The infantryman is the main army

Perhaps the infantryman is one of the oldestarms of the armed forces. Even when a caveman, having collected tribesmen and armed with cudgels and stones, went to the neighboring tribe to repel their food reserves or a more convenient parking lot - these were the first units of the infantry. Such troops require the least money investment and are the most massive type. Today the infantry uses motorized transport and, thanks to various types of weapons, is capable of performing any tasks: from searching for missing travelers to launching Grad missiles from portable tubes.

History of infantry

Already in antiquity in the arena of the ancientsbattles left the cavalry. However, in ancient Greece, hoplites appear and for several centuries make the infantry the most combat-ready and important army. Now the infantryman is a small mobile fortress with a spear. Their linear system, armor, armament allow them to successfully resist the enemy cavalry and destroy the infantry of the enemy.

Rome during its existence has introducedsignificant changes in the concepts of war, tactics, weapons. The infantry began to divide into a heavy one with massive armor, shields, spears, swords and darts and light, armed mainly with bows, darts and slingers. Armor of light infantry could be absent.

The armor was worn on the horse, turning the rider into a medieval tank. Such a heavy cavalry easily reached the enemy infantry, without receiving special damage from bows, and destroyed it. The infantry became an auxiliary part of the army in order to support their own, to distract the enemy's attention. In these times the infantryman is the service staff for the cavalry. She began to recruit from the militia, which could not get a good outfit. This was the case in Europe and the Middle East. In Asia and other steppe regions, they completely abandoned infantry, as they had to travel long distances, where there were no natural shelters.

Some people came up with fortresses, while others -artillery, and again the balance of power has changed. Manual artillery became the harbinger of small arms. Beginning to increase the number of shooters, and with the advent of firearms, their number has become predominant. There were guns with pieces, and then rifles, as a result, the infantry became infantry troops.

Artillery, tanks and aviation should help in everything. To date, many countries have issued doctrines on the supremacy of missile forces, but such transformations have not yet been completed.
