Does anyone knows whether the Austrian armies of Field Marshal Radetzky in the 1st Italian war of Independence had any Freikorps or volunteer units in their composition?

I wish there were more materials in English. I just read Michael Embree's "Radetzky's Marches" and it is clear that the 1848 campaign has it all for wargamers from Armies, to uniforms, to sieges, pitched battles, town assaults and house-to-house combats, river crossings and plenty of counterfactual interventions by Prussians, Russians and maybe British.
