The infantry units are divided into the classic Infantry Brigade Combat Team, consisting of, among other things, three infantry battalions and support units. In 2014 it consisted of approximately 4,400 personnel and a Stryker vehicle infantry brigade (Stryker Brigade Combat Team) based on three motorized infantry battalions and support units.

MARS 72101 TURKISH HEAVY ARTILLERY XVII century. During the 17th century, the Ottoman Turkish army took part in numerous armed conflicts, such as the war with the Commonwealth (1672-1676) or the war with Austria, and later the Holy League (1683-1699). Of course, this army changed throughout the 17th century and its artillery changed with the changes in the army. It is worth mentioning that the traditions of the use of fire artillery by the Turkish army date back to the first half of the 15th century, and some historians claim that this type of artillery was used by the Turks as early as the end of the 14th century. These traditions continued into the 17th century, and the size of the artillery corps grew steadily, from about 6,500 people in 1598 to about 15,300 people in 1699. It is worth adding that Turkish artillerymen (Turkish topcu) were treated as part of the standing army ( kapu kulu Turkish), similarly to, for example, the Janissaries, which in turn resulted in their often good training and considerable combat prowess. Another interesting fact is that very often Christians were recruited as artillerymen. On the battlefield, or even more so during sieges, Turkish artillery played a significant role. Examples include the Turkish victory at Baghdad in 1638, or the Battle of Vienna (1683), ignominiously defeated by the Turkish leader Kara Mustafa.

The US Army Rangers (full name: United States Army Rangers), or Rangers for short, are a light infantry unit of the US Army whose roots date back to the 17th century! It was then that units of irregular troops (actually militia) with this name were formed, intended to fight the Indians. The unit of that name also took part in the United States Revolutionary War (1775-1783). However, the genesis of the modern US Rangers troops dates back to the Second World War, and more precisely to June 1942, when on the initiative of Col. Lucian Truscotta was formed the 1st Ranger Battalion. The soldiers of this unit took part during Operation Torch (1942) and subsequently in North Africa, until the summer of 1943. Subsequently the unit was expanded by the 3rd and 4th battalions. These units took part in the battles on the Apennines (1943-1944), but in the course of their course they suffered such large losses that they were disbanded. Simultaneously and temporarily, the 2nd and 5th Ranger Battalions, which took part in the fighting in Normandy, were formed almost simultaneously in the United States. However, after 1945, all battalions of this formation were disbanded. They were reformed for the purposes of the Korean War (1950-1953) and Vietnam (1964/1965-1975) as independent companies, theoretically forming the 75th Infantry Regiment. In 1974 the 1st and 2nd Ranger Battalions were created and in 1984 the 3rd Battalion joined them. All of these battalions remain in active service to the present day. Soldiers from these battalions fought, among other things, in the Second Gulf War (2003) and during operations in Afghanistan (after 2001).
