Austria-Hungary (German: Österreich-Ungarn or Donaumonarchie; Hungarian: Osztrák–Magyar Monarchia or Ausztria-Magyarország), also known by other names and often referred to as the Austro-Hungarian Empire in English-language sources. was a constitutional union of the Austrian Empire and the Kingdom of Hungary that existed from 1867 to 1918, when it collapsed and as a result was defeated in World War I.

SingleplayerEdit

The faction is the main opposing force during the campaign chapter Avanti Savoia. There are several types of soldiers, using specific weapons and wearing specific, blue-gray uniforms. These types are:

    • Rifleman - They look similar to the Multiplayer Medic, minus crutches on their back. They use Gewehr M. 95.
    • Assault - They look identical to the Multiplayer Assault and use a Hellriegel 1915. There is another, very rare, variant of Assault. They wear a Gaede helmet and use an MP 18.
    • Support - they look similar to Multiplayer Support, but they wear a Stahlhelm instead of full-face helmet. They use Madsen MG.
    • Scout - They look identical to Multiplayer Scout and use a scoped Gewehr M. 95.
    • Flame Trooper - They look identical to the Multiplayer one and use the same Wex flamethrower all Flame Troopers use.
    • Sentry - They have a unique look, because they wear a full-face helmet (the same as MP Support) instead of an armored mask. They use the MG 08.
    • Officer - One of them appears when the player reaches Ferro Fortress. He uses an P08 Pistol.

MultiplayerEdit

Austria-Hungary is one of six factions that are set to initially appear in Battlefield 1. They appear with blue-gray colored field-jackets and trousers, and are equipped mostly with German-style webbing and headgear, including the iconic Stahlhelm. However, some soldiers are also seen to be wearing the indigenous soft field Kappe. Their armored vehicles are adorned with double headed eagles on the front and flank, as seen in the "Anti-Tank Dynamite" teaser trailer for the game.

The Austro-Hungarian army fight exclusively in the Italian Theatre against the Royal Italian Army, both in the mountainous north and coastal east of the country.

TriviaEdit

  • The Austro-Hungarian soldiers can speak English, identical to the British Army in the first person voice overs, and third person voice overs if the "Faction Speaks my Language setting" is changed.
  • The Austro-Hungarian soldiers for the Assault and Medic Classes wear the Berndorfer Helmet, similar looking to the German Stahlhelm. 
  • In multiplayer, the flag used is actually that of the Austrian Empire, prior to the Austro-Hungarian Compromise of 1867, which lead to the formation of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. A likely reason for this could be that the civil ensign (which was not a true national flag) commonly associated with Austria-Hungary could be mistaken with the national flag of the Kingdom of Italy.
