This Ottoman heavy cavalryman wears armour of typical mail-and-plate construction. His decorated cicak helmet features a sliding nasal bar and a mail aventail to protect the throat and neck. The zirh mail shirt is supplemented by a korazin cuirass of torso and shoulder plates, as well as kolluk vambraces and dizcek armour protecting the knee and thigh. He carries a bound cane kalkan shield.
