                  • Those helmets... I wonder about how useful they would be

                    • Just ask the cuirassiers about the effectiveness of armour

                        • Well, cavalry as a whole was much less effective in the war of the new era. The cuirass cannot protect against the shots of tanks, aircraft or machine guns as well as the horses are often being killed causing injuries or death to the rider himself.
                          As a matter of fact cuirassiers were abolished as a branch of the cavalry in the Austrian army in 1868.
                          Cuirasses were used only as part of the parade uniform in the German and Russian regiments of this units from the end of 19th century until 1918 and 1917 respectively when these empires stopped to exist.
                          In the French army cuirassiers used their armour, covered with cloth, in combat during the first weeks of the war - however most regiments stopped using their armour because it proved to be ineffective. It was formally ordered in October 1915 that all units of the cuirassier regiments should abolish the usage of armour.
                          Time is inside of us and we are inside time. It turns us and we turn It.

                          • My question was basically- why is the helmet designed like that? It looks uncomfortable and pretty much useless.

                            • If you mean the helmets of the dragoons of 1er regiment that PGT Beauregard published above, I think they are heritage from the Empress' Own dragoons during the Napoleonic era:



                              With the development of warfare as I stated in the post above it remained more as a part of the tradition than a real part of the arms.
