Answer . I believe that they used something called the Schilefin Plan of some sorts or other that a German general had made. He named the plan after himself. Anyway the plan was for Austria to send men to hold off Russia with some Germans while the main German armies held off the French and Briti…sh in the western front. More men had to be sent off to the eastern front because the plan didn't quite work in the end. It was well thought out though, and part of it worked. Anyway, Austria also had to beat the Serbs. The Serbs weren't very big but they did alright. They had weapon support from the French and the Russians were their allies.. One of Austria's old allies (Italy) then declared war on Austria, not Germany but later it did declare on them too. The Austrians pushed well at the beginning with a crushing defeat (with only peasant reserves who were not well equipped as all the main Austrian armies were in Russia) at the beginning but then the Italians hit back and struck Austria hard in 1917/18. This led to the Austro-Hungarian empire falling and Austria broke away from Hungary and I think a few minor states did too.. But there was also another army to face before they were destroyed. The Romanians declared in 1916, not long after the Italians declared and they too were old allies. But the Romanians were greedy and they headed straight for Transylvania. There they were crushed by a mixture of Germans, Austro-Hungarians and men from the Ottoman empire (Turkey and surounding places I believe). The Romanians were crushed within 4 months. But they still had 1/3rd of Romania but Bucherest (capital of Romania) was taken. They helped the Russians till the Russian revoloution.. The Austrian navy wasn't great but it did improve quite a bit during the war. Though the Germans had to do most of the fighitng with ships, Austria didn't do much or anything in Africa and I don't think it did much on the western front either.. Austria had made one of the finest pieces of Artillery during the war. Although they only made 20 of them they were brilliant. They were the m11 Howtwitzers. They were incredibly deadly. They could hit men within 400 yards and go through brick walls as far as 100 yards away. They were also incredibly accurate. They made their fortresses stronger by testing this things on them. This way they could find out what could withstand the best artillery in the world at that time. They also had (like germany) a good academy for officers. Their army wasn't massive but it was still pretty big. (MORE)
Answer . According to the Movie "Shop around the corner" from 1940, directed by Ernst Lubitsch, starring James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan, it appears that they use "Pengo" and "Filler" as currency. Based on a play written by MiklÃ³s LÃ¡szlÃ³ it is assumed that this currency was used i…n Hungry at least before WW2. If it is used before WW1 is not proven but likely to be true.. Answer . Further Research showed that in the years before WW1 the main cuurency was called Korona and Filler. The Pengo was introduced in 1925/ 26 and got replaced by the Forint in 1946 again by the communist party. (MORE)
Answer . From 1892-1918 - 1 Krone = 100 Heller (or Filler).. Before 1892 - 1 Gulden = 100 Kreuzer (or in Hungarian, 1 Forint = 100 Krayczar).. Pre-1857 - 1 Gulden = 60 Kreuzer (of 4 Heller each, so 1 Gulden = 240 Heller).. The Gulden was a rather 'heavy' unit, being equivalent to about 2 Mark…s. In 1892 it was halved. (MORE)

First it was Hungary under Habsburg rule from the 16th century. Later, there was a Hungarian Revolution in March, 1848, and a War of Independence against the Habsburg rule in 1848-49. It was unsuccessful. The absolutism and the oppresion became even stronger. When the Habsburgs suffered some militar…y failures and financial problems in the middle of the 19th century, in addition the threat of a strong united Germany and Italy became stronger (violiting the Habsburg dominance in Eastern Europe), they were forced to make a compromise with the Hungarians (the Magyars) in 1867. From 1867 to 1918 it was called Austria-Hungary It was a dual country with a common monarch, with common foreign, defense and finance ministers, but otherwise with separate capital citie, separate parliaments. After the First World War, in the Treaty of Versailles (1918-19)Austria-Hungary (or Austro-Hungarian Empire) dissolved. (MORE)

The companies, or the firearms? Glock USA is an importer. Since Glock pistols cannot be shipped as is due to the provisions of the Gun Control Act of 1968, they have to be shipped with adjustable sights in order to be importable. Glock USA receives the pistols, removes the adjustable sights, and rep…laces them with the standard fixed Glock sight, manufactured in the US. The firearms themselves are pretty much the same, except American Glocks are sold with American made sights.
