Weapons in the Golden Horde

Military equipment of the Golden Horde military leaders was distinguished by an exceptionally luxuriant decoration. Ornate helmets and armor set them apart from ordinary warriors, giving them the necessary status. But the armour was not only exquisite, but above all, it was functional - reliable, durable and convenient in battle. A warrior whose main weapon was a spear was called a spearman. The spears reflected the specifics of the Mongolian military art - their tips were long and narrow. Sometimes below the blade a spear had a hook used to pull an enemy off their horse.
