firstly it amazes me that an army would even think of issuing a directive towards this? Are we to assume that prior to this being issues the Polish army was and did indeed consider using calvary towards combating armor or armored units?In 1937, the Polish army issued a “Directive on Combat between Cavalry and Armoured Units.”
ah the using the horse as a form of rabbit theory...unsure if armor units would simply assume the role of the hound and begin to chase calvary (the hare) as this sounds like a alice in wonderland tale regarding battle doctrine...It states that, “In view of the massive development of armoured forces the cavalry will continually face them and must learn to deal with them if they are to fulfill their assignments.” Cavalrymen are instructed to combat tanks by luring them into rough terrain and attacking them with anti-tank guns, horse artillery and anti-tank ammunition for rifles and machine guns.
Anyone know of any other country writing military doctrine of how to get armor to chase Calvary during battle?
Combat tanks sounds as to be meaning as to combat them as traditionally and IMHO perhaps some lesser read calvary men took to this role, rather then portraying combat as to be defined as ride/run/flea from armor so as to be used as a lure firstly.Cavalrymen are instructed to combat tanks by luring them into rough terrain
