In the Russian Army of the18th century, especially in the wars with Turkey, the combatformation of the troops was constructed of several carrés. In thefirst half of the 18th century the Russian troops used large carrés;in the second half of the 18th century P. A. Rumiantsev in theBattle of Kagul (1770) deployed his troops in several smallcarrés, each with 3, 000 to 4, 000 men, which facilitated the im-plementation of maneuvers. A. V.
