And here is the first Russian infantryman - a musketeer. The Russians had an unusually simple standardised uniform in almost every branch of the army, with each regiment distinguished only by its regional badge. The uniform was also rather old fashioned by the standards of the Seven Years War, with a rather more generous cut as seen, for example, in the more ample skirts of the waistcoat.
