    So the Russians had the dudes with wings on their backs, and not just the Poles? Neat.

    It's a Pom-pon, or whatever it's called in English.

    Sandris, Steph thank you very much again & again. :)
    I like Guards with Pom-pons (there's a word in Russian "помпон" - it sounds like "pompOn" and has the same meaning) & double headed eagle, so I I'll use them for Napoleonic era for Russia in my mod, even if it's not acceptable historically. Or... :) Steph, can you comment this acceptability?

    To my knowledge, during the Napoleonic wars every Russian regiments had switch to the Shako, except the Pavlov regiment which retained the standard Grenadier mitre until... 1914.

    The word is Pom-pom, Steph.

    And great units! Even though I never download units because I went off civ3 some time ago, I always enjoy regardless admiring the pictures of them. They are truly wonderful in every regard.

    Great work yet again, Sandris and Steph.

    I don't know about y'all, but when someone says 'uniforms with pompoms', Napoleonic Fusiliers ain't the first thing that comes to mind.
