Tatars et Bashkires Russes, Cavalerie Irrégulière des Guerres Napoléoniennes

The history of the Tatars begins avec the Mongolian Golden Horde of the 13th Century. The Tatars were the main population group of the Khanats Kasan, Astrakhan, Kasimov et Sibir, which belonged to la Russie as early as the 16th Century. Tatars are primarily muslims ou decendents of muslims. Teptar Tatars share lingual et cultural similarities avec the Bashkirs. Tatars et Bashkirs were nomadic horsemen who served comme cavalerie irrégulière de l'armée russe. They carried more antiquated weapons et equipment than the Cosaques, including the composite bow. Regiments were nominally organized into five "Sotnia" of 100 Lancers each, although this strength could not be maintained on campaign.
