Field Dragoon Regiment
Dragoons, just like soldat infantry and reiters, were a “new pattern” formation and were first employed during the 1632-1634 Smolensk war. In 1632, the dragoon regiment formed for the war against Poland included 1600 men, who served in 12 rotas, each of 120 dragoons. The regiment’s officer cadre and crews for the twelve attached regimental guns account for the 160 additional men in the regiment. On the battlefield, dragoons fought in a way similar to soldat infantry; that is with pikemen in the middle and musketeers on the flanks. Due to the non-noble nature of the formation, dragoons also were used for various engineering tasks and in the constructing of fortifications. When possible, dragoons also tried to make use of various obstacles or fortifications on the battlefield. When fighting dismounted, some of the men were sent to the rear to act as horse-holders and could not engage in combat.

Cossack Rabble means masses of Ukrainian peasants, the poor, herdsmen and all kinds of outlaws. Cossack Rabble took part en masse in almost every rebellion. Their equipment was improvised and typical for peasant formations. Armament mostly included clubs, axes, spears, forks, scythes and other primitive weapons. The Rabble was completely untrained and keeping discipline among the masses of drunk and bloodthirsty peasants was a serious problem.
