Abensberg: Order of Battle

Here is a quick run down of the units I'll need to assemble for the Battle of Abensberg in my fictional 1809 campaign. This is just a rough run through and some of the details may change.

Austrians:

III Korps: Hohenzollern
Div Kayser: 2 x INF
Div Thierry: 2 x INF (roll for attrition)
Div St Julien: 3 x INF
Div Vuk'vich: 1 x INF, 1 x MIXED (roll for attrition)
Div Pfanzeleter: 1 x INF, 1 x LC
Artillery: 2 x Foot Artillery

IV Korps: Rosenberg
Div Hohenlohe: 2 x INF
Div Stutterheim: 1 x INF
Div Somariva: 1 x INF, 1 x MIXED
Div Radivojev: 1 x INF, 1 x LC
Div Vecsey: 1 x INF, 1 x LC

V Korps: Archduke Louis
Div Lindenau: 3 x INF
Div Reuss Plauen: 2 x INF
Div Sch'tkh: 1 x INF, 1 x MIXED
Div Radetxky: 1 x MIXED, 1 x LC
Artillery: 2 x Foot Artillery

VI Korps (minus detachments): Hiller
Div Kottulinsky: 2 x INF
Div Vincent: 3 x INF
Div Reinwald: detached
Div Nordmann: 1 x INF, 1 x MIXED
Artillery: 2 x Foot Artillery

Grenadier Reserve: Leichtenstein
4 x INF (Grenadiers)

Cavalry Reserve: Hessen-Homburg
Heavy Cavalry: 4 x HC
Light Cavalry: 3 x LC
Artillery: 1 x Cavalry Artillery

Totals (excluding IV Korps): 25 INF, 4 MIXED, 5 LC, 4HC, 6 Foot Art, 1 Cav Art

French

7th Corps: Lefebvre
Div Pr Royal: 2 x INF, 1 x LC, 1 x Foot Artillery
Div Wrede: 2 x INF, 1 x LC, 1 x Foot Artillery
Div Deroi: 2 x INF, 1 x LC, 1 x Foot Artillery (roll for attrition)

3rd Corps: Davout
Div Morand: 3 x INF
Div Friant: 3 x INF
Div Gudin: 4 x INF
Div Demont: 1 x INF
Light Cavalry: 3 x LC
Artillery: 1 x Foot Artillery, 1 x Horse Artillery

8th Corps: Vandamme
3 x INF, 2 x LC, 1 x Foot Artillery

Heavy Cavalry
Div Nansouty: 3 x HC
Div d'Espagne: 2 x HC

Totals: 20 x INF, 8 x LC, 5 x HC, 5 x Foot Artillery, 1 x Horse Artillery

The French are outnumbered on paper, particularly if the Austrian IV Korps should appear, but they will have a definite edge in their command quality. Both armies have a mix of average and veteran troops so the French will not have the advantage here that they may have experienced in 1805-1807.

Your building up the tension, looking forward to the AAR!!!!!

I am also paying attention to your campaign system as this could be something for my group later.

Thanks for sharing
