မြန်မာဘုရင့်တပ်မတော် The army maintained a limited regular training regimen for its Palace Guards and Capital Defense Corps but no formal training program for its conscripts.
မြန်မာဘုရင့်တပ်မတော် The service to the army was organized according to the "ahmudan" ( ) system. The system, which had been in place since the Pagan era, required local chiefs to supply their predetermined quota of men from their jurisdiction on the basis of population in times of war. The village chiefs responded to mayors who in turn responded to governors and viceroys/sawbwas, who in turn responded to the high king. The quotas were fixed until the 17th century when Restored Toungoo kings instituted variable quotas to take advantage of demographic fluctuations. Some hereditary "ahmudan" villages, particularly those that had descended from European and Muslim corps, specialized in providing more skilled servicemen such as gunners and cannoneers. The selection of conscripts was left to the local headmen. Conscripts could provide a substitute or pay a fee in lieu of service. Conscripts often had to be driven into battle, and the rate of desertion was always high.
မြန်မာဘုရင့်တပ်မတော် To train the conscripts, the army relied on the non-state funded "pwe-kyaung" ( ) monastic school system at the local level for the conscripts' basic martial know-how. The "pwe-kyaungs" which, in addition to a religious curriculum, taught secular subjects such as astrology, divination, medicine (including surgery and massage), horse and elephant riding, boxing ("lethwei") and self defense ("thaing"). This system had been in place since Pagan times. In the lowland Irrawaddy valley but also to a lesser extent in the hill regions, all young men were expected to have received a basic level of (religious) education, and secular education (including martial arts) from their local Buddhist monastery.
မြန်မာဘုရင့်တပ်မတော် Secondly, the army never effectively solved the problems of transporting and feeding large armies, especially for the long-distance campaigns. Badly planned campaigns saw many conscripts perished even before a single shot was fired. Indeed, the ability to get supplies to the front was one of the most important factors in Burma's centuries long wars with Siam in which each side's sphere of influence was largely determined by the distance and the number of days supplies could be shipped to the front.
မြန်မာဘုရင့်တပ်မတော် Firearms, first introduced from China in the late 14th century, became integrated into strategy only gradually over many centuries. The first special musket and artillery units, equipped with Portuguese matchlocks and cannon, were formed in the 16th century. Outside the special firearm units, there was no formal training program for the regular conscripts, who were expected to have a basic knowledge of self-defense, and how to operate the musket on their own. As the technological gap between European powers widened in the 18th century, the army was dependent on Europeans' willingness to sell more sophisticated weaponry.
