Cavalry usually operated in Brigades of two regiments with additional troops. A normal cavalry soldier was usually/supposed to be armed with a cavalry sword for traditional purposes, a rifle (the Gabha R-15, if not, he had another main armament, like a light machine gun, like the Gabha R-22), hand granades and a handgun, the Gabha Pistol, Semi-Automatic, Model 1910. His equipment for tending to himself and to his horse was in saddle bags on either side of him.

Primary role of a cavalry regiment was not to get caught, to harass the enemy and to disrupt him whenever possible, as well as to not get caught, not by a superior force. For that purpose, the regimental artillery could be dispersed amongst the squadrons or operate completely independent.
