The Polish Hussars (Polish: Husaria) were the main type of cavalry of Polish Army (and later,the Polish-Lithuanian Army) between the 16th and 18th centuries. When this cavalry type was first introduced by the Serbian mercenary horsemen, they were serving as light cavalry banners (1500), and by the second half of the 16th century hussars had been transformed into heavy cavalry. Until the reforms of 1770s the husaria banners were considered the elite type of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth cavalry.

Husaria półciężka, znana z wielu zwycięstw formacja kawaleryjska Rzeczypospolitej, obecna na polach bitew od XVI, do początku XVIII wieku. Husaria była wykorzystywana do przełamywania sił nieprzyjaciela poprzez zadawanie rozstrzygających uderzeń w postaci szarż które, w okresie jej istnienia kończyły się zazwyczaj zwycięstwami. Ze względu na nietypowe uzbrojenie i taktykę husaria jest zaliczana do najskuteczniejszych formacji wojskowych w dziejach kawalerii.
