Infantry strengthened hussars

74
Hussars and lancers will appear in the Lithuanian army. This is just one of the innovations that are provided for in the adopted law on the structure and size of the Lithuanian armed forces from 2014 to 2019 a year.


As a result of the ongoing structural reform in the Lithuanian army, in addition to the previously existing dragoons, hussar and uhlan units will appear. The corresponding changes were adopted by the Lithuanian Parliament when discussing the principled structure of the armed forces for the period up to 2019. The document prepared by the Ministry of Defense, in particular, provides for the renaming of a land battalion named after King Mindaugas of the land forces to a hussar battalion. According to the same scheme, the infantry battalion of the name of Grand Duchess Birute of the land forces will be named Uhlan.

Moreover, previously assigned names that are associated with the medieval history Grand Duchy of Lithuania, are preserved. But the word "motorized infantry" is removed from the names, as is the case with the name of the dragoon motorized infantry battalion named after Prince Butigheidis. However, according to the authors of the project, this does not mean that soldiers of the twenty-first century will move from armored vehicles into the saddle and arm themselves with swords and spears. According to Defense Minister Juozas Olyakas, these innovations will serve "the preservation both in the armed forces and in the society as a whole of the traditions and historical heritage of Lithuania."

As noted in the explanatory note to the adopted law, the Lithuanian hussars, as a kind of light cavalry, appeared in the first half of the 16th century as part of the troops of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Soon the hussars went over to the category of heavy cavalry, the purpose of which in battle was to ram the ranks of the enemy and, if necessary, strike from the flanks. One of the main elements of their weapons were spears. The Ulans, in turn, were formed mainly from representatives of Tatar aristocratic families, who settled on the territory of the ancient principality, and in the army of the Lithuanian light cavalry, armed with pikes and sabers.

At the same time, the modern reform will not affect the total number of subunits and military personnel of the Lithuanian army. According to the law adopted in 2014, they can be from 14.140 to 17.360 people, taking into account representatives of professional and compulsory initial service, the militia and active reserve. Along with minor changes in the total number of the army over the next six years, the law provides for a reduction in the number of senior officers. Simultaneously with the increase in the number of ordinary soldiers, the limiting number of military servicemen of a professional military service will increase from the 7.700-8.400 indicator to 9.000-9.500 by 2019.

        Just - It is planned to rename the motorized infantry battalion named after King Mindaugas of the ground forces into the hussar battalion, and the motorized infantry battalion named after Grand Duchess Biruta to Ulan.

      This maneuver was worked out by the Polish lancers back in World War II. Such an attack was during the capture of Germany by Poland. German tankers were especially frightened by sabers painted as clowns of Poles.

    "Hussars and lancers will appear in the Lithuanian army."-There was no such thing. But the story ...Hussars (Hungarian. Huszár) are lightly armed horsemen of the XNUMXth – XNUMXth centuries (along with ulans), distinguished by characteristic clothing: a shako (a high cylindrical hat with a visor), a mentic (a fur cape), a doloman (short tunic), leggings, boots. All hussars shaved their beards and wore a mustache. In the XV — XVII centuries, light armor was worn, including incomplete armor.- Well ... well .. no hi jumping ... give them roads to the geyropa and wind under the tail

            The presence of cuirasses is not yet a sign of heavy cavalry, in those days, almost everyone carried armor.

            "The" weight "of the cavalry was determined by the mass of the horse on which the rider was seated. Where the terminological division itself came from.
            light cavalry (hussars, ulans, horse rangers, etc.) were mounted on horses weighing up to 450-500 kg;
            the middle cavalry (dragoons) had horses weighing from 450-500 to 600 kg;
            heavy cavalry (cuirassiers, carabinieri, horse grenadiers, reitars, knights, etc.) sat on real monsters weighing over 600 kg (in the early period - over 800 kg);
            This is from Wiki.

                Yes, this is understandable, just if you compare the hussar in armor in your photo with the cuirassier in 1812, then, of course, they are of the same berry field, but if you compare the same hussar with other types of cavalry that were available at that time, the "severity" will not be obvious. Well, to hell with them, with the hussars.

                  Not so simple. Have you heard about the Polish "black hussars"? Named for the color of their shape. The first tank units of Poland. (by the way, many legends about "cavalry against tanks" are based precisely on what many consider Polish hussars to be cavalry. In real life, there was only one case when cavalrymen, if I am not mistaken, lancers, tried to chop down the German infantry, but ran into several armored vehicles) ...
                  They still have the emblem of tank troops - a tank with hussar wings on the background of gears.

                  It is surprising that the Lithuanians took this path.

    No matter how you call it, the essence will not change. Well, they returned beautiful, with history, names to military units. And what? You can also special forces in special bicycle companies or somehow rename it. L / s is the same, the same materiel. As they say, the same testicles, only in profile.

    Come on, make fun of toy armies. Limototrophs also played toy soldiers in childhood. And the military is always committed to traditions, regardless of the size of the army.
    And military terminology is funny, but the terms do not bother anyone:
    - armored cavalry battalion
    - Air Cavalry
    - Fusiliers (in the Wehrmacht and the Bundeswehr)
    - Marines
    - horse-mechanized group
    - submarine (nuclear such boat)

    Vashchet, initially the Lithuanian military planned to create a tank battalion. But then they thought: a tank is difficult, expensive to maintain, eats valuable imported petroleum products and poisons the virgin Baltic air. Again, the neighbors will envy, and under any pretext to beg the tank for rent - officially for training, and on the other hand - to exhaust motor resources and to screw up a thread of valuable spare parts under the guise, thereby undermining the combat readiness of the valiant Lithuanian army. Stress alone, in short, with these tankers.
    The hussars are another matter: the horse does not need a solyar, nor does it need spare parts, in the process of service it produces free fertilizers for agriculture, and most importantly, it can multiply independently (which will make it possible to increase the power of the Lithuanian army by two or even three times over time) . Another important quality is that cavalrymen are much less dependent on rear services in general and food supplies in particular (you won’t make salami from a tank). And how glamorous the hussars at the parade look, words can not convey. The ladies give birth to melt and melt, the harsh Muscovites let a stingy tear ... where there all sorts of rumbling, soft, soulless pieces of iron.

    Well, if there is a war, and the Russians go on the offensive - again the cavalry wins: you can attach a skid plow to the horse ahead of time and pretend to be a peaceful farmer.

    In general, comrades are on the right path. Consider =)))

    Soon, the hussars became heavy cavalry, whose purpose in battle was to ram the ranks of the enemy and, if necessary, strike from the flanks.

    What only former citizens of the Commonwealth will not go to become famous. Even breeding show-offs like these. I would like to see how these hussars and ulans begin to destroy the order of the armored personnel carriers attacking. No BTR 80, or 82, BTR-152 is enough. Well, or BRDM. It will be fun too.

    I noticed long ago that when they cannot do anything worthwhile, they start to scamper with names, the weirder the more fashionable. Historical heritage, connection of times - all this is good when justified. And so - a circus.

    The British Army has these units: Guards Grenadier Regiment, 2nd Fusilier Royal Regiment Battalion, His Majesty Royal Horse Artillery Detachment, Royal Territorial Cavalry, Royal Scottish Guards Dragoons, Her Majesties Royal Hussars, Her Majesties Royal Hussars, Her Majesties Royal Lancers and many others. It is clear that it is not with the Fuseys, but on horseback that they serve --- historical continuity.

      Exactly - historical continuity. These parts are already some 300 years old. And since then, the names have not changed.
      Nobody names the newly formed units in the "Royal Division of Heavy Pistols".
