The battle of Kutna Hora (detail) fought in a cold winter night between the Hussites, led by  Jan Zizka, and the combined Hungarian and German coalition led by King Sigismund of Hungary. The Hussites were a primarily infantry force based around the tactic of using war wagons as a bastion against enemy heavy cavalry assaults, a tactic Jan Zizka used to devastating effect.

The war wagon was a medieval development during the Hussite Wars around 1420 by Hussite forces rebelling in Bohemia. It was a heavy wagon given protective sides with firing slits and heavy firepower from either a cannon or a force of hand-gunners, archers and crossbowmen. Groups of them could form defensive works, and this early use of gunpowder and innovative tactics helped a largely peasant infantry stave off attacks by the Holy Roman Empire larger forces of mounted knights.
