Hi,

Is it known if the Swedish army, or any other for that matter, used 3/4 armoured cuirassier cavalry? Similar to those in the english civil war commanded by Sir Arthur Haselrig?

thanks

Cuirassiers in 3/4 armour were not used since sirca 1634, so no place for them in BFaS armies.

Were any of the Imperial Cuirassier Regiments still in 3/4 armor and helm during the deluge?

No, as mentioned before such armour was out of service post-1634. Only officers use it to pose for paintings :)
