Huszár Platoon (HU708)

Huszár Platoon (HU708) Huszár Platoon (HU708)
includes one Command team, one Huszár squad, one Medium base & two Large bases.

The Huszárs have always been Hungary’s elite and have the traditions of hundred’s of years of warfare behind them. However, they are a thoroughly modern fighting force. They are equally at home fighting on horseback or on foot and are supported by machine-guns, mortars, anti-tank guns and their own pioneers. Mounted they are equals to any cavalry or infantry force in the field, and on foot they defend with stubborn determination.

The advantages of the mounted Huszár become obvious on the Russian Front. A mounted force can easily navigate the open woodland and marshes of Byelorussia. Speed is their major asset, especially on the counterattack, where the enemy is not set for defence and the surprise of a cavalry force appearing on the flank can send even the steadiest company into disarray.

If the battle conditions do not suit cavalry operations the Huszárs simply dismount and fight as elite infantry with all the skill and will of any full-time infantry platoon.
