Hi everyone
Did polish Haiduks use bardiche axe and musket at all?
Or did bardiche axe come into use with Sobieskis reforms around 1670- by which time haiduks were not around in large numbers?
Hoping some experts can help in this ...
Regards
Peter

No, haiduks just have arquebus/musket, sabre and sometimes small axe. During Sobieski's reform bardiche axe was introduced only for 'Western' infantry. While it is possible that later during the period some private unit could have bardiche, it was not normal equipment.

Thanks for that!
It confirms what I thought and will assume that they weren't armed with any
