The Greater Prussian Imperial Military, in keeping with the ancient traditions of Greater Prussia (the previous Emperors: Napoleon IV, Thompson, and Paisley – were great supporters of cavalry use, and cavalry was used in great numbers during the Greater Prussian Civil War). Therefore, cavalry service is still considered to be a respectable thing among Prussian nobility, and major military academies still teach horse-riding to their students.
The below will outline the complete structure of the Greater Prussian Cavalry Regiment, working its way from the smallest to the largest unit.
Platoon: The Platoon is the smallest tactical cavalry unit, comprised of 36 enlisted men and their commander, normally a Lieutenant.
The enlisted men are typically armed with FN-FGRCC [FN-FGR Cavalry Carbine] rifles, produced in Allanea under license, as well as a pistol and a Mark I Cavalry Shashka. [in certain operations, each man can be issued a single anti-tank launcher, to be used dismounted]. However, to increase the firepower of the cavalry platoon, four men carry belt-fed cavalry machineguns, which are shortened and lightened for mounted use.
Squadron:The Squadron is the main tactical unit of the Greater Prussian cavalry. It is commanded by a Captain, and comprises of four squadrons, a Captain, a mobile field kitchen (manned by two cooks and a driver), as well as a buglar (de-facto working as the Captain's adjutant), and a Signals detachment comprised of five men. In total, therefore, the squadron has in it 149 enlisted men and five officers.
Regiment:The Regiment is the smallest operational cavalry unit. It is comprised of six cavalry squadrons (with a total of 616 men), a heavy weapons company [comprising of five high-mobility trucks, 50 men, and 30 sentry turrets), an orchestra (24 men), as well as a headquarters platoon [50 men, including signals] and a support company [50 men]. Thus, in total, the regiment has 1,050 men. It is run by a Colonel.
Division: The cavalry division has in its possession three cavalry regiments, a mechanized infantry battalion, the division headquarters a sapper company, an artillery regiment of 152mm self-propelled guns and one of AA systems, as well as a medical battalion, NBC recon company, a support battalion, a bridging company, and, finally, a helicopter regiment comprised of 24 attack helicopters. The division has 5000 men, and is run by a Brigadier-General.
Corps: Little can be said about the Greater Prussian Cavalry Corps except that it is comprised of four cavalry divisions, a battalion of artillery armed with MLRS launchers, a battery of cruise-missile launchers armed with the Lyran Arms Hellion, and an air regiment of 24 fixed-wing strike aircraft. It maintains a total of 21,300 men run by an Army General.
EDIT: Nvm, readed it wrong.
was that Derscon?
I've always liked the idea of the motorcycle/ATV/sandrail replacing the horse in cavalry formations.

Reichskamphen was a big fan of the original pastor at one point.
And of horses.
