Along with giving detailed restrictions in regards to the amount of personnel allowed in each cavalry division of the German military, the Treaty of Versailles also laid out the exact number of weapons and rounds allowed per unit in each division. The most commonly used weapons were carbines (similar to rifles, but shorter in length), of which each division was allocated 6,000 guns, with 400 rounds each (a total of 5,525 men was allowed per division). Following this, each division was allocated twelve heavy machine guns and 7.7cm guns each, with 792 and 204 rounds per respective weapon.
