Sarge Joe have you considered running your questions through google translate? Include the original text and the google output and we, or at least I, would be more able to help.

Sergeant Joe, heeft u overwogen uw vragen via Google Translate te laten verlopen? Voeg de originele tekst en de Google-output toe en wij, of in ieder geval ik, zouden beter kunnen helpen.

I think he is asking about the difference size / breed of horse in light and heavy cavalry.

Personal logo Artilleryman Supporting Member of TMP21 Nov 2020 2:11 a.m. PST

Or is it the horses assigned to the artillery? The harness horses used by horse and foot artillery?

Sarge Joe Supporting Member of TMP21 Nov 2020 2:30 a.m. PST

no just foot or horse artillery alleen het kanon mounts between them b.t.w. i use google translate

Sarge Joe Supporting Member of TMP21 Nov 2020 3:04 a.m. PST

Who can tell?

In a way I preferred the original thread title – "wath is the difference horse and except heir uniforms".

BillyNM21 Nov 2020 4:48 a.m. PST

So the different in equipment, the design and colour of limbers, caissons, gun carriages, etc? Is this all nations artillery equipment?

Sarge Joe Supporting Member of TMP21 Nov 2020 7:43 a.m. PST

yep cannon barrel
gun van brackets to move them?

Murvihill21 Nov 2020 8:52 a.m. PST

Primary difference is horse artillery has enough horses to mount everybody. Foot artillery the troops are on foot. It is generally assumed that horse artillery take lighter guns, but that isn't universal by any means. Do you have a specific country in mind?

Generally speaking the design of the ordnance was set by the weight e.g. 3 per, 6 per, etc. Whether they were manned by foot artillery or horse artillery they were the same design or colour within each army. However, though the colour was uniform some of the supporting vehicles could be of differing designs especially the wurst wagons such as used by the Bavarians.

The only exception are the Russians who had equipment designated ‘horse' or ‘foot'.

Hope that helps.

Sarge Joe Supporting Member of TMP21 Nov 2020 10:13 a.m. PST

so just the difference gun under carriages
thanks any way guys

I'm making some assumptions on your question, but this is what I think you are looking for.

Note the exact differences between horse and foot will be specific to each country and the actual year, and possibly even which Corps or Division. These details are due to partially implemented changes and available weapons.

Generally, the Foot artillery would be larger guns and have fewer horses to pull them. As a consequence, these weapons would only move at the speed of infantry. For example, the French I 1800 would have 8prs pulled by four horses in the Foot Artillery, but 4pders pulled by six horses in the horse artillery. However in 1815, the British used 9pdrs in both their Foot and Horse artillery.

Ik maak een aantal aannames over uw vraag, maar dit is wat u volgens mij zoekt.

Merk op dat de exacte verschillen tussen paard en voet specifiek zullen zijn voor elk land en het werkelijke jaar, en mogelijk zelfs voor welk korps of divisie. Deze details zijn het gevolg van gedeeltelijk doorgevoerde wijzigingen en beschikbare wapens.

Over het algemeen zou de voetartillerie grotere kanonnen hebben en minder paarden hebben om ze te trekken. Als gevolg hiervan zouden deze wapens alleen met de snelheid van infanterie bewegen. De Franse I 1800 zou bijvoorbeeld 8prs hebben die door vier paarden in de Foot Artillery worden getrokken, maar 4pders die door zes paarden in de Horse Artillery worden getrokken. In 1815 gebruikten de Britten echter 9pdrs in zowel hun voet- als paardartillerie.
