Some people might ask why the battalion gun crews are all in artillery uniforms instead of some being in the parent regiment's uniform. In the Electorate army, battalion guns are actually from a special light artillery company in the artillery arm. This artillery company is parceled out to the regiments upon the beginning of a campaign. during peace time, they train with both the infantry regiment they are assigned to, and with the company in batteries. this has come in useful in the field, as the battalion guns can be detached and from a light battery of their own if need be, and still be effective. but to do so, it was decided from the start that they need to be self-sufficient, and cannot rely on additional manpower from the regiments. thus the battalion guns are manned entirely by the artillery arm.
