    During the Early War (1804-1807), the Russian Army organized into:

    Musketeer Regiments
    • 1 Grenadier Battalion
    • 2 Musketeer Battalions

    Grenadier Regiments
    • 1 Grenadier Battalion
    • 2 Fusilier Battalions

    As I understand it, Kutusov didn’t think much of the grenadier battalions within the Musketeer Regiments, saying something akin to them being no better than the musketeer battalions they accompanied. However, he called them out specifically, which makes one likely to conclude that his statement was not indicative of the battalions of a Grenadier Regiment.

    Opinions?

    Cheers,
