This formation was created in Moscow in 1632, however it did not appear in larger numbers until after 1654, during the war with Poland and Lithuania. The Reiters were the main strike force of Muscovite cavalry in the second half of the 17th century. It was organized according to the Western European model. Units were disciplined, well-trained and well-armed - mostly with imported weapons. Reiters were equipped with long firearms, a pair of pistols and a backsword or saber. Armour included a metal Western-pattern helmet and a breastplate.
