Austria did not create regular light infantry battalions until 1798 and their existence was short lived. Austrian tactics did not make the best use of light troops, despite the success of such groups in the Frencha and British armies. In 1801 the light regiments were disbanded and were replaced by TYrolean jagers armed with rifles.
