a military rank introduced in the 1680’s for artillerists among Peter the Great’s “boy-soldiers” (poteshnye). Since the late eighteenth century the term “bombardier” has designated a rank-and-file artillerist operating and servicing bombardment weapons (mortars, howitzers, and edinorogs [cannons cast in a form resembling a unicorn’s horn]); later, the term denoted a soldier’s rank (also bombardiergunner, bombardier-technician, bombardier-observer) in the artillery units of the Russian Army, corresponding to the rank of private first class in the infantry.
