                             (Headquartered at Komorn)

         Mostly composed of landwehr and Insurrectio troops, with but very few regulars
         present. Composition and strength very questionable.

         There were various other Austrian forces in Hungary, the Tyrol, and Germany
         totalling approximately 40,000 effectives.
