Modern cavalry types

  • Air assault [r]: Military operations in which infantry are carried by aircraft onto, or very near, the target, or by parachuting. The aircraft may be helicopters, tilt-rotor aircraft, short-landing transports, or, historically, gliders. [e]
  • Armor (disambiguation) [r]: Add brief definition or description
  • Armor (military unit) [r]: A unit, or branch of service, historically derived from cavalry, that specializes in operating from armored fighting vehicles, using speed, maneuver, heavy weapons, and shock attack to dominate their enemy [e]
  • Armored fighting vehicle [r]: A military vehicle that is both protected against blast and fragments, and either has offensive weapons or directly supports combat by vehicles with offensive weapons [e]
  • Armored personnel carrier [r]: A lightly armed and armored, wheeled or tracked, military vehicle that protects passengers from light weapons and artillery fragments, and delivers them to the battlefield where they fight on foot [e]
  • Infantry fighting vehicle [r]: A vehicle intended to carry infantry onto a battlefield, sometimes allowing them to fight from inside and always to dismount and fight on foot; it accompanies dismounts and provides heavier fire support than they can carry [e]
  • Tank (military) [r]: A large land combat vehicle that moves on continuous tracks rather than wheels, has its primary armament in a rotating armored turret, is armored against more than small arms fire, and, while it can be extremely effective in many combat situations, is optimized to kill other tanks [e]
