PostSubject: Organization of the Regiment   Mon Dec 02, 2013 8:20 am

Musketier Battalion Organization



Each battalion of a Prussian infantry regiment has four companies, each led by a Kaptain (Kpt.). The battalion is led by a Major, who is assisted by an Premierleitneant (who served as an adjustent). Each company consisted of around 150-200 men, so overall the battalion had a theoretical strength of around 800 men. This was merely an on paper strength however, and a battalion may not be able to reach these numbers, due to casualties/desertions or other such problems. The companies were to be numbered 1 through 4, and they were to be distinguished by the color of their saber knots (However, I have I doubt this system continued to the landwehr). To scale things to the size believable in Mount and Blade: Napoleonic wars, the battalion size will be half of what they were in realty. This means a battalion will only make up two companies, and each Zug of a company has half of the men they were supposed to have in the real world Prussian Army. Because of lack of information, all of the organization of the 4te will be based around that of the Prussian line infantry regiments.

Musketier Kompanie Organization





The Main tactical unit of the 4te Prussian landwehr is the company. This unit will field anywhere from 20-40 members per event. Because of the fact that we can not guarantee 100% attendance at any given one time, the company’s strength will be 74 members in total. The company will be divided into two platoons, also known as a Zug. Each platoon will train both independently and together, enabling the company to fight in both individual zugs, or the company as a whole. The drills and maneuvers on the company level will center around the idea of using this zugs to maximum effect. Splitting the line, firing by section, and directing orders by section will be a core principle of the 4te drill book.

Musketier Zug Organization




The Infantry Zug is the most widely used tactical unit of the 4te landwehr on the field. The zug is a platoon, which will make up one half of a musketeer company, and can fight both independently and alongside the other zug of the company. The zug will be led by a junior officer (a OberLieutenant for Zug 1, and a Lieutenant for zug 2) who will have complete command of the zug. It is his job to run the zug, organize the sections of the zug, and lead the unit on the field. It is the job of the officer to train and establish the zug’s NCO's and to make sure they correctly run their sections. To help him run the zug, the officer will be assigned a senior NCO (Fwbl) to help him run the unit smoothly, and to do administrative duties, such as take attendance, or update the zug roster.





Sections
Just like the company, the zug is divided into two sub-units. Each one of these units is known as a 'section' and will be titled: Section 1, and Section 2. Each section will be led by an NCO (Uffz), who is responsible for his section. He will be in charge of training of the section, and will head the sections column on the field. To assist the Unteroffizier in the running of the section, two Korporal's will be selected from the ranks to help watch the men of the section during linebattles and training, serve as examples to the rankers, and to assist when the Unteroffizier may be absent.
