History of The Kaiserlich-Königliche Armee

The name "Imperial and Royal Army" was born in 1745 and the "royal" part referred to the Apostolic Kingdom of Hungary. The key feature of the army of the Austrian Empire during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars (1792-1815) was that, due to the multi-national nature of the territories, regiments were split into Germans units (which included Czech-troops recruited from Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia, Polish and Ukrainian units recruited from the territory of Galicia, Flemings and Walloons territory of the former Austrian Netherlands, and Italians) and Hungarian units (which included troops from Croatia and Transylvania).
Wartime conscription resulted in elements of untrained men in every battalion, a problem exacerbated by incoherent training across the regions. The army was beset by constant government frugality and a plethora of confusing orders and reorganisations. Although some regiments were disbanded in 1809 following the loss of their recruiting-grounds, others were allocated new areas yet kept their old designations; for example, the Walloon regiments whose recruiting areas were transferred to Bohemia.
The most powerful individual in the Army of the Austrian Empire during the period was Archduke Charles, who implemented wide-ranging and modernising reforms, particularly following the crushing defeat at Austerlitz. Charles was responsible for the severe heck Napoleon suffered at the battle of Aspern-Essling, but after the subsequent defeat at Wagram retired from active commandSource

History of the Regiment

In total there were more than 60 Infantry regiments within the Imperial and Royal army of Austria. The Nr57 was a 'German' unit, comprised and recruited mainly of Bohemian infantrymen. They weren't officially German, because of the location being the contemporary Czech Republic, but were under jurisdiction of the German speaking part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Therefore the main instated language was that of German, but factually very little of their members spoke German, and only a few of the officers and NCOs which lead the troops had an adequate grasp on the German language. Nonetheless, the Nr57 as German Fusiliers, being considered the elite of the Austro-Hungarian infantry, despite the language issues, were considered a crucial part of the army and were not afraid to show their strength on the battlefield. The Germans were moreover known for their unprecedented accuracy and their morale and discipline in battle. They were some of the few elite units in the Napeolonic Era who knew how to apply (and hold) the cavalry square, without losing faith or routing, for a long time.

History of the Uniform

Colours of the Nr57:

The Austrian infantrymen wore the simplest uniforms during the Napoleonic era in Europe. It was comprised of a white outfit, and the only colouring which would identify the origin and number of the regiment, was a colouring of the collars and arm-facings, along with part of the inside of the jacket being coloured in the regimental colours. To show that the unit was of a 'German' origin, the breeches (trousers) were also coloured white, contrary to the Hungarian units, which wore sky blue breeches, with golden insignia. The original design for the uniforms (except for the colours) was adopted from the British uniforms, which shared in their simplicity, back at the beginning of the 19th century. The hat which the infantry wore was a simple shako, copied off the then existent military norm. Prior to 1807 (approx.) the larger part of the army would wear a cap, similair to the cuirassier helmets, which the Infantry got rid of around 1808 but remained the standard wear for the cuirassier units.
The officers of the German Fusiliers would share the same clothing, but would not carry a backpack and often had a different colour to make them easier to spot. They would carry a black outfit, breeches and jacket, with the same colours of the regiment as the enlisted, on their facings and collar.

The Austrio-Hungarian infantry would often carry no more than a standard bayonet rifle, occasionaly accompanied by a sabre briquet. However it would sometimes occur that German Fusilier units would show up without a bayonet attached to their rifle, as it made their accuracy better and allowed for more agile movement.
The officers wore nothing more than a pistol and a standard line-infantry-officer sword.

Damn I just checked FSE after weeks, I'll just say:

Yes I made the brackets
No I didn't come up with the swap idea but liked it and made my case
Yes I consulted it with the organisers and a couple people
No it wasn't an accident and I don't regret it

I won't elaborate not to agitate the argument more but I'll say some people in this thread have made the very same claims in favor I had in mind when deciding the final. But I also don't value my own opinion over that of the entire community so when complains arose regarding it I was also the organiser most willing to discuss it. In any case I'm glad it's settled and I'm happy people will appreciate we had the balls to make this year different. (No I'm not being shallow I just don't want to get into details (again))
