Formations & Tactics
Formations

Infantry

Line – The standard firing or assault formation used by all Infantry formations is the Line. It is a linear formation that faces the enemy in order to maximize firepower effects through volley fire. Generally, the Infantry Regiment or Battalion will stand in a file two deep and march to within 100 - 200 meters of the enemy and fire two volleys at the enemy. At the conclusion of the two volleys the attacking Infantry formation in line assaults into the enemy at the point of the bayonet. The line formation is the least favorable formation for moving from one location to the next as it is difficult to control. Movement along the battlefield is expected. The Line Infantry Regiment will place six companies abreast in the leading two ranks and 50 meters to the rear are the remaining six line companies of the regiment. One company from the regiment may be used for picket duty.

Column – The standard road march formation for regiments that are moving great distances use the column formation. The unit will move in four columns wide and is the least favorable formation for firing into the enemy. It is important for the Infantry formations to move quickly from column into line when about to engage the enemy.

Square – the Infantry Regiment is at the mercy of enemy cavalry formations that attack it from the flanks or rear if in Line formation. When enemy cavalry is in the area or a cavalry attack is expected, the Infantry regiment will form a defensive position called the square. Three companies or one battalion form(s) each of four sides of the square. This formation is suited for defending against Cavalry attacks but not prudent against follow-on Infantry attacks. This formation only allows one of the four battalions to engage enemy Infantry.

Pickets – Infantry Regiments will regularly deploy one company about 100-200 meters in front of the Regiment to act as an early warning to the Regiment. The soldiers of the Picket will spread out across the entire Regimental front with approximately 50 meter intervals between each soldier. As the enemy advances, the Pickets fire a few shots and run back toward their Regiment and return to the ranks. Often times it is common to employ three ranks of pickets; one rank each at 100 meters, 200 meters and 300 meters.

Cavalry

Line – Just like with the Infantry formation, this is a linear formation that faces the enemy in order to maximize shock effect through the assault. Generally, the cavalry regiment or squadron will move forward in two ranks, one behind the other and charge into enemy Infantry or Artillery formations. Only the lead rank will use the lance for the assault. Once the Cavalry formation passes through the enemy they move rapidly to their pre-designated rally point and reform for the next assault. The purpose of this linear assault is to break up enemy formations creating a penetration for follow-on Infantry formations to exploit. If the Cavalry formation is unable to regroup after an assault, they cannot continue their attack and become vulnerable to counterattack.

Column – The standard road march formation for regiments that are moving great distances use the column formation. The unit will move in two columns wide and is the least favorable formation for attacking the enemy. It is important for the cavalry formations to move quickly from column into line.

Wedge – Under certain circumstances, the cavalry will form a wedge or inverted “V” to hit the enemy at a specific point in order to force a penetration. The nose of the attack is weighted in order to reinforce the attack.

Vedettes – Cavalry units will place a small patrol of 4-6 cavalrymen at a specific point on the battlefield to act as early warning to let the rest of the army know if the enemy is approaching. If the ground a unit has chosen to fight on has a spiderweb array of roads, the defending unit may place a vedette on each of the roads leading into the town being defended. During the Battle of Gettysburg (ACW), General Meade placed vedettes along all the eight roads leading into the town from the west, north and east. The vedettes formed an surveillance umbrella.

Artillery

Line, Unlimbered – the Artillery batteries need to be unlimbered from their caissons in order to fire. The Line formation is used to maximize firepower against enemy positions. The cannons are placed no closer than ten meters from wheel hub to hub.

Column, Limbered – the artillery batteries are limbered to their caissons for movement along great distances. The batteries move single file in column formation during road marches.

##Branden-Ruthenian Guards Cavalry
All Guards Cavalry are dressed just as their non-Guards counterpart with the addition of the gold plated gorget worn around the neck.


Artillery
Regardless of Principality of origin, all cavalrymen wear the same uniform for the B-R Army. The Artillerists will "stack arms" while conducting fire missions. They are issued the Monsur Rifle Model 1840 for local protection.

B-R Artillerists wear a short black leather shoe with cream-colored canvas gaiters over a black trouser with a red 1" wide stripe along the outside of each leg. The artillerist's tunic is black with four rows of twelve gold buttons positioned vertically across the front sides tapering toward the waist. The hem is waist cut. The artillery soldier wears a black and red kepi with a colored pompon on top. The battalion number is emblazoned on the badge-plate of the kepi under crossed cannon barrels and the color of the Pompon denotes which battery the soldier is in. A tan great coat is available to the soldier during inclement weather.

Order of the Black Wolf (OBW) - Any officer of the Branden-Ruthenian Army or Navy who distinguished himself by gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life beyond the call of duty is deserving of being accepted into the Order of the Black Wolf.

If the recipient is a holder of both the OGW and OBW, then it is affixed below the OGW and to the left of the OBW.

Legion of Honor (LoH) - Any soldier of the Branden-Ruthenian Army or Navy who distinguished himself conspicuously by gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty is deserving of being awarded the Legion of Honor. This is the highest honor bestowed upon any deserving soldier of the B-R Armed Forces. Officers in possession of the OGW may receive this medal. If the Officer does not have the OGW, he will receive that distinction if warranted. This medal may be worn at the opening of the collar or above the left breast pocket. Medals are to be worn above Order Badges (OB).

Cross of Valor (CoV) - Any soldier of the Branden-Ruthenian Army or Navy who distinguished himself by gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life beyond the call of duty is deserving of receiving the Cross of Valor. This is the second highest honor bestowed upon any deserving soldier of the B-R Armed Forces. Officers in possession of the OBW may receive this medal. IF the officer does not have the OBW, he will receive that distinction if warranted. This medal is worn above the left breast pocket. Medals are to be worn above OBs. Order of precedence states the LoH is mounted closer to the heart than the CoV if the recipient holds both awards.

Cross of War (CoW) - Any soldier of the Branden-Ruthenian Army or Navy who distinguished himself by gallantry at the risk of his life beyond the call of duty is deserving of receiving the Cross of War.

Order of precedence states the CoW is mounted closer to the heart than the MM if the recipient holds multiple awards.

Combat Cross (CC) - Any soldier of the Branden-Ruthenian Army or Navy who serves during time of war is authorized to wear the Combat Cross. This award distinguishes those personnel who have answered the emperor's call and are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for their nation. This award ranks lower than medals of valor, but higher than campaign ribbons.

Campaign Ribbons - The Emperor may officially request a Campaign ribbon during or after the conclusion of a campaign from Parliament. Once the ribbon is approved by Parliament, the Emperor will authorize said ribbon to be worn by any soldier who served at least one day in the Army of Branden-Ruthenia during the time period established by Parliament for the wearing of said campaign ribbon. Older campaigns are ranked higher in precedence than newer ribbons and are ranked lower than the Combat Cross.
