        The material needs to be worked out more thoroughly.
        There were actually ten dead. All Estonian sources have written about this.
        Selles kokkupõrkes said otsa järgmised Mustpeade vendade sellidest, kes rüütellikult vaenlase vastu [võideldes - JK] surid - Jumal olgu neile armulik -: oldermann Tartust Hermen Bartelsen, Joachim Schrofe, silmaarst Meister hans, Simon Koningk, Gert Witte sell Hans Solden, Baltzar Kröger, Hinrich Boldewin, Bartelt Haverlant, Asmus Russow, Hans Schefinghusen. Kodanikest: härra Lütke von Oytenn, Tallinna raehärra, Martin Kleinschmidt, Blasius Hogrewe, Hans Kalitz
        Surnames are listed eleven, but - Gert Witte sell Hans Solde - translated Hans Solde - the clerk or assistant Gert Witte. That is, Gert Witte did not participate in the battle and does not belong to the killed.

          There is absolutely no need to say that. In principle, we could both see and hear, it was played until the mid-70s. A good adventure film for children. And now it's not too late to see. Although I recently re-read "Ivanhoe" - it would be better if I did not.

                  In Krasnodar I loved "Severny", a natural barn, already then it needed a major overhaul, but for some reason I liked it.
                  They survived: "Aurora", "Bulgaria", but films are shown a little. Mostly concerts or various seminars

    I remember something, I watched as a child, in 1974-75. Something like "4 tankers and a dog". Of course, I remember that the battle scenes were reminiscent of those from Fanfan Tulip. However - I think: even today it would be no worse than stupid fairy tales: like "Dog" or "Sea Devils". Not to mention the beach police or the hilarious police.

        "Titanic"? Why is there so interesting?
        Better then to the Borodino field, near Leipzig or Waterloo. The spectacle is much more dynamic and ambitious.
        As for the naval theme, I would prefer to look at the Battle of Jutland, I think this is a sight, if you move and find yourself at the right time in the right place would be simply enchanting and completely exclusive.
        It would be interesting, in the light of Oleg Dvurechensky's research, to look at the Battle of Kulikovo, but here the scale and brilliance will not be the same. Nothing, but the spectacle is compact, you can catch the whole picture.

            "Californian". The radio operator was asleep, and the missiles launched on the Titanic were of the wrong color ... No one understood anyone, and did not help. Shit, in short. sad

              Captain * Californian * Stanley Lord fought this statement to the last! He was at a distance of about 20 miles and was in an ice field. The radio operator of this ship turned off the radio 10 minutes before the collision / well, what do you want, he was alone on the ship, without a replacement /. The rockets were really not red, but white, this is a fact. But the irony of fate is that between these ships there was a third! And it was he who was seen from the sinking * Titanic *! We must also take into account the fact that the coordinates transmitted by the radio operator * Titanic * / and they were calculated by Boxhall / were unreliable. The error came from the assistant Smith! It became clear only after the skeleton of the liner was discovered. So, buddy. hi

                I remember Phillips was the first to use the new 1 signal - SOS. And before the disaster, he stubbornly earned money by sending paid telegrams to the mainland from the ship. He was caught from one of the boats, but he died ... sad

                  Yes, that's true. Before that, they used CQD. As for the commercial marconigrams (they were called that), you know, they were sent with the knowledge and orders of the flight manager. So what to say that Phillips made money from this? No, rather a company * White Star * and * Marconi * made money on Phillips, you know what his salary was? £ 4 a month!

                      That's purely from memory, but Smith received 1250 pounds. He had his own mansion and everything relying on status. No other captain received it.
                      4 pounds? It was probably possible to live, but ...

              At the time of the War of 1812.

              This moment needs to be clarified! drinks I thought that by 1812 everyone was already wearing shako - the grenadiers differed only in the emblem and the sultan on the shako.
              The combat headdresses of the infantrymen were shako, as well as uniforms, of two samples: 1811 and 1812. Shakos were built (manufacturing, sewing uniforms and equipment for soldiers and officers then it was customary to call the formation) of black cloth with black leather lining. In front, on the shako, copper emblems were reinforced: in the guard - the state emblem, in the infantry companies and fuseler companies - a grenada (grenade) about one fire, in the grenadier's - a grenade of three lights. In addition, the shako was decorated with white etiquette, colored burrs, copper scales on the chin straps. The shako of the lower ranks of the grenadier regiments and the grenadier companies of the infantry regiments had black sultans.
              Preobrazhensky grenadier - figure 5.

              1. Ober - officer of the grenadier company of the Life Guards of the Izmailovsky regiment; 2. Chief Officer of the Grenadier Company of the Life Guards of the Lithuanian Regiment; 3. Non-commissioned officer of the grenadier company of the Life Guard of the Lithuanian regiment; 4. Headquarters officer of the Semyonovsky Life Guards Regiment in a cap; 5. Private of the grenadier company of the Life Guard of the Preobrazhensky Regiment; 6. Headquarters officer of the Preobrazhensky Life Guards Regiment.
              The only exception in terms of caps was the Pavlovsk regiment - they were assigned to him for Friedland.
              The exception was the Pavlovsk Grenadier Regiment. The lower ranks of the grenadier companies of this regiment wore high grenadier hats with copper foreheads, a red top and a white band. The okolysh was decorated with small copper grenades. Fusiliers relied on fusiliers similar to grenadier hats.

              The commander of the Life Guards Jaeger Regiment at the beginning of the War of 1812 was Karl Ivanovich Bistrom - the future commander of the Guards Corps, and the owner of the most unique gravestone monument in Russia (in Kingisepp).

                A bronze lion in Romanovka?
                And the monument itself is unique and its fate is unique

                Adjutant General K.I.Bistrom - a hero of the Patriotic War of 1812. Commanding a regiment, the first begins the Battle of Borodino and fights as far as Paris. In 1828 he fights near Varna. After the death of Bistrom, the corps officers erect a monument to him at their own expense. The inscription is engraved on the monument: “To Adjutant General K. I. Bistrom, the Guards Corps as a token of gratitude. Borodino, Varna, Ostrolenko. The project of the monument belongs to the famous sculptor P.K. Klodt, and was carried out by the author in 1839-1840.
                The fate of the bronze lion is quite interesting. He survived the revolution, the civil war, the 30s. He also survived the Great Patriotic War. From occupied Kingisepp, the Nazis send a bronze lion to Riga to be melted down, but the factory workers hide the valuable sculpture and keep it until the arrival of the Soviet Army.
                In 1947, the bronze lion was delivered to Leningrad, and in 1954 it was again installed on a pedestal, on which it has been standing for more than 180 years.

                  The Bolsheviks threw him off the pedestal, but did not find a truck of the required carrying capacity! This is some kind of miracle! As a result, the lion lay in a ditch for several months until he was accidentally found by another "authorized", who was clearly smarter than both his predecessor and the crowd of idiots at the rally put together. request They put the lion back. yes
                  The situation with the Germans there is unclear - they were taken out either for melting or as a cultural value. But yes, the good Latvians buried the sculpture in the ground, and gave it to our people after the liberation of Riga (it would be better if the Balts remembered such moments of history). good
                  The project of the monument belongs to the famous sculptor P.K.Klodt, and was carried out by the author in 1839-1840.

                  And in Russia such monuments have never been erected to anyone else! stop And the story there is even more beautiful (see the link to the article above). The childless general ordered to build a house for disabled soldiers in Romanovka. And, in many respects, in gratitude to this, the guards collected money for the monument by subscription ... soldier
                  The master's house has not survived. EMNIP, the foundation has been preserved. Opposite the "Grove of Memory" (there is a howitzer arr. 1910/30 on the pedestal), the exit to Romanovka, there is a cafe - a wooden blockhouse. It contains photos of pre-revolutionary Yamburg, including views of a house and a monument that has not survived. And the invalid home is worth it. Now there is a ski lodge.

                        Kingisepp, like Narva, is a fairly ancient city. Founded by the Novgorod boyar Ivan Fedorovich as a fortress Yam in 1384. So the Novgorodians, led by Prince Patrikei, fortified the borders of the Novgorod Republic from the attack of the German and Swedish invaders. The fortress of the city had a solid stone wall with towers and gates and withstood the siege of the troops of Sweden and the Livonian Confederation in 1395 and 1444-1448. From 1703 to 1922 the city was called Yamburg, then it was renamed in honor of the Estonian revolutionary Viktor Kingisepp.
