The Muscovite army was commanded by the Tsar himself. However during campaigns he appointed trusted volvodes to act in his place. One was granted the titles of First Volvode and given command of the "Great Regiment". Volvodes regiments - the equivalent of divisions - were commanded by volvodes, and ordinary regiments (pulk) were led by Golgova (Colonels).
In new pattern regiments, the officer corps was similar to that in West European armies, with regiments commanded by Colonels or Lieutenant Colonels.
