Why in Prague (2014) the Austrians fusiliers have 3 ranks and in Kolin (1994) the Austrian fusiliers have 4 ranks ?? Someone can give me solution ??

My understanding is that Browne specifically ordered his army to use three-rank lines. Daun's army (the one portrayed at Kolin) as well as most other Austrian forces was still using four ranks at this time.

If Browne had survived, that whole war might have turned out quite a bit differently...

Paul Borchers is correct. Browne arranged and ordered the infantry regiments in 3 ranks, presumable to extend the frontage of the army. There was a lot of area to cover at Prague with a long right flank. For Kolin, the less innovative Daun reverted to 4 ranks.
