I don't watch this guy, but as a ONE VS ONE ME FAGGOT, PIKE VS PIKE they really didn't. Pike used in the Swiss fashion was used to induce routes. Pike used in a defensive fashion, if it held, was a bit crazy to fight with pike.>Well, how do you know that????
Because there was 200 years of combined arms to support pike groups. Like that picture you posted has flanking cavalry, maybe pistoleers/reiters. Your job as a supporting arm for hot pike vs pike action was to disrupt the front line of heavily armored pike and hopefully break the formation enough to cause a route or for your pike to be able to drive them from the field.
Seriously, there was so much batshit crazy combined arms tactics in the era simply because pikes were such a bitch to deal with when they were well trained.>>117927140
Also, why does he wear his shirt collars like that?
